  1. Sean would not like this!!! Taking his dreams and fantasies and making a joke about them by deciding to ride every monday just because some people want to ride on monday nights still. Sean will impose karma thru mysterious ways

  2. I won't be so presumptuous and say what Sean would or wouldn't want, but I do think that he would be happy that this is carrying on. Sean always promoted rides and bicycle awareness- he wanted to get everyone on a bike. The more people that come out and enjoy a bike, the more conscious and empathetic they are towards cyclists on the street when they are behind the wheel of their car.
