Mike Harding was one of the Hills R Us leaders and until early 2013 a regular on the Hills R Us rides. He was also Western Wheelers club President in 1984, Sequoia Chair 1975–1978, was active in bike advocacy in San Mateo County and completed the Davis Double Century 30 times!
He started to slow down in 2013, to the extent that he felt he had to give up riding Hills R Us. Unfortunately, he was subsequently diagnosed with cancer and it got the better of him. He passed away Saturday December 14, 2013.
We’ll remember him as a soft-spoken yet firm gentleman with his impeccable handlebar mustache and his trusty white Kestrel—one of the first production carbon road bikes.
