What are our members doing post Wiggles ride on the 24th ? Having a drink on us ( and snacks ) on us while watching the finale of Le Tour !
Hey there!


We are excited to prepare for our 2nd Annual 9/11 Memorial Ride!
Date: 9/11/2022
Two ride options available: 50 and 30 miles

Other firm details will be coming in the next week, but the event kit is now available to order!

To order your 2022 9/11 Memorial Ride kit, follow this link below:

We chose to work with Pedal Mafia this year since many of you Naples Velo members already know your sizing. However, if you don’t know your size, there is a fit kit available at Naples Cyclery.

Kit store will close on 7/19, but don’t miss out!

Feel free to reach out with any questions!

More details coming soon but for those wanting the kit we have recently been informed by those at The Brotherhood Ride that their store is closing soon and I believe test kits are at Fit & Fuel.
Riding bikes is fun, and it’s even more fun when done with friends,….
Off to The Wiggles they go 🤩
With the rest break over the group heads to Fit & Fuel for post ride refreshments,….
Bottom line,…bikes are cool and on Saturdays we ride to Fort Myers Beach 😎
Treat yourself to Assos! Naples Velo members see Greg for 10% off your Assos purchase through July. Take advantage of 30% off Assos closeouts.
Just in, some club members were asking about these on Saturday's ride...
Photo dump from today’s ride,…enjoy !
30 seconds later this group was separated into the black & blue rides where there was no mercy on the black ride and I hear the blue had a few flats that shrunk the size of that group. Based on Strava it appears all had a good time 😃
The backstory is David & I have a friend that boasts about riding,….often & repeatedly. Hence David’s comment about killing it today only to hear said rider greet us with a “hey” as the group passed by. David’s sinister laugh was a sure fire signal that the black ride was going to be intense ! Never mind that I almost crashed out on a slow u turn while filming 🤷🏻‍♂️😆
Some of the fun on the Sanibel Causeway captured on my GoPro. Greg Pelican
Today’s ride was a good one from start to finish as we went to Sanibel and back. Hot,…yes. Tons of fun,….hell yes ! If you missed it you missed a good one but don’t fret as we will be do The Wiggles tomorrow ( per usual). Come join us and experience NaplesVelo at our finest, and then stay awhile as we hang at Fit & Fuel for coffee ( or beer 🤷🏻‍♂️😆). Good times are guaranteed !

Happy Thanksgiving from our annual champagne ride. Photo dump.


I’m told the 17th annual “champagne ride” is going to be a real humdinger,…not a Velo ride but a Naples tradition none the less. See ya there !

Photos from Naples Velo's post 11/19/2022

We like bikes, beer, and good times with good friends. All of that can be found at Fit & Fuel 7 days a week,…and even a bit more on Fridays !


It truly takes a village and we’re sure we’ve missed a bunch of people, but a big thank you to all of our members that step up to support and lead our rides. We 💙 You.


NaplesVelo happy hour at Fit & Fuel tonight 😃


How many of our members are riding some hills this Sunday ?

🚨🚨 A friendly reminder 🚨🚨

The Club’s annual meeting is this Thursday at South Street. Doors at 5:00.

And pictures from the start of today’s Hour of Power 😃


Thanks Ricky for the awesome video, it looks like everyone is really enjoying the ride as I see nothing but smiles 😃

I am speechless,….for years I’ve thought there should be a race scene somewhere here in SWFL. Now we have that opportunity to build such a scene ! Held at an amazing facility with food trucks and a festive atmosphere this is certain to draw some interest from others outside SWFL and we local cyclists (racers or spectators) should try to support this inaugural race to the fullest.

Sign up soon and we see ya out there !

Photos from Naples Velo's post 11/08/2022

Stay tuned lots of things coming your way including keeping a watchful eye on this corner that is covered in excessive sand in Pine Ridge Estates,….this sand blends into the road and is a high fall risk area. Beware !

The Annual Club Meeting is coming up at South Street on Thursday, Nov 17th where we get together to share our vision of the club as we enter a new season and vote on new board members. 😃

Fit & Fuel will be hosting weekly Friday happy hour starting on Nov 18th. Besides already great beer & food choices I’m told Louie is putting some together a little special for club members,…

The Horrible 100 is on Sunday Nov 20,…100 miles and 4500 ft of climbing. Who wants to do a road trip ? The van could hold 8 and could go up Saturday late afternoon/ early evening getting an air b&B as it’s 3+ hours away,…
(DM Griffin if interested)

Iron Joe Turkey Ride is a long standing tradition in these parts, Jeans Memorial ride is fast approaching and the Annual Velo Holiday Party too !

Did I miss anything ??? Yes !

Rides are going, more people are showing up,…be careful !!!

And,…if you see a new face, say hello. Blue rides are alive & well,…night rides not so much. We need a report from our friends out in East Naples too but we hear their rides are growing!

Putting people on bikes! Love to see it and happy to give back to the community!

We were too busy to take many pictures today in East Naples, but the adults and kids were so excited to get bikes, helmets, locks and lights! The adults will be able to get to work, the grocery store and laundry, and the kids will get to be kids! Thanks to all our volunteers, Naples Bicycle Tours, Bikes For Tykes, Seacrest Country Day School, Community School of Naples, Trek Bikes Florida, Cycle Shack, Island Bike Shop - Marco Island, Naples Velo, and everyone who donated bikes!! We have an awesome community. Every little bit you can do will help someone in need!

This morning’s photo dump,…and I might add that you a fine looking bunch 🤷🏻‍♂️🤩

Photos from Seacrest Country Day School's post 11/06/2022

Today we partnered with Naples Pathways Coalition and Seacrest Country Day School by contributing funds to help deliver bikes to community members in Harmony Shores that lost everything due to the hurricane.

We’re happy to give back to the community and hope you’ll consider helping with the next bike drive in Dec.


Team, we’re still looking for volunteers to be ride Marshals for the Iron Joe Turkey Ride. Anyone interested can contact Sundi @ [email protected] or 239-398-8069.

We’re looking for 2/3 people each for the 62, 40, 20, 10 & 5 mile rides.

This is a great time of year for our experienced riders to spend a day giving back 🙂

Thanks in advance 🦃 🚲
