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: https://islington.cc/s/ICC-Group-Riding-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.
HOW DO I JOIN IN?
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.

I hope you are all looking forward to Group Skills this Saturday. Weather forecast is looking like a dry and sunny! 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 to allow for others to join, 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 on Saturday.
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
Won't be able to make this session, I've opened up my place if anyone wants to join
Hi all - I jumped in a group skills session tonight, so someone can take my Saturday spot.
attended last weeks so my spot is free for anyone who wants it
Frustratingly can't make this anymore, have opened up my spot!
Very sadly can’t make the session anymore - posting in case anyone wants to take my spot at the last minute
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.
