DALMAC 2017 Map

A map showing the four routes of the 2017 Dick Allen Lansing to Mackinaw Bicycle Tower. The four routes were named 5 Day East, 4 Day West, 5 Day West, and 5 Day West Century.

I created this map for fun to show the routes and elevation profiles for the various routes a cyclist could complete as part of the 2017 DALMAC bike tour.


The background Digital Elevation Model came from USGS Earth Explorer. The route data and elevation profiles were acquired from ridewithgps.com.

For more detailed information how I produced this map, please see the detailed project notes on my GitHub:
