Around 3,000 Bicyclists Expected for Zoo-De-Mackinac Tour
It will be a busy weekend in Emmet County, with around 3,000 bicyclists coming from all over the country for the Zoo-De-Mackinac Bike Tour. The ride begins around 8:00 a.m., Saturday, at the Zoo Bar at Boyne Highlands, in Harbor Springs. 51 miles later, the bikers will arrive in Mackinaw City. Hotels at the start and finish point are nearly full, and businesses along the way will be busy, also. The organizer of the event says this will be the biggest year, yet. 9&10's Christina Vecchioni and photojournalist Aaron Smith have more details on the local impact.
