DALMAC Update

Registration for DALMAC 2021, the 50th DALMAC, will begin on February 1st for Tri-County Bicycle Association members on the TCBA website, and on February 15th for the general public on the DALMAC website.  We hope you will join us for the 50th DALMAC.

DALMAC is approximately 75% full thanks to everyone who registered for DALMAC in 2020 and deferred their registration to 2021. If you deferred your registration, you are good to go but please log into your account after registration opens and double check your swag order. We are adding the “I Won DALMAC” jersey to the store. Of course, we know, DALMAC isn’t a race–but, how many people have asked you about “the race” –why not have some fun with it. ☺

If you are registered for DALMAC 2021 and find you are unable to ride, please contact the DALMAC Registrar at Registrar@DALMAC.org and request a refund.  No refunds will be given after August 1, 2021.  We are continuing the reduced cancellation fee of $25 in light of COVID-19.  Should DALMAC be canceled because of COVID-19, riders will not be charged a refund fee.

For our riders who like numbers, here are the openings:

54           5 Day West
89           5 Day East
97           4 Day West
10           Quint Century

DALMAC 2021

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.

2021 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 2021. 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.
