Zoo-de-Mackinac – May 17, 18 & 19, 2019

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!

Instagram post 18030694216160628 I took a little break from Instagram the last 5 days. Mostly because I was biking 51 miles in 36 degrees and freezing wind and rain. It was super crappy. And also because I shattered my phone screen. 😩 Those days are behind me though! So since I’m back, I thought I’d do a re-introduction for new followers 😏 This is my little family. Sometimes I include them in my Instagram life πŸ˜‰ Guy, my husband, and Molly and Jotham, my crazy 8 year olds ❀️This account is me (Britah) sharing our occasional travels, updates from the women being empowered in Uganda and Kenya through non profits that I advocate for, and spreading the word on fair trade/ethical fashion companies. What’s something else you’d like to know about me or would like to see me share about more often on here? I want to know! .
