Biking on Mackinac Island

Mackinac Island is one of those rare places where biking is both a pleasure and, at times, a necessity! Famous for allowing no motorized vehicles on its shores, biking is one of the premier forms of transportation on the island. Rent a bike from one of the many rental facilities downtown or bring your own on the ferry for a small additional charge, and make your way around scenic M-185, which loops the entirety of the gorgeous little island. You can also rent fat tire bikes for sandy trails and tandem bikes for trips with that special someone!

The Island House Hotel on Mackinac Island offers a selection of bike rentals to choose from for those looking to cruise on Michigan’s only highway that prohibits motorized vehicles! There’s even more ground to cover, with over 70 miles of natural and paved trails to keep you occupied all day long.

With over 70 miles of natural and paved trails, the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island is the perfect place to get outdoors. You can rent bicycles down by the pool house or walk through the gardens and trails on the hotel property. Mackinac Island State Park, part of the Mackinac State Historic Parks, is a great place to bike on the island.

Mission Point Resort on the island has tandems, mountain bikes, cruisers, and 3- and 7-speed bike rentals by the hour or by the day. At Mission Point, they always ensure that you receive the best possible rental price, so if you bring your bike back early, you only pay for the time you use!
