Saturday (continued)

We changed to more casual clothes and rented bicycles from the golf shop. Linda hadn't been sure about the 8 mile ride around the Island, but it was mostly flat and we rode at a leisurely pace. We stopped many times for photos and for cold drinks at the Cannonball Inn on the back of the Island. 

I had a fall while walking on rocks with wet shoes during one of the stops. My leg was scrapped pretty badly, but bicycling the rest of the way around Mackinac Island kept the leg from stiffening up. It was still tender three weeks later.

Near the end of the ride, we climbed the new stairway up to Arch Rock - approximately 240 steps.
