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 (4,000 in 2014-16) 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 Star Line 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!

Congratulations on your success! Thank you for sharing your story North Arrow Endurance Coaching5 years ago one of my oldest friends and I decided to go for a bike ride at an event called the Zoo-de-Mackinac, Inc.; it was 51 miles of tomfoolery and fun!! On the way home we decided to do a triathlon which eventually snowballed into everything from open water swim events to full distance Ironman!! Along this journey my passion for helping others grew and North Arrow Endurance was born!! We haven’t missed a year since that first one and don’t plan to anytime soon!! Don’t forget where you started, the road may be long and winding and sometimes it’s easy to forget all the things you have accomplished along the way #stayhumble #endure #northarrowstrong ...
