Architect Kendall Dorman will launch a 300-mile bike ride in an effort to raise awareness about climate change and support Green For All’s work to protect our air and water while lifting Americans out of poverty.
“I’m really excited to participate in this year’s NYC-DC Climate Ride,” Kendall says. “It’s a great way for me to raise money for Green For All’s work to build an inclusive green economy. And all along the route, I’ll have a chance to increase awareness about climate change.”
Kendall has been riding bikes for all but about the first 5 years of his life. He has owned a Stingray, a department store cruiser, a Schwinn Continental, a few mountain bikes, two track bikes, and a plethora of road bikes. He has lived in Washington, D.C. since 1988 and has participated sporadically in Bike D.C. events with friends and his wife, JT Roy.
A former Category II cycling racer, Kendall says he regularly rides on the weekends in unsanctioned, unofficial, so-called races with riders that are typically younger, stronger and faster than him. And, he also likes to ride to work or to other destinations on roads, trails and/or paths.
He is a practicing Architect in Washington DC and his firm Wiebenson & Dorman Architects PC, strives to design buildings that are, as he believes bicycles are, friendlier to the environment. He serves proudly on the Board of the Washington Area Bicyclist Association, considers himself a diplomat of goodwill for cycling and believes that the bicycle is a legitimate and noble form of transportation.
