Naples Velo is the area's largest and longest running Cycling club in southwest Florida. With that distinction we offer many benefits to the cycling community and our members as follows:
- Fun Rides - Theme rides throughout the year (multiple Moe's rides, Halloween, Easter, Cafe Luna evening dinner rides, among others)
- Social Events - A variety of ongoing social activities, including our frequent end-of-the-week happy hour gatherings
- Daily Group Rides - We maintain a seven-day-a-week ride schedule of varying pace and routes
- Membership Discounts Program - A number of area retailers and businesses offer preferred pricing and discounts to our Club members. We provide updated Club member lists to our retail partners for your convenience!
- Youth Development - We are the only local cycling institution actively growing a youth development program
- Racing! - We help to bring the area's largest and only bicycle race weekend to downtown Naples (expected to be bigger and better this year!) plus a local Criterium Racing Series in October
- Visitors' Resource - We act as a welcoming conduit and information venue for out of state visitors and worldwide visitors
- Safety Initiatives - Naples Velo focuses on safety by acting as a liaison with the local sheriffs department and other government and law enforcement agencies -- meeting frequently with leaders and representatives to discuss safe cycling initiatives
- Education and Training - We offer access to education and training with Club-developed material, through partnering with third-party firms and through partnering with our friends at Naples Pathways Coalition
- Great Uniforms - Highly visible, super high quality uniforms offered at great discounts to our Club members, with new designs offered every other year
- Event Volunteers - We field an army of volunteers for local athletic events, working in tandem with area running and triathlon clubs
- Awesome Website and Communication Platform- Our state-of-the-art website and social media platform allows us (1) to keep members current on local events and activities and (2) to distribute an ongoing stream of safe cycling tips, ideas and content
- Holiday Party! We put on an annual Holiday Season party that can't be missed!
- Plus .... And many, many more reasons
.... but NONE of this can happen or continue without YOUR Club membership and support.
There are a number of Naples Velo Community members who may not recognize the difference between being a "facebook-like" friend of the Naples Velo Community site (our website) and being a FULL CLUB Member. A FULL CLUB Member helps support all of the above activities through their financial support via payment of annual Club dues. Individual dues are $40 per year and family dues are $70 per year .... the same fee structure as last year.
... for example, here is a quote from one of our out-of-town visitors:
"I was quite frankly embarrassed that I wasn't a paying member. I've used your site at least two dozen times to establish local contacts and to plan my trips; the help was immeasurable. Riding with your group -- the friendly and helpful members, the beautiful weather and routes, the high level of talent -- made my past two vacations in Naples unforgettable. Even though I'm not a local -- please accept my membership application to support what you guys do. Thanks again! -Roy H., Vermont "
So please, JOIN or RENEW your Naples Velo CLUB Membership today. It's an easy process (see link below) and barely costs more than an average dinner for two. Yet ... your paid membership will give Naples Velo the means to continue its work to keep cycling strong and safe in our community.
