“Live Out Loud Ride” Coming Soon

COS Racing invites all to an upcoming event hosted by COS Racing teammate Gwenn.

On October 16th, Gwenn is hosting a MTB and gravel ride in memory of her late husband Theodore “Turtle” Wilson who passed away in late 2020 while riding in Palmer Park.  Turtle was an avid competitive mountain biker, cyclist, USA Cycling official, and US Air Force Academy graduate.

The “LIVE OUT LOUD Memorial Ride ” will take place at Greenland Open Space. Routes include an easy-paced 10-mile single-track ride (MTB), a moderately-paced 32-mile gravel ride, a 3-mile walk option, and a make-your-own adventure ride of your choosing.

All proceeds will support the TURTLE Effect Foundation (a 501c(3) non-profit) that provides scholarships to talented cyclists in Turtle’s name and supports young people seeking admission to the US Air Force Academy.

COS Racing’s charter is to support bike racing in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and elsewhere and this event and Gwenn’s efforts align with those priorities. Please join us on October 16, 2022.
