Want to ride the Sleeping Bear Heritage Trail? Planning a daytrip to Glen Arbor but need a bike for the day? In addition to a brand new rental fleet of dual-purpose trail and road bikes to choose from, The Homestead also offers guests the best day and hourly rental prices around.

Here’s the skinny on The Homestead’s new and more conveniently located bike rental office location along with a look at the new bikes The Homestead now has available for adults and children.

One the great things about being located smack dab in the middle of the Sleeping Bear Dunes is that residents and guests at The Homestead are within biking distance to all the scenic attractions that make this the “Most Beautiful Place in America.”

For starter’s, there’s the Dune Climb, the Port Onieda Rural Historic District and Glen Haven Maritime Museum located just down the road. Just hop on the Sleeping Bear Dunes Heritage Trail and you can now see all these sights and more on a ride from Glen Arbor all the way to Empire—9.5 miles—on a woodsy, incredibly scenic yet totally paved bike path.

Keeping Up With Demand

To make it more convenient for anyone looking to hit the trail or head into Glen Arbor for sightseeing and shopping, The Homestead has now relocated the bike rental office — moving it from the Beach Club to the more centrally-located New Leaf Health & Fitness Center in The Village.

The Homestead has always offered its guests the best rates around for hourly- or day-rentals. And this year, the resort can also say with confidence that guests will not find a better, more comfortable or reliable rental bike fleet in Northern Michigan.
