We had a great time riding bikes around the island. The perimeter tour lets you stop and enjoy the views of the lake as well as hike up to beautiful areas on the island. While parts were crowded it was never so bad that you couldn't get through. It is a little expensive but absolutely worth it!

Had a great time riding around the island. A bit too expensive (but comparable to other bike rentals there) for us. Each bike came with a bottle of water- nice touch! It was $98 for 2 HR 50 min for 4 people.

We got there right when they opened so there was no crowd. It was less than 5 minutes and we were off. I think my husband didn't like having a basket on his bike at first, but then was grateful to have a place to put things. The seats were big and comfy and the bike quality was excellent. We... More

No - I never learned how to ride a bicycle when I was younger. And my wife keeps bugging me to ride with her. But they rent three wheelers here, and I was happy as a clam to go on the eight mile ride around the island. Only $9 an hour and everyone was happy.

We grabbed bikes around 9:30am right when we arrived as we heard the pickings get slim later. They were so efficient I can't get that across enough. We got a "ticket" marking our check out time and told to walk a few feet to a waiting point. Except literally as we walked those few feet we see our bikes being... More

We rented our bikes from Mackinac Bikes, past the ones immediately off the ferry & then a short way to the right. these were good because you didn't have to commit to half/full day. You could take it back when you wanted & would be charged by the minute & not full hours. Comfortable bikes although the chain came off... More

Located right off the farry. Walk right up and they get the bike ready for you and adjust the seat. Off you go. When you get back your rate is prorated. It took us about 2 hours to get around the island and the rate is prorated

Unless you are up for a long hike, a bike is the best way to see the island. This company had friendly, efficient staff and nice 7 speed bikes. Baskets and a bottle of water are included. Should plan on at least a 4 hour rental to explore the island. All of the bike shops seemed to have about the... More

Bikes were in very good condition and the service was excellent. They only charge for the actual time you use it and price isn't too bad.

Best place to rent. Very quick rentals. They match the bike type with the person. They have baskets and water. The bikes are in great shape. Pleasant and gracious staff. We rented someplace else the prior day and the bikes weren't great. Highly recommend. Right across from Bicycle Inn and next to Sheplers.
