There's a long trail that ends in Mackinac City at a parking lot near Mackinac Crossings:

North Central State Trail - Gaylord to Mackinaw City

The trail follows M-23 for a while going south, so any hotel along 23 is likely to be just across the highway. I was passing through Mackinac earlier thus summer, stopped for lunch, and snuck in a 30-minute ride on the trail just because it was so convenient and I happened to have the bike along. The trail takes you right past Mill Creek Discovery Park, so you can combine a visit to a rebuilt, historic sawmill with a short bike ride.

I'm honestly not sure what to suggest on the UP side as far as bikes go. Are you spending the entire day? Visiting the Sault Locks would be in range. I'm not offhand aware of any bike trails in the Eastern UP.
