August 1, 2022

ROYAL OAK, Mich., 

Grab your helmets and roll on over to the Detroit Zoo for an evening of fun at the wildest place in town.

From 6 to 9 p.m. Friday, Aug. 12, the Detroit Zoological Society (DZS) will host Bike Safari, presented by Michigan Educational Credit Union, an after-hours bike tour through the Zoo for guests of all ages. On a trail featuring a variety of surfaces and uphill and downhill portions, the Zoo will offer a slew of activities, including education stations, habitat chats, discounted carousel rides and much more.

New this year, Bike Safari guests will be able to park their bikes and explore Dinosauria, an immersive walk-through experience featuring 29 life-like animatronic dinosaurs.

Bike Safari allows guests to explore the Zoo’s 125 acres like never before,” said Randi Hamilton, vice president of guest services, communications and marketing for the DZS. “Not only is this a fun, family-friendly bike ride, but ticket sales directly support the DZS mission of providing excellent animal care and protecting the environment. Biking is a sustainable method of transportation that we are thrilled to support.”

Guests must provide their own bike and helmet when attending Bike Safari. Motorized bicycles and foot traffic will not be permitted, though Electric Convenience Vehicles will be available for rent. All guests must wear a bike helmet while riding and complete a consent waiver prior to participation.

Tickets to Bike Safari are $28 per adult and $24 per child or senior. For DZS members, tickets are $23 per adult and $19 per child or senior. To purchase tickets and learn more, visit detroitzoo.org/events.
