The Dick Allen Lansing to MACkinaw Bicycle Tour is

Michigan’s annual, fully-supported, epic end-of-summer

bicycle camping tour. Four routes wind northward through

Michigan’s countryside and quaint small towns, from East

Lansing (for the 4 and 5 day routes), Lake City (for the

3 UP route), and from Grayling (for the 2 East Route) to

northern destinations, ending in Mackinaw City, St. Ignace, or

Rudyard. Each route varies in distance providing just the right

challenge for all cyclists whether beginner or experienced,

relaxed paced or speedy.


DALMAC is one of the oldest all-volunteer-run tours in the United States, celebrating 47 years

of excellence, thus DALMAC is one of the lowest cost tours in

the nation.


DALMAC is about bicycling! DALMAC is about sharing

the roads! DALMAC originated in 1971 when former State

Representative Dick Allen challenged his colleagues and

constituents with a ‘ride all the way to the bridge’ to prove

that bikes and cars could share Michigan roads safely. The

objectives of DALMAC are 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 staffed by volunteers of the Tri-County Bicycle Association

(TCBA). If interested in volunteering, send an email to:

volunteer@dalmac.org.


Proceeds from DALMAC are shared between TCBA and the

DALMAC Fund. The DALMAC Fund contributes grants to

promote and improve bicycling throughout Michigan. More
