Bike Safari – 21 and Older

June 11 6 to 10 p.m.$37 in advance / $42 at the gate (if not sold out) / $30 Designated Driver

Enjoy this evening of bicycles, beasts and beers as you ride through the Detroit Zoo while taking an after-hours look at your favorite animals. This event is exclusively for guests 21 and older; we are hosting a Family-Friendly Bike Safari on July 9!

Each Bike Safari ticket includes a commemorative T-shirt and admission to the Zoo where guests will take part in a 2-mile ride on our preplanned course featuring two 3-ounce beer samples along the way. The course wraps around the Zoo, passing a majority of animal habitats and includes locations to stop and enter the indoor viewing areas. Riders will conquer a variety of surfaces and experience a combination of uphill and downhill portions, as well as tight turns and flat stretches. Filtered-water stations will be located throughout the trail for hydration.

The course concludes at our post-ride party, located in the Zoo’s Main Picnic Grove. Riders will receive one complimentary post-ride beer upon arrival and have access to live music performed by Athens Creek, food for purchase and more.

Designated Driver (DD) tickets are available for $30, pricing includes Zoo admission and a commemorative T-shirt. DD ticket-holders are not permitted to consume alcohol at the event.

Guests must provide their own bike and helmet. Helmets are mandatory. All guests must complete a consent waiver. All guests must be on a bicycle. Tandem bikes, clip-in pedals, scooters, rollerblades and skateboards are prohibited.


All attendees must be 21 or older; photo ID is required.
