Fall Frenzy/Biketemberfest Event Details

The Basic Package Includes:
"HIGHLANDS TO THE HARBOR" BIKE RIDE
This incredible ride on Saturday is approximately 30 miles in length, starting and ending at Boyne Highlands Resort. We will ride the spectacular "Little Traverse Wheelway" following along the shoreline of Lake Michigan. We start out with a few rolling forested miles as we leave Boyne Highlands and travel to the Little Traverse Wheelway. Watch The Video

Once we pick up the paved bike path, the terrain is level as it mostly follows a centuries old railroad grade. You will be overwhelmed by breathtaking views of Little Traverse Bay and Lake Michigan from various points along the route. Highlights include the sugar sand beach at Petoskey State Park, the historic Victorian cottages of Bayview, the Gaslight district of downtown Petoskey, the scenic Bear River trail, Magnus Park, Tunnels of Trees, and many other memorable sights too numerous to mention. We will stop for a lunch at our turnaround point in the Village of Bay Harbor to have a leisurely group lunch and swap stories, and then take in more of the same spectacular sights in the reverse journey back to Boyne Highlands. This is not a race!!! Instead it is a collection of outdoor enthusiasts who want to enjoy a little physical exercise together in one of the most beautiful areas in the state of Michigan. This event is a shorter, relaxed version of our spring ride, with 600 participants vs 4,000 and minimal planning. The terrain is flat and encompasses about three hours of actual riding time. We will have options available to expand the mileage to 60+ miles for those that are interested in a longer ride. Watch The Little Traverse Wheelway video on YouTube!

MOUNTAIN TOP HAPPY HOUR
A Saturday early evening chairlift ride to the top of Boyne Highlands, to partake in a "happy hour" featuring your favorite libations, acoustical guitarist, and incredible views of Lake Michigan. Picture yourself on top of Boyne Highlands, on a perfect late fall afternoon, sipping a cocktail, listening to a rendition of great acoustical music, surrounded by 800 fun loving new friends!!! Would you rather be anywhere else?

FRIDAY & SATURDAY NIGHT PARTIES
The Zoo Bar at Boyne Highlands will be rocking with live entertainment by Remedy for our private parties on both Friday & Saturday nights. Same great parties the Zoo-De-Mack & Social Connection crew are known for throwing for the past 20+ years! The walk-out patio of the Zoo bar will host an evening bonfire so you can celebrate good times under the stars!

CHAIRLIFT RIDES
See Michigan's most brilliant color changes from atop the mountain at Boyne Highlands. Take the chairlifts up to create your own picnic, explore the hiking trails, or just chill out and enjoy the view.

CHAIRLIFT BIKING
Boyne Highlands will have their chairlift running and bike park open for our use. Put your bike on the chairlift and catch a ride to the top of Boyne Highlands for spectacular views of Lake Michigan and Little Traverse Bay. There are scenic trails through the woods for inexperienced riders, and hardcore trails with banked turns, heart-stopping jumps and narrow passages for the adventurous rider. This summer we teamed up with Boyne to create a scenic downhill bike path that starts with a chairlift ride up, winds you downhill through a variety of picturesque hardwood forests, and ends up back at the bottom of the chairlift so you can ride it again and again. Our group will be the first to ride this new trail!!! The chairlift will be open for biking Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning.

CHAIRLIFT HIKING
Take the chairlift up for the view, and take a leisurely hike down the ski slopes or one of the many scenic cross country ski trails through picturesque hardwood forests. The chairlift will be open for hiking Friday night, Saturday and Sunday morning.

COMLIMENTARY PAR 3 GOLFING
In addition to their world class par 72 Golf courses, as a Fall Frenzy guest you can enjoy complimentary golf on the 9-Hole Par 3 Executive course walking distance from the Main Lodge. Check in with the Activity Center. Clubs not included.
