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

Gorgeous scenery, varied terrain, and amazing vistas greet DALMAC riders on every route. This family-friendly, all-ages, supported bike tour is a must-do for any bicyclist, whether beginner or experienced, relaxed paced or speedy.

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 bridge photo op and 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.

The event provides an appreciated source of revenue to small businesses and community groups all along each route. Riders look forward to re-visiting favorite lunch stops, stores, and rest stops that add to the revenue of organizations, churches, convenience stores, and small businesses.

Come join the fun!
