WOW, the 50th DALMAC is in the record books!

Great ride, really good riding weather (ok, just a little rain, but no scorching heat), fantastic camaraderie, everything but a tail wind the entire ride!

Thanks to all the volunteers who made DALMAC happen.  You made it a wonderful experience for everyone.

When I look at all the volunteer work that goes into DALMAC and ask, “Is it worth it?”  Then I look under the tab above marked “Photos”, and you’ll see the answer is a resounding Yes!

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.

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.
