The DALMAC (Dick Allen Lansing to Mackinaw) Bike Ride takes place every year (since 1970) the week leading up to Labor Day. Approximately 1,300+ cyclists participate in this annual cycling event, with the majority selecting one of 4 different routes (which take either 4 or 5 days to complete) that start at Michigan State University and end at the Mackinaw City High School or across the bridge in Saint Ignace.

This was the 5th year that Glenda completed one of these rides, while this was the 1st year that John signed up for this adventure! He was the only rookie in our 5 person group! So what happened? Day 1, we pedaled 71 miles, stopping in Alma for lunch and ending in Vesteburg. We started the day with lots of energy and overall had a fairly uneventful day, until John’s 1st night camping in 35+ years! I (John) didn’t find it too easy to ‘fit’ in my mummy type sleeping bag, but did appreciate how easy it is to roll out of bed! Day 2, was our longest day (74 miles) ending in McBain while we dealt with head winds part of the day ( that’s me on the grassy slope recovering!) while that night temperatures dropped to 36 degrees! At 5.30 AM, we were seen sipping coffee in the school cafeteria! Day 3 consisted of a lot of rolling hills on our way to Elk Rapids and I earned the nickname

‘Bear!’ (That’s another story!) and we enjoyed dinner by the lake. Day 4, took us to Petoskey via the Charlevoix hills, which required all our gears to climb (our Tour de France!). Then finally Day 5, we arrived in Mackinaw City via Harbor Springs and the tunnel of trees, with pizza and refreshments waiting! Overall, we had tons of fun along the way and for some of us ‘a once in a lifetime experience’!

stir in the frosting until well blended. Melt chocolate coating in a glass bowl in the microwave, or in a metal bowl over a pan of simmering water, stirring occasionally until smooth. Use a melon baller or small scoop to form balls of the chocolate cake mixture. Dip the balls in chocolate using a toothpick or fork to hold them. Place on waxed paper to set. Decorate cake balls once set, as small pumpkins.
