An all-time athlete of different disciplines throughout the years, she tried road biking for the first time late 2011. Utterly intimidated by it, it wasn’t until the beginning of 2018 when she finally decided to give group riding a try, becoming increasingly comfortable and obsessed with the road riding culture. 

Carla also spends her time as a Personal Stylist and Social Media Content Manager at WhyStyle.

Originally from Stoke-On-Trent, England. Earned a BTEC Diploma in motor vehicle engineering after school and spent my early career in car workshops as a full time mechanic.

Left the UK in 2002 to work for the US military maintaining their fleet of wheeled & track vehicles to send to Iraq. I spent a couple of years working offshore in seismic survey, and then became a stay at home dad in 2012. With kids now almost grown I acquired my real estate license focusing on residential property.

I started riding in June 2015 with no background whatsoever in exercise and fell in love with it instantly. I now ride not only for personal health, but for the friendship, social & competitive aspects that it brings with it.

Originally from Habana Cuba, Erick was born in 1978. His family wanted a better future for him and sacrificed everything to bring him to the USA. He has been a Realtor since 2006 and has worked his way up in all types of Market.

Erick is the president of 239 Racing Team founded in 2016 for all of those cyclists in our community that want to experience racing. He has been a permanent resident of Naples FL since 2010 and is a proud member of Naples Velo.

My love for cycling was inspired as I watched a 50 mile road race (crit) as a teenager which commemorated my hometown legend Art Longsjo who was a member of both the summer (cycling) and winter (speed skating) Olympics. As a cardiologist for 40+ years I have witnessed and treated the ill health that can result from an unhealthy lifestyle. Regular exercise can moderate or eliminate such major risks as obesity, hypertension, diabetes and high cholesterol. Bicycling is an aerobic activity that can have a positive effect on maintaining a healthy body and mind. Naples Velo can provide leadership in the community to promote participation in safe and courteous cycling for both health and exercise and by advocating for safe pathways for both recreation and commuting.
