There is limited parking space available west of the Mackinac Bridge Authority plaza area. The bus loading area is located at Conkling Park and the State Dock on South Huron Avenue in Mackinaw City, or
b. Buy your tickets in Mackinaw City at the bus loading area, board a bus to St. Ignace, walk the bridge and then return to your vehicle. The buses are hired for your convenience by the Mackinac Bridge Authority. The Authority strongly advises walkers to arrange for their own transportation to the starting point because of the increasing demand on the buses.

4. Tickets go on sale and buses begin transporting walkers at 5:30 a.m. from Mackinaw City. Bus service from Mackinaw City to St. Ignace will end at 2:30 p.m. Handicap buses will be available. A limit of two people may accompany the handicapped person on the handicap bus.

Big Mac Shoreline Bike Tour


Location: Mackinaw City MI Mackinaw City MI

Big Mac Shoreline Fall Scenic Bike Tour
Download Application for Fall Bike Tour | Download the Route Map

Bicycle enthusiasts will once again be filling the area in September for a chance to pedal the area’s scenic routes and infamous Mackinac Bridge during Mackinaw City’s Annual Fall Shoreline Scenic Bike Tours. Riders from across the Midwest assemble at the North Western State Trailhead 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.

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; 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, Star Line Ferry, Paradise Lake Association, and the Mackinaw City Police.

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