Welcome to Our Online Community!

Naples Velo is the longest running bicycle club in Southwest Florida.

In 1994, Naples Velo members decided to register as a team with the United States Cycling Federation. These core members not only raced as a team, but went on to host races, plan rides, and events and set the seeds for the club as it now stands today.

Safer Cycling in SWFL

The News-Press Covers cycling safety in Southwest Florida. 

To read more about this story click on the link below.  

Rich Crouse spotted a white sedan barreling toward him on a recent Saturday morning in Fort Myers Beach.

I'm going to die, he thought.

The driver had already weaved in and out of a line of 10 cyclists, downing other riders coming from Naples this month. Crouse pedaled even closer to the concrete barrier on the shoulder. The 56-year-old couldn't fathom why the car wasn't stopping or moving to an open lane.

He bounced from the hood as the 84-year-old driver's car shoved him along the pavement before braking.

An 84-year-old driver who struck and injured three cyclists Saturday morning on Fort Myers Beach told an investigator he was on his way to a class to learn to play bridge and couldn't avoid hitting the riders, a report said.

Lee Lester Luenser, of Fort Myers Beach, was cited for careless driving and operating a vehicle with an expired tag, reports say. He was not arrested.

Naples crash spurs change, enforcement and signage

Click on the headline to read more

Chuck Kelly led a pack of dozens of cyclists pedaling north on Crayton Road through a Naples neighborhood.

A cloudy morning in late January, the temperature hovered below 70 degrees. The 57-year-old lawyer pulled at a fast clip, his strong thighs bringing the speed to around 24 mph. The speed limit on this stretch is 30. He spotted a green light and moved into the left-turn lane.

Kelly was just about to turn when Mitch Norgart, a few riders behind, heard frantic shouting from the rear of the group: Car back! Car back!

SWFL cyclists face injury, death on dangerous roads

Steven Von Williamsen reached for wife Sarah's hand as the pair pedaled past royal palm trees along McGregor Boulevard. Doves cooed, welcoming a golden dusk. She on a lime-green three-speed, he on a customized red bicycle, they headed toward downtown Fort Myers with 200 other riders, quiet but for the clicking of spokes and gears as part of last month's Ride of Silence — an international event to remember cyclists who have been killed or injured.
