• Hello all! I'm visiting from Melbourne in Australia and was hoping to be able to join a local group ride this coming weekend (Apr 15th/16th). I'm an experienced group rider, I race and am a member of the Hawthorn Cycling Club back home. So, a few questions:

    1. Are riders who are not members of Islington CC welcome on a club ride?
    2. If so, is there any sign-in/registration procedure, or is it just 'turn up at the right place at the right time'?
    3. Does anyone know of a reasonable place to hire a road bike that doesn't cost three times was much as hiring a car for a day? I'll be staying in Camden, but happy to travel a little bit to pick one up - doesn't need to be especially fancy, just well-maintained.



  • Hey Rob, there isn’t a ‘guest rider’ option in place. Only club members can attend club rides, after having completed an ‘intro ride’ or ‘Group Skills Session’. These take place a few times a month on a Saturday morning. Weekend Club Rides head out on Sunday mornings. Details should be on the website.

    As for bike hire, it might be worth considering a Rapha membership?
    There are plenty of routes available in their clubhouse too

    Hope you get in some good riding during your visit


  • What size bike would you be after?
