  • 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. Feel free to read our Group Riding Guide beforehand, but is not necessary as we will cover all this during the session:­Guide-Updated-August-2020.pdf

    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.


    If you wish to attend this session you need to sign up to the ride here on the Islington forum.

    Register as a user on the forum (please help us by creating an actual name rather than the default username) then click the 'Yes I'm Attending' button above to confirm your attendance. If you see no places left, it is because the session is full. We do not maintain a waiting list so please keep checking back in case a place becomes available.

    Meet in the Regent's Park Inner Circle, at the big gates opposite York Bridge.

  • Not well enough to make today’s (17th session) so if a space frees up, I’d be v keen to join this one.

  • Hey, spot available as i went to todays session :)

  • Thanks @Henrietta!

  • Hey all, I'd be super keen joining this one if someone is dropping out!

  • @AndreasMM despite my best efforts to make this, I’m now having to self-isolate so please make use of mine!

  • Hi @DavidHoyland @Williamclayton @user117780 @DanaiM @WilliamJohan @Davin @Gabriel @Gillkingston @Martinbuk77 @BartToorenaar @Ben_Granger @alexrogers191 @AmyMoore @user118259 @JoelGardner @user119809 @Max_Gerrans @Memona @DanFrayne @ErezRegev

    I hope you are all looking forward to Group Skills on Saturday. Weather forecast is looking like the rain may just hold off. Due to the latest covid situation, we will be splitting up into groups of 6 as you arrive with the entire skills session held within your group of 6 with a ride leader. This is to avoid having one large group during the initial briefing.

    If you are no longer able to make this session, could you please remove yourself from the attendee list, as this helps us manage group sizes and volunteers required. And as this session is now fully booked and there may be others waiting that would love a spot. (If you reserve a spot but fail to attend we reserve the right to limit your future attendance).

    Look forward to seeing you all.

    If you would be able to change your username to something a little more recognisable, it will help us greatly with managing attendance and membership processing. Thanks

  • Hi Zac, I attended a Group Skills class a few weeks back when a space became available so will drop out of this one.

  • Sorry, going to have to drop from this one

  • Thanks so much!

  • Hi! I have just signed up to tomorrow's group ride session as I'd like to apply to become a member, although I haven't submitted any formal request to become a member (I wasn't sure on how to do this), so I hope it's ok if I just show up tomorrow in Regent's Park!

  • Hi @Fra1993 after the session your group leader will give you the details of how to join as a member and answer any questions you may have.

  • Brilliant! Cheers Zac!

  • Sadly can’t make it now as have to work. Enjoy all
