Please join me, Randa Stern, in a celebration of Paul Stern’s life.

Paul completed this year’s ODRAM event, 150 miles, in 10 hours and 1 minute.  Not too shabby for an 80 year old man.  He was passionate about biking, me, about everything he did.

He loved and lived passionately.  Last Wednesday, he started his second DALMAC ride and with less than 6 miles to go on the second day, he had a catastrophic accident (no one else was involved) and did not survive.

We will be having a celebration of life/ice cream social (because ice cream was his favorite food) at 2:00 PM on September 19th at River Church, 8393 E. Holly Road, Holly, MI.  You are all welcome to come.  DALMAC riders are invited to wear their DALMAC jerseys.  Please text your RSVP to (248) 245-3067, if you plan to attend.  Contributions in memory of Paul can be made to River View Church.  Thank you.  Randa Stern

The Dick Allen Lansing to MACkinaw
 is Michigan’s Epic Bicycle Tour features beautiful scenery, small lakes and big lakes, the Tunnel of Trees, and a well-deserved sense of accomplishment!


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 party finish in Mackinaw City. Each route varies in distance providing just the right challenge for all cyclists.


Riders look forward to finding and re-visiting favorite breweries, ice cream shops, beaches, scenic venues, lunch stops, stores, rest stops, and host town venues that add to the revenue of communities, organizations, churches, convenience stores, and small businesses. Riders enjoy many lesser traveled roadways, and Michigan's varied scenery. Michigan's terrain is mostly rolling, but at least one hill provides a long-talked-about challenge.


All routes finish by 6 p.m. on Sunday evening. Some riders are met by family or friends for the return trip, while others choose to pre-purchase a ticket to load their bicycles on the baggage trucks and return to their original departure point on chartered buses.


Many riders return year after year to enjoy DALMAC and we are so glad that you do!
