Mackinaw City Pure Michigan

32nd Annual Zoo-De-Mack

May 22nd, 2021


The Zoo-de-Mack is a gathering of outdoor enthusiasts (2,500+ last year) 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 the 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 picturesque views of Lake Michigan from 400′ high bluffs.  We stop approximately half way, at a unique place called the Legs Inn in Cross Village for a leisurely lunch and to swap stories.  The ride continues on to Mackinaw City to the finish line and 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!

The Zoo-de-Mack 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.
