In Honor of Sean Tyrrell

“On October 18th, 2014, a memorial bike ride in honor of my husband, Shawn Tyrrell, was held in Gwinnet County, Georgia, by members of his bike club, the Gwinnett Touring Club (GTC). Shawn was an active member of the club, and toured with them both in Georgia and in Europe. Shawn passed away from a heart attack in 2013. Members of his club wanted to honor him by holding a group ride, and I was asked to pick a charity. I had heard of Pedals for Progress from my sister, who lives in West Orange, New Jersey, and the great work that this organization provides. Since Pedals for Progress is a group that combines our love of cycling with a global commitment to sustainable programs in developing countries, it was the perfect charity to choose. We had a beautiful day for the ride, and were provided with support along the route by club members, and even a police escort! We look forward to holding this event annually in the future.”
