Can a couple with an average age of 59 years young ride a tandem bike from Kalamazoo, Michigan to the Mackinac Bridge to raise funds for Heritage Christian Academy?


Can they do it?  Can a couple with an average age of 59 years young ride a tandem bicycle from the HCA parking lot in Kalamazoo to the Mackinac Bridge?  We believe so!

God had other plans. Team Tandem has undergone a big change.  Mr. Hadley will be riding with HCA grad, Adrian Vermeulen, who willingly stepped in at the last minute to take Mrs.Hadley's place when she couldn't ride due to an injury. Mrs. Hadley will still be with Team Tandem but as a support driver along the route. We hope you will follow along with the daily journals by both riders on both HCA Facebook and

On June 12th -16th Randy Hadley and Adrian Vermeulen will be riding a tandem bike from HCA to the Mackinac Bridge, a 300 mile trip in 5 days (with alternate makeup days of Saturday and Sunday in case of storms).  

Our riding schedule is as follows:

  • Day 1: HCA to Comstock Park
  • Day 2: Comstock Park to Reed City
  • Day 3: Reed City to Houghton Lake
  • Day 4: Houghton Lake to Gaylord
  • Day 5: Gaylord to Mackinac Bridge

     Why are we doing this?  Because we love cycling and because we love our school -HCA!  We believe Heritage Christian Academy is a school worth re-building and we would like to raise funds to help make that happen. 

     We will be collecting pledge donations here and at school.  Your support would mean a lot to us and will be used to equip students to impact the world for Christ.  Be sure to come back here daily during our trip to see pictures and read about our adventures in the daily updates and how God is leading us.

     Watch two HCA eagles soar, um, I mean sore on one bike; no pain; no gain; Mackinac or bust!
