Event description

Description

The Idlewild “Jazz” Bike Ride is a FREE event that allows participants to enjoy a leisure ride in the naturally beautiful Manistee National Forest while learning about this historically significant town. It’s more than a bike ride. It’s a gathering. We ride to respect what was, appreciate what is, and imagine what could be.

Most of all, we have fun. Each year, the organizers strive to offer a unique experience. Join the friends of Jazzmin House and see Idlewild up close and through the personal experiences of Idlewilders.

After the ride we will enjoy a cookout "day party" at Paradise Lake.


Below are more details, infor for lodging and options for fitness cyclists interested challenging themselves.
