Postponement of the 50th DALMAC to 2021 has raised many questions that are answered below. Riders who do not make a choice to defer or cancel by June 30th will have their registration automatically deferred to 2021.
If you haven’t made your 50th DALMAC registration choice, please do so by 6/30/20. Your options are:
- Defer your registration and purchases until DALMAC 2021
- Cancel your registration and donate your registration and purchase fees to The DALMAC Fund (less a cancellation fee of $25.00)
- Cancel your registration and request a refund of your registration and purchase fees (less a cancellation fee of $25.00)
To make your selection, click this link, then follow these steps:
- Sign into your Race Roster account
- Click on Edit Registration (blue button on right-hand side)
- Confirm your email, address and phone number are correct (update if needed and click Save).
- Click on Registration Questions (below the route name near top of screen)
- Select your option and click Save & Exit
DALMAC will continue the reduced $25 rider cancellation fee and no fee transfers between routes (when there are openings) through August 1, 2021. The cancellation and transfer fees will return to normal after the 50th DALMAC in 2021.
If conditions do not permit DALMAC to operate in September of 2021, DALMAC will be cancelled and all registration fees will be refunded in full to the registered riders at the time of cancellation. In the event of cancellation, all merchandise purchases will be refunded in full unless the merchandise has been ordered from the manufacturers. If merchandise has been ordered, it will be shipped to the riders at DALMAC’s expense.
I miss being able to ride with all of my friends, I’m sure you do too. Covid-19 has taken some of the fun out of bicycling.
Please don’t forget one of DALMAC’s primary purposes is to prove that bicyclists and motorists can share Michigan’s roads. Let’s keep riding and sharing the road in these difficult times!
Thank you for your continued support and understanding. We appreciate all of the riders, volunteers, organizations and businesses that make DALMAC possible.
The Questions and Answers below explain the changes we are making.
Stay safe, and enjoy the ride.
What will the cancellation fee be if I defer to my registration to 2021?
$25 if you cancel before August 1, 2021.
I’ve selected “cancel” on Race Roster, the DALMAC registration site. Can I change my choice to “defer”?
Yes. You can log into Race Roster any time before June 30th and change your selection.
What happens to the merchandise I ordered?
If you elected to defer to 2021, the merchandise you ordered will be distributed at check-in to the 2021 ride. If you requested a refund, your merchandise order will be cancelled and refunded.
Will the merchandise designs change?
The only change will be the year, to 2021.
I forgot to order a jersey. Can I order one?
Yes, when registration for 2021 opens you can log into Race Roster and order a jersey or any other merchandise.
Why is there a cancellation fee?
DALMAC incurs costs on behalf of riders. Insurance, equipment storage, webpage support, and advertising are some of the many ongoing costs. The cancellation fee helps us recover costs incurred on behalf of people who decide not to ride DALMAC.
Will the schools we stay at change?
We are not expecting any changes.
Can I change routes?
Yes, email the Registrar to request a different route, at Registrar@DALMAC.org
I’ve sent the Registrar a request to transfer to a different route. Where does my request stand?
The Registrar is keeping track of all requests, by date. They will be acted on first come, first served, when there are openings. We are expecting openings after June 30th. Transfer requests will be processed later this summer.
I signed up for Bubba’s tent service. What is happening with the tent service for the 4 Day West and the East routes?
Bubba has decided to get out to the tent service business. Bubba will continue to run his bicycle tours. We are looking for a replacement service.
When will registration re-open?
December 1st for Tri-County Bicycle Association members, January 1st for the public. You can join the Tri-County Bicycle Association at www.Biketcba.org
