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 🤷🏻‍♂️😆

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 !

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!

CCSO deputies saved the life of a 68-year-old bicyclist who suffered a heart attack yesterday by using an AED and performing CPR.

“The actions of these deputies exemplify the CCSO commitment to the preservation of life,” Sheriff Kevin Rambosk said.

Detective Scott Pepin was driving south on Airport-Pulling Road near Hawksridge Drive around noon when he saw the man fall off his electric bike onto the sidewalk. Detective Pepin pulled over and found the man on the ground with the ebike on top of him.

The man didn’t have a pulse and wasn’t breathing. Detective Pepin immediately began applying chest compressions.

Sgt. Natalie Ashby was driving by and stopped to assist with CPR. Around the same time Deputy Aidan Brennan arrived. Deputy Brennan removed his CCSO automated external defibrillator (AED) from his patrol car. He applied AED pads to the man and delivered rescue breaths, while Sgt. Ashby and Detective Pepin took turns administering chest compressions. Detective Cari DePasquale radioed for paramedics.

Deputies continued providing lifesaving measures until paramedics arrived and took over treatment.

Paramedics transported the man to a local hospital where he regained consciousness and was breathing on his own.

While the man was being transported, the deputies delivered his ebike and the groceries he was carrying to his residence located nearby.

Later, Detective Pepin stopped by the hospital to check on the man’s condition. He learned the man suffered a heart attack and was expected to survive.

Detective Pepin, Sgt. Ashby, Deputy Brennan, and Detective DePasquale have been nominated for a CCSO Life Saving Award. The award honors deputies who render life-sustaining rescue efforts to a person whose life is in immediate jeopardy.

Shown are Sgt. Natalie Ashby and Detective Scott Pepin.

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👍🤩👍

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 🤩

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 🤩🤩🤩

One of our most outgoing members, Tish Kelly, is always supplying us with great pictures and videos along with her welcoming smile. Now if she could have gotten that person next to her to turn around 😆
Thanks Tish !
