DALMAC

The Dick Allen Lansing to MACkinaw Bicycle Tour is Michigan’s annual epic end-of-summer bicycle camping tour.

Multiple routes wind northward through the countryside and quaint small towns, from East Lansing (4 and 5 day routes), Gladwin (3 East route), Grayling (2 East route), and Wolverine (2 Trail route), culminating with a fun finish in Mackinaw City. Each route varies in distance providing just the right challenge for all cyclists.

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.

I will be doing the 4 day west quad century rides.
