Mackinac Island

We took our bikes on the Ferry to Mackinac Island.  It was really a trip – there were thousands of bikes on the Island.  Many of these bikes were being ridden by people who looked like they hadn’t been on a bicycle in many, many years.  We almost got run over several times by people who weren’t looking where they were going!  You can just see all of the bikes parked in the bottom of this photo. 

Resized Mackinac Island 002

There are no cars allowed on the Island so we did enjoy getting out of town and riding on the road that goes around the Island.  It was a nice, relatively flat ride but we did end up with a bit of head wind on the last mile or two.  We have taken up a new (and very bad) tradition of getting ice cream after a bike ride which we got from our friend’s The Murphy’s in Ann Arbor!

  1. What a pretty picture! Mackinac Island is on my list of places I’d like to visit. Maybe we’ll take a long driving vacation one of these days and ferry over to the island.

  2. Ice cream but no fudge?!

    I should have warned you to head into the wind when you ride around the island then on the end of the trip the wind is *with you*…sorry 🙂

    No run-ins with the horses? I usually come pretty close to colliding with at least one horse on the Island! 🙂
