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.

I'm a prospective member. Looking forward to group skills! thanks, Karla
Hello, I'm also a prospective new member and would like to attend if possible please? Many thanks, Dean.
Hi Dean, in order to come along you need to click on the 'Yes, I'm attending' button at the top of the page. Thanks.
Hi, I came along to the intro ride on Saturday but I've not heard anything since? What happens next?
If you want to join the club then you need to do so by following this link: https://islington.cc/membership. If you've already done so then your application will be processed shortly (this usually takes place on a Monday and Thursday evening)
Other than sending a message on the forum, we don't have any way to contact those who attended the intro and group skills ride, and due to forum usernames being different to the names given on the register taken on the ride, it's quite difficult to match forum users to those that turned up on the day.
Hope that helps.
I did a couple of B/C trial rides with the club a few years ago but never got round to finalising my membership. I'm actually in a position to join up properly now, so looking forward to learning some group skills so I can properly join up :-)
See you in a couple of weeks!

I will be attending - see you on 17th!
Two random questions for @Alec I guess:
1) any idea of how long the session will be in terms of distance? I guess we're just in the inner circle for the most part?
2) related - is it worthwhile bringing a gilet/jacket to throw on for when we're stationary discussing skills?
Will see you in the am!
Around 20ish laps of the inner circle in total and yes bring an extra layer.
Please could I join
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
