Reminder - No "E" Bikes On Mackinac IslandFri, 23 Apr 2021 17:00:14 EDT
The Mackinac Island Police Department would like to remind visitors, residents, employers and employees that Electric Bicycles are prohibited on the island with the exception of those used as mobility devices for those with mobility disabilities as outlined in the Americans with Disabilities Act.
Officials say being a top tourist destination in the state from April to November, even in the midst of the COVID pandemic, police are obligated to provide a safe environment for visitors and residents whose primary modes of transportation are walking and biking.
They say the presence of an ever-growing number of EBikes on the island precludes police from providing the safe and enjoyable experience that visitors and residents expect.
