bikeBIG MAC SHORELINE SPRING & FALL SCENIC BIKE TOUR AND RIDE ACROSS THE MACKINAC BRIDGE
June 14-15, 2014 & September 13-14, 2014

PLEASE NOTE:  THERE IS NO LIMIT ON THE NUMBER OF RIDERS!


Bicycle enthusiasts will once again be filling the area mid June & mid September for a chance to pedal the area's scenic routes and infamous Mackinac Bridge during Mackinaw City's Annual Spring & Fall Shoreline Scenic Bike Tours. Riders from across the Midwest assemble at the Mackinaw City High School early on Saturday morning and will have the opportunity to choose between several different scenic routes, both inland and along the lakeshore.

All routes will be clearly marked by color-coordinated directional arrows to prevent riders from going astray and Big Mac safety wagons, distinguished by flashing lights and magnetic signs, will be patrolling designated areas in case of any cycling mishaps.

Registered participants will also be provided with a light, cookout-style lunch upon completion of their rides including hot dogs, veggies, potato salad, chips & cookies that afternoon back at the school pavilion.

On Sunday, riders over the age of 13 will have the opportunity of a lifetime as they are allowed to pedal across the Mackinac Bridge and take in the picturesque surroundings of the Straits of Mackinac.

The Spring Bike Tour was created in 1992 and the Fall Tour was added in 1994 to compliment the Spring Tour. These tours are designed as a recreation event allowing families to enjoy this healthy activity together.

It takes a Community of involved volunteers to put on this successful ride. Bike tour positions include: food/rest stop organizers;  Registration;  Lunch; Lunch chefs; Ham operators throughout the ride; Stop hosts;  Sag vehicles and route supervisors; Bridge ride directional; Bridge safety vehicles.  We would also like to thank the Mackinac Bridge Authority, Shepler's Ferry, the Mackinaw City Police, & Dave Paquet.
