Frankfort Michigan – A Bike Friendly Town

Recumbent bike rentals

Recumbent bike rentals

Last week we took a break from the city and spent a week up north in Michigan near the towns of Frankfort, Beulah, and Bear Lake. All three are great little Michigan lake towns. Frankfort is an especially bike-friendly lake-front town. The fact that it is  located on one end of the Betsie Valley Trail certainly helps the overall biking feel of the town, but it also helps that the trail continues through town, along the marina and behind the shops, all the way to the beach meaning that cyclists old and young feel safe riding around Frankfort. One sees bike racks all throughout downtown. The public restrooms along the trail as well as inside city hall let you know that this small Lake Michigan harbor town is a tourist-friendly and bike-friendly sort of place.

If you happen to head up to Frankfort without your own bike, or you want to ride something different, you can rent a bike from a friendly rental spot called Pedal Perfection on 2nd Street, near the Harbor Lights Resort. They rent a variety of bikes – you’ll find something for everyone.
