  • 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.

  • Hello - is this still happening? I don't think that tier 3 prevents it but wanted to check? ... Thank you

  • Hi @ClareHennessy under tier 3 we can still cycle in groups of 6 so this will be going ahead. I'll provide an update with more details in a couple days.

  • Great thank you and looking forward to it :-)

  • Hi Zac

    Would it be a problem if I do this on my single speed city bike? I ask because I need to swing by town on Saturday to do some Christmas shopping, and I don't leave my good road bike out of my sight in London!

    I'll be fine for speed assuming we're doing laps of regents park because it is flat.

    Thanks and Merry Christmas!

  • Hi @PAULjR that should be fine, as long as you're comfortable riding in a group with it.

  • Hi @PortlyPuncheur @user121168 @JamesV @Matt_Robinson @CianKevane @user122028 @ClareHennessy @user121694 @Tarn_walker @MarcoDatola @renee_matey @PAULjR @user122471 @WeiS

    I hope you are all looking forward to Group Skills tomorrow. This session will be going ahead rain or shine!

    Due to being in tier 3 due to Covid, 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 it can you please click "Can't make it" at the top of the page. As this will allow others to join and helps us manage group sizes and volunteers required.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    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

  • Thanks for the update 👍

  • Have done! See you tomorrow

  • I’m late...anyone around?! Sorry

  • .

  • Devastating news! Not just for Xmas but for our intro to ICC! If anyone fancies a ride over the festive period - I think we are allowed to in groups of 2.
    Keep safe guys!

  • Hi all, hope you enjoyed this morning and look forward to you joining the club. Glad we were able to get this last Group Skills in. Once your membership has been processed you will gain full access to the forum and can organise rides with others in pairs.

  • Hi - Does anyone else have full access to the forum yet? I’m not sure if I’m doing something wrong here. . . A signed up a few weeks ago.

  • And happy new year! 😬

  • Hi @renee_matey if you email [email protected] @SallyB will be able to help you out
