Mackinac Island Bicycle and Pedestrian Safety Rules
HORSES HAVE THE RIGHT OF WAY - Please be prepared for very busy streets in the downtown , especially around the ferry boat docks . There are bikers , pedestrians , carriages , wagons and horses everywhere . Be especially cautious of horses at all times as it is difficult for them to stop quickly . Horses have the right of way in every situation !
BIKE PARKING - On downtown streets , park inside the white lines . Do not park bicycles on sidewalks or lock them to fixed objects . Burleys , tandems or bikes without kickstands must use off street parking .
WALK ON SIDEWALKS - Pedestrians need to walk on the sidewalk for their own safety . Please look for bikes and carriages before stepping into the street .
STAY TO THE RIGHT - All bike traffic should stay to the right side of the street , just like auto traffic .
NIGHT RIDING - Always use a light , primarily so others can see you coming . Use your phone ’ s flashlight as a last resort and never drink and ride . Call a horse drawn taxi instead , it ’ s more fun !
TRAIL RIDING - Use a map , stay on marked trails and ride at your own risk . Many trails and paths are lined by sharp dangerous cliffs . Helmets are strongly suggested .
