Introducing the Naples Velo Speakers Bureau

Naples Velo Bicycle Club has developed a Speakers Bureau to provide information and education to motorists and cyclists concerning cycling safety. Cycling is rapidly expanding nationwide and especially in Naples where the climate is ideal for causal riders, commuters, high performance cyclists and professional athletes. The Naples Velo Mission Statement includes the following provision: “dedicated to improving cycling safety and awareness in southwest Florida.” To that end, the Naples Velo Speakers Bureau offers free of charge an experienced and knowledgeable cyclist/public speaker to speak to community organizations, cycling groups, HOAs and other civic organizations.
