Zoo-de-Mackinac – May 20 – 21, 2017


THE 28th ANNUAL ZOO-DE-MACK BIKE BASH
THE WEEKEND OF MAY 20-21st, 2017

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!

ENTRY FEE:
$60 through May 6, 2017. $75 from May 7, 2017 through May 20, 2017. Entry fee includes the pre-ride party Friday night at the Zoo Bar at Boyne Highlands, luggage transportation to Mackinaw City on Saturday, lunch at the Legs Inn on Saturday, finish line party in Mackinaw City, round trip ferry transportation to and from Mackinac Island on Star Line Ferry and post-ride parties on Saturday afternoon at The Crossings and evening parties on the island.

Have a blast! Last year was wonderful!

Anyone remember this from last year?

Karen Mette Peck got to do this again next year😜

Too cold for me!! Would love to do it again!

Have fun 🇨🇦🇨🇦🇨🇦

Severely bummed that we aren't there, next year we return with bells on!

not that I hate this page or organization, but FB is telling me that I liked it and I am now receiving notifications. Can someone explain to me how FB did this to me?

I had a great time. Great planning!

great times. it was fun great planning this year

I'm curious as to why you do this so early in the year. We don't normally get up North for at least another couple weeks. Not complaining, just wondering if there's a reason for the early date in the summer?
