Hi, Naples Velo members! My name is Ana and I am a novice cyclist looking for a ride buddy that would enjoy meeting a person that is open to mentoring, gentle coaching and shorter distance - slower rides with an enthusiastic and willing learner. My schedule is pretty flexible but my preference is early morning only because I'm still a little nervous around traffic. I purchased my bike Saturday, fell Sunday, got back on it Monday and today. I am committed!! I am also serious about building and perfecting my skill to go on my first group ride with all of you! If you are that person, please contact me via Naples Velo. Thanks so much!!
Did you find some riders to ride with.
Hi, Erik! No, not just yet. I have been
hello i am coming over from england in January to miss our bad weather, i would like to join up for rides, and learn the area.
where do you ride, i'm also new to the area and would like someone else to ride with.
I usually ride from Vanderbilt and Livingston to the Naples pier via pelican bay and back on the weekends. Not a fast rider and out of shape so just trying to get some miles under my belt.
Hello Nick & Ana -
I live in South Fort Myers, but bring my bike down to Naples on the weekends (Saturday and Sunday) to do some riding from the Pavilion Shopping Center (Naples Cyclery) down through Pelican Bay Blvd and as far south as Venetian Village or even further south into the Moorings (near Lowdermilk Park) for a total of 15 miles round trip. I'm not a racer - though I do sprint from time to time just for conditioning. Average Speed: 14 to 16 mph Sprint to 20-22 mph at times. Then, afterwards I usually stop for a post-ride cup of coffee at Fit & Fuel.
Like you, Nick, I'm just getting back into cycling (lost about 10 pounds since I started in late October) and I love it! I know this is last minute, but if you guys are still in town - I usually start at the Pavilion at around 10am on Saturday and just take my time cycling through. :)
