Presented By: Evolution Cycling Club (501c3) benefitting The TURTLE Effect Foundation (501c3 pending)

Help us celebrate the inspiring life of our brother and friend, Theodore “TURTLE” Wilson. Lover of family, bikes, friends, teammates, good food and drink, and LIVING OUT LOUD -- TURTLE’s life was cut short in a bike accident in October 2020. He made us all better people for knowing him, was president of Evolution Cycling Club (EVO), and this EVO event celebrates his memory.

The TURTLE Effect Foundation (TEF) was established to honor his memory. It benefits two causes close to Turtle’s heart: underprivileged youth in Chicago, IL under the Gregor Mendel Scholarship and cycling athletes. Proceeds in excess of event expenses from registration and from the purchase of cycling jerseys and caps benefit TEF. In addition, @JavaCruiserMoCo is donating 10% of sales to TEF.
