The DALMAC Fund could use a hand this year to continue providing grants that improve Michigan’s bicycling environment, expand bicycling, promote good will towards the bicycling community, and increase bicycle safety.

The fund normally receives half of the net income from DALMAC, lately around $50,000 per year. Unfortunately, COVID-19 forced DALMAC’s postponement into 2021. Consequently, the DALMAC Fund’s largest source of income evaporated.

With the help of some generous DALMAC riders who donated their refunds to the DALMAC fund, some individual donations, and memorial contributions, the fund now stands at a little over $14,000, a far cry from the usual $50,000 that is awarded throughout the state.

Please consider helping to make bicycling better in Michigan.

DALMAC 2020

About DALMAC

Little did then-state Rep. Dick Allen know that an upstart ride in 1971 from Michigan’s capitol to the Mackinac Bridge would evolve into one of the state’s longest-running multi-day bike tours.

2020 is the 50th Dick Allen Lansing to MACkinaw Bicycle Tour! The DALMAC is Michigan’s annual, fully supported, epic end-of-summer bicycle camping tour. Routes wind northward from Michigan State University on country roads and through quaint small towns, ending in historic and beautiful Mackinaw City.

Whether you are new to cycling or an old hand, there are adventures to be had, friendships to be made, and hills to climb.

DALMAC is one of the oldest, lowest cost, all-volunteer-run bicycling tours in the country, celebrating its 50th year in 2020. DALMAC is about the fun of bicycling and sharing the roads! DALMAC originated in 1971 when former state Rep. Dick Allen challenged his friends, colleagues, and constituents to “ride all the way to the bridge” to prove that bikes and cars could share Michigan roads safely. DALMAC seeks to develop an awareness of bicyclists and their needs among the citizens of Michigan, to promote bicycling as a healthy means of transportation and recreation, and to encourage wider use of bicycles. DALMAC is organized and staffed by volunteers of the Lansing-based Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA).

Award Winning!
DALMAC was honored as the recipient of the Govenor’s Fitness Awards, Govenor’s Council Extraordinary Event Award.

DALMAC Fund
Established in 1975, has granted over $1.5 million to promote bicycling in Michigan.  For more info visit this website.

DALMAC is an all-volunteer event staffed by members of the Tri-County Bicycle Association (TCBA) of Lansing, MI.
