Download 2 Day Eat Map

96/122 Miles

The perfect road ride for DALMAC riders who only have Labor Day weekend days off school or work – this route begins in Grayling, so you’re already “up north” and overnights at Indian River before taking either a longer route through the Tunnel of Trees or straight up to Mackinaw City.

Saturday: to Inland Lakes High School (Indian River) – 54 Miles
2-East riders begin Saturday, heading northwest on tree-lined roads all the way to Inland Lakes High School in Indian River.

Sunday: to Mackinaw City High School – 42/68 Miles
Sunday provides riders with a choice: taking the direct route to the finish in Mackinaw City, 41 miles away, or following a 71-mile route crossing the Tip of the Mitt to Good Hart, where a fabulous lunch stop awaits. Riders then join the DALMAC riders from the West Routes riding through Michigan’s Tunnel of Trees, overlooking Lake Michigan, before finishing in Mackinaw City.
