Group Skills is a chance to learn and share our group riding skills so that we can ride together more safely, more sociably and with less effort. This is a great opportunity for current and prospective members to build on skills, especially for those unable to find a place in the Introductory Rides.
If you are a prospective club member, completing this course will allow you to join ICC
We will look at communication skills and formations such as pace line and two up, plus how to pace/lead the ride from the front and rotate being at the front.
Note that we will adjust the level depending on the level of who shows up.
If you know all this, come and share your knowledge and if you don't, come and take advantage of the sharers.
If you are new to the club and wish to become a member you will need to complete either a Group skills or an Introduction to club cycling training session. Please make yourself known to the ride leader so they can confirm your attendance to our membership manager.
Meet in the Regents Park Inner Circle, at the big gates opposite York Bridge.
ICC Group Riding Guide

Hello, happy new year :)
I would like to come along to try the group skills session. I've not been part of a cycle club before but have cycled here and there around London, hope that will be okay.
Very much looking forward to the session. First time with a cycle club/riding in a group.
That will be fine, coming along to this session will give you an idea of what to expect when out on the road in a group and help you decide if it's something you'd like to do more of.
Hi there I'd love to register to come along to this if possible? I haven't ridden with ICC before but I'm keen to give it a go!
Just click 'I'm Attending' above and come along on the day. It's also advisable to download and read the 'ICC Group Riding Guide' (also above) before the event. Enjoy!
Apologies, I'll be unable to ride tomorrow as have been unable to shake a nasty cold over the last two days. Best of luck everyone.
Hi! I cannot make it either tomorrow, helping my brother with his thesis :( Have fun! Looking forward to joining the group next time.
I'm also down with this dreaded cold that's going round I'm afraid. Was hoping to drag myself out but don't think it's wise, sorry
I did my first ride with the Club (group C) on Sunday just gone. Wai told me that I shouldn’t have to do the group riding skills as he thought my level was fine but told me to mention this to you. I have ridden with other clubs before and have been riding now with groups for 15 years. I’m about to purchase my ICC membership. Let me know if you think I need to do the group skills.
I’m afraid you do need to do the group skills training, it’s compulsory for new members. I’m sure you’re very experienced and skilled but it’s the same requirement to be fair for everyone. The session covers lots of other useful things that you may have not come across, and good to double check old habits!
Or you can do the intro ride as an alternative to Group skills - there are still places next Saturday https://forum.islington.cc/events/4468/#comment14581744 It is more of a time commitment than Group Skills but a chance to get out of London.
I'm so sorry I missed this, I was struck down with a horrible virus, planning to be at the next one in February
