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!

ZOO-DE-MACK 2020 UPDATE - MON 3/30/20
Greetings Zoo-de-Mackers - Here is a quick update:

We were very hopeful the past few weeks that things would improve around the state by the time Zoo-de-Mack is scheduled (May 15th -- still 7 weeks away) as things are very unpredictable.

As many of you have begun to hear, some (but not all by any means) of the hotels on the island have opted not to open on May 1st and under the circumstances are moving their opening later. The Grand Hotel is mostly convention business so they are not opening until 5/22 (Memorial Day weekend). We are in touch with the visitors bureau who seems to think that most island hotels will remain open - but the new info is a day by day basis.

**The scheduled event is still 7 weeks away***

The ZDM team is in the process of checking with dozens of local businesses, vendors and hotels to identify a postponement date for the fall. We are only 48 hours away from finalizing the most likely date. As you can imagine there are a TON of moving parts from hotels, ferry service, Legs Inn and working around other large events and conventions already scheduled on the island.

Thank you for your patience! A formal email and Facebook announcement will be released soon. We still look forward to the 31st Annual Ride!
We are recommending to wait a few days to modify any of your reservations so you can adjust your reservations with one phone call.
As soon as full details are available check the Zoo-de-Mack Facebook page for details as well as your email inboxes. We'll be posting details as they are available on the We Bike Detroit FB page as well.

In the meantime stay hopeful and healthy!!
