Boyne Highlands – Zoo-de-Mack Bike Bash – May 21 – 22, 2016

The Zoo-de-Mackinac is a weekend of huge parties with great bands, one of the most scenic bicycle rides in the country, a lot of sunshine, views of the mighty Mackinac Bridge, and one magical island.

THIS IS NOT A RACE! The Zoo-de-Mackinac is a collection of outdoor enthusiasts (3,500 in 2011) who want to enjoy a little physical exercise together in one of the most beautiful areas in the state of Michigan. The bike ride starts Saturday morning at Boyne Highlands Resort and spans 51 miles along Lake Michigan on a paved road with very little automobile traffic.

Riders pedal through rolling countryside and trillium covered forests, along sandy beaches, and are surrounded by breathtaking views of Lake Michigan from 400′ high bluffs. We stop approximately half way, at a unique place called the Legs Inn for a leisurely lunch and to swap stories.

The ride continues on to Mackinaw City, where Arnold Ferry boats have been chartered for the ride over to Mackinac Island. Once on the magical island, check into your hotel and stroll into town to forget the aches and pains from the day’s ride. As the evening wears on, the island comes alive with The Gatehouse, Pink Pony, and Horns hosting post ride parties with incredible live bands!

If only the colors of the trees looked this amazing. Nevertheless it’s a beautiful ride and the course is a thousand times better than the Zoo de Mack Bike Ride.

Lets hope the bike riders can figure out how to share the road and ride appropriately. 4 across or more is definately not single file. I hate this weekend as a local who lives near boyne highlands!!!

Matt Osiecki Want to do with kids???
