  • 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.

  • Just a heads up that my space is now free (though there are plenty more!) as I’ll be joining the group skills session on the 8th Oct

  • And now joining again as I won’t be able to make the 8th Oct!

  • Hi @user117615 @Ben_Granger @JeremyF_QhubekaUK @PaulONeill @gdubs26 @jonathanos @maddybadco @HughT @Henrietta @DomLyons @CharlotteBartels @CharlotteB

    I hope you are all looking forward to Group Skills tomorrow, this session is still going ahead . Weather forecast is looking like 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, as this helps us manage group sizes and volunteers required.

    Look forward to seeing you all tomorrow.

  • Lovely!

    What’s the rough timing tomorrow? Just planning day one of lockdown-not-lockdown...

  • Show up at 9:29am, no need to be early.

    The session takes 1-1.5hrs, so will be done by 11am at the latest, but usually earlier than that.

  • Looking forward to it, see you tomorrow.

  • Soz, going to postpone as not comfortable being out in a group at the moment. My father is 79 and hoping to see him soon and need to be careful. Sorry guys

  • Thanks so much for the reminder yesterday @Zac but have spent the bulk of the night up with an upset stomach so lacking the reserves to make it out for this. Perhaps smart to avoid a potential infecting situation too (if indeed im carrying anything), given the circumstances. Sorry guys but will have to book into the next session - super frustrating. Hope you have a great session.

  • Massive apologies for not making this and not de-attending - wasn’t feeling too hot this morning so thought it best to steer clear. Still hoping to make a future session

  • Extra space has been added for next weeks session if you can make it it then
