Memorial Bike Ride for Kadian, Son of City Bikes CEO, This Sunday

From a press release:

City Bikes, a local independent bicycle retailer with locations in DC’s Adams Morgan and Capitol Hill neighborhoods as well as in Chevy Chase, Maryland suffered a tragic loss this past Wednesday, July 25th. CEO Debora Harding’s son Kadian was killed while riding his bicycle with his father Thomas Harding near their home in the United Kingdom when he was struck head-on by a Sprinter van. He was 14 years old.

The City Bikes family, along with the DC cycling community, will ride in Kadian’s honor this Sunday, July 29th at 7pm from the flagship location at 2501 Champlain Street NW in Adams
. Following the ride at 8:30pm, there will be a candlelight vigil at Unity Park across the street from City Bikes in Adams Morgan.

Kadian Harding was an avid cyclist and lover of technology. He lent a hand at his mother’s bike shop during his school vacations for years, always wanting to help out with IT needs. At the time of his death, Kadian was preparing to install a network of almost 30 new computers at all three of City Bikes’ locations. Being a lover of all things Apple, Kadian was very excited to have been offered an opportunity to train at the Apple Business Center in the coming months.

Kadian will be remembered as a brilliant, articulate, and kind young man. His oft-occurring smile can still be felt within the walls of all three City Bikes shops, especially the Capitol Hill location, which Kadian helped to build.

The ride will first visit Georgetown and DC’s only Apple retail store, then on around the monuments to City Bikes’ Capitol Hill shop on Barracks Row. The ride will end back in Adams Morgan at Unity Park, across the street from City Bikes, for the candlelight vigil.

In order to best honor Kadian’s memory, the use of helmets and lights will be required. Additionally, all participants will be required to follow the standard rules of the road and follow the directions of the ride marshals at all times.

To celebrate Air Quality Awareness Week (May 6-10, 2024), Clean Air Partners is working with A Few Cool Hardware Stores to exchange DC, Maryland and Virginia residents’ gas-powered lawnmowers, trimmers, and leaf blowers at select Ace Hardware locations in the region. DMV residents who turn in their gas-powered lawn tools will receive a FREE Ego Power+ replacement including batteries and chargers, while supplies last.

Compared to gas, electric lawn equipment can reduce emissions, noise pollution, health risks and maintenance costs and time. The program aims to remove about a hundred gas-powered polluting tools from yards in the greater Baltimore-Washington region.

The exchanges will take place the weekends of May 17-19, 2024, and May 31-June 2, 2024, at A Few Cool Hardware Stores network of employee-owned Ace Hardware stores in the DC and Baltimore metro areas.
