Bicycle Season Returns to Mackinac Island


Two-wheel transportation is back for Mackinac Island students. The snow is melted, the ice is off Lake Huron, and the ferry is running, although a winter parking sign remains in the schoolyard adding a contrast to bicycle travel. Slowly Island residents are tucking away snowmobiles, their main source of winter transportation, as the chance of a return of winter fades with each passing day. Getting set to bike home after class Wednesday, March 24, are (from left) ninth grade student Dillon DeLoof, eighth grade class member Paul Wandrie, Jr., sophomore Caleb Kolatski, and eighth grade student Amelia Roe.
