We rented a mountain bike and a tandem and rode around the island a couple of hours with no serious issues. The front tire rubbed slightly on the tandem which was a bit annoying, but, survivable. The attendant was kind of gruff is why we docked a star, I've met up with worse though and kinda get that long days... More

The Mackinac Island Bike Ride is the highlight for our whole trip to the island and the Mackinac Island Bike Rental makes it all possible. The service is great and friendly. No deposit is required , pay by the hour, a free water is included along with a basket on the front of the bike and helmets if you would... More

This was the first time ever renting bikes. The bikes we rented were pretty nice. We had a wonderful ride around the island and the bikes got us there and back with no problems. I would recommend renting from this place. Just a small tip, when you first get on the island there is a bike shop for this place...I... More

The bikes are nice. It is a busy place. They are fast at getting you on the road. The bikes were nice and very comfortable. It is not cheap. My family of 5 rode for just under 3 hours and it was $115. The customer service was ok for us, but the man next to us in line was not... More

Had an issue with my mobility scooter tire and stopped at the Bike Barn. They are the only place that will do any repairs. Explained my issue and the young man, mechanic, said not problem and fixed my problem. Need a new tire and tube, he got one sent over from main land and I was on my way. Watching... More

Based upon reading favorable reviews on TA and yelp of Mackinac Island Bike Shop and not so favorable reviews of 3 other bike shops, we decided upon MIBS. This shop is located on Main St. - on the waterside, look for the hanging upside down bikes with flowers in their baskets. Transaction and bike fitting was easy and fast. It... More

Whether you ride for 3 or 4 hours, the prices is the same at $24 per person. Our bikes were very comfy. My front brake needed some greasing, though. It was squeaky. The workers are not afraid to say hello and hand out their brochures. We looked at all of the bike shops because one place with cheaper prices had... More

Kevin went out of his way to make sure that we had bikes we needed for ourselves and granddaughters. Everyone else, from the initial contact to the return of the bikes were outstanding.

Enjoyed biking around Mackinaw Island. The only thing I didn't care for was is that we returned on bikes on time but stood in the line for 15 minutes because it was sooo slow and they charged us for the difference.

People who work their are very nice and biking around the island is a must do thing! It is so fun and me and my family go every year. The island is very beautiful and the bike trail goes all the way around the island, it's about 8 miles all the way around but it is so worth it! There... More
