Could it be a fluke or are the smaller groups of summertime upon us.

Today’s Hour of Power started with 6 but ended with 2,…
Thanks Phil for showing up and leading a great ride !
What we missed yesterday morning was certainly made up with today’s showing. Per usual Paul gave a nice & informative pre-ride talk before the black, blue & green rides set out this morning.
Thanks to one & all that make our club so special 🤩
*** No Velo Ride Offerings Sat 4th June 22***

Folks , we know you all value safety on our rides !

Due to the inclement weather that's forecast over next 24- 36 hours or so, there will be no Velo ride offerings tomorrow Sat 4th June.

Please be safe out there 🙏
The Captain Inspector would like to wish you all a Happy World Bicycle Day!
Rolling closely behind comes the Blue Ride,….

What a great day to go for a bike ride 🤩🤩🤩
Another beautiful day as the black ride charges towards the Wiggles
Bikes are cool,…exhibit “A”…
Forgive for omitting any snappy commentary as my day has been a whirlwind and here is my photo dump from the Velo Lot, warming up, stops with Black Ride and gathering at the bottom of the FMB Bridge.
Enjoy 😊
Can you all guess who some of these riders are from their latter day retro photos ..... ⁉️

Dont forget ...This coming Monday 30th May 2022 for Memorial Day :

We are putting on a Monday Memorial Day "Retro Rides" that all start at 7am in publix car park :

There will be # 3 rides on offer - Yayy 😁

Black ride - 25-28mph Sanibel and back, breakaways starting southbound at Lovers Key, 65 miles.

Green Ride # 1 : Extended Recovery-> 22mph FGCU loop and back, no break aways, 45 miles.

Green Ride # 2 : Regular Monday Recovery -> 20mph, Pelican Bay loops, 20 miles

Afterwards Coffee and scones provided by Naples Velo at Fit & Fuel (around 9:30a) 🙌.

We hope to see you all there in your Retro gear ! ( even if you don't have any , your still more than welcome along !).
Today we share photos from 2 different members as Erik Keller & Justin Bolde have both submitted pictures of smiling faces riding down the road. And what a great sight to see William Percival out on the road !
This weekend is going to be awesome,…come on out & ride your bike with us. You’ll be glad you did !!

Erik Keller is one of Naples Velo founding members, and he too supplies us with some great pictures. Today his camera found some of our most distinguished members,….which leads me to wonder why Phil, Joe, & Paul never made it into the world of male modeling or dare I say the movies. Looking good gentlemen 🤩🤩🤩

East Naples Rides 📣

All three Naples Velo Lely Starbucks rides, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday start at 7:30 am in the summer. The ride descriptions on the website are generally accurate, however they are all Green rides (18-22 mph) in the summer. The ridership has been reduced due to seasonal migration, however a few full-time residents remain. If you haven’t ridden one of these rides, give them a chance, we’d like to see you on a ride this summer or in the fall. During season we have Green and Blue rides from 35 -45 miles on Monday and Wednesday, and a 15-18 mph 25 mile ride on Fridays.

Some sights from around today’s NaplesVelo ride where there was little wind and plenty of humidity 🤷🏻‍♂️🙂

Last Tuesday there were 6 riders at the start of The Hour of Power,….today I counted 10 !
Brisk & spirited it was a good workout for everyone there 😃

Photo dump from today’s Wiggles and some random thoughts from the coffee shop,…..

Once the group split at the extension, today’s three stars were BQ, Phillip, & Michael ( in no particular order ) as they did all of the heavy lifting until we arrived back in F&F.

Michael thinks we should have a mascot, and we are currently accepting ideas for future consideration 🤔🤷🏻‍♂️😆

NaplesVelo water bottles,…..
We should have NV water bottles to be given out to our members and sold to those visiting from out of town 😃💡

Also Michael firmly endorses the F&F breakfast burrito with the mid morning beer👍🤩👍

Cycling is better when done with friends and judging by all the smiles seen here on the blue ride just proves that point 😃

Thank you Fox 4 for covering last evening's Ride of Silence.

Thank you, Cristin Madden, for your willingness to share your story, and thank you to the 50+ people who showed up to ride and show support for the men, women, and children whose lives have been cut short while riding bikes. Please stop distracted and aggressive driving. We can all safely share the road if everyone does their part.

Before we do anything with Mom we ride our bikes,….Happy Mother’s Day !

Photos from Naples Velo's post 05/07/2022

Photo dump from today’s FMB Bridge ride where Julian & Bill addressed the club at 6:55am as to organize the black & blue rides with the wind being the big wild card today.
Windy days minimize hiding spots and one’s flaws are easily exposed hence the black ride was shredded with only a select few surviving the front. Those disconnected formed smaller groups and I’m certain the blue ride picked up some as well. In the end it was extremely tough but also extremely satisfying.

Thanks to our ride leaders and to all of our members for making this such an outstanding day on the bike !

Let’s start here,…
The flag at Vanderbilt Beach tells the story of how today is going to go. Challenging might be the right word.
