We are already working on DALMAC 2022.

The new jersey design is still in the works.  We’ll announce it on the website as soon as it is ready.  Ok, you might also see it on Facebook! 😊

We are hoping Covid will only be seen in the rear-view mirror by DALMAC 2022.  Please get vaccinated if you haven’t already.  We’re getting tired of wearing face masks!

Changes for DALMAC 2022

  • DALMAC registration will open February 1st to Tri-County Bicycle Association members and February 15th to the public
  • Riders will be able to defer their registration only one time.  Anyone who has currently deferred their DALMAC registration is considered to have used their one-time deferral.
  • The registration deferral or cancelation fee will return to the normal $100.
  • Jerseys will be sold after DALMAC through the Primal and FloraVelo stores.  There will be no “swag only” clothing sales through the DALMAC registration site.
  • There will only be one bus departure from Mackinaw City High School to Grayling and Gladwin instead of two in 2022.  No change is planned for the bus departures to the MSU Pavilion.

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.

2022 is the 51st 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 51st year in 2022. 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.
