The 23-mile loop that carried motor cycle riders far into the county before returning to Ocean Boulevard in Myrtle Beach was not used this year. Myrtle Beach officials decided not to require the loop after traffic on Ocean Boulevard proved to be much lighter than anticipated. The one-way loop was scheduled to go in effect 10 p.m. to 2 a.m. Friday through Monday.
The bike loop has been controversial since it was first implemented in 2015. The NAACP filed suit against Myrtle Beach claiming it is discriminatory in nature. But before the Atlantic Beach rally began, a circuit court judge ruled it was not discriminatory. Do you agree with the judge that the bike loop does not discriminate against African American bikers?
