My wife and I are headed up to Macinac Island in a couple of weeks for our anniversary. While we won't be hitting any of the real fun trails *sniffle* I'd still like to take my bike up. I've got a few questions for other folks who've gone up there before.
-I was told at the local bike store that they treat the bikes badly on the ferry, throwing them in, scratching them up, etc. Is this true? It seems like a lot of money to have your bike thrown about.
-With the above in mind, would it be better to rent a bike for a day? We're not going hardcore trail riding or anything, just biking about the island. I dont know the costs between ferrying over a bike vs renting for one or two days.
-I keep hearing that bike theft is a issue up there...I know the basic safety bits (lock up, remove valuables, etc)....anyone have any issues with that?
