  • 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.

  • Hi @Zac - as a prospective club member, I'm keen to attend this Thursday session if any place becomes available.

  • Hi @Zac I would be happy to step in if anyone drops for Thursday session.

  • Hi I am no longer able to make it so there should be a spot available :) sad to be missing it!

  • Happy to take your place Emily @Zac can we do the change?

  • Hi @GiuseppeM85 it seems like that spot has already been filled by someone else.

  • Hi @Adam.G @Charlie10Cox @GraemeS @Ianb99 @Irene.Galvan @jamesnoble @JonT @MeganOBoyle @MeganW @Mugo_H @Olena @Ramesh @RichF @SarahM @Seun1075 @TomGamble @user117933 @user122222 @user126904 @ZoeCarpenter

    I hope you are all excited for our first Group Skills session tomorrow evening. As you arrive you will be split into groups of 6 and the entire session will be run within these groups.

    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 open up your spot and allow others to join. Demand for this ride is quite high and so if you reserve a spot but fail to attend we reserve the right to limit your attendance in the future.

    Also if you have already completed an Intro Ride and have joined the club, would you be able to open up your space to allow non-members to take part? We have plenty of members-only skill sessions you can now take part in.

    Let me know if you have any questions and looking forward to welcoming you tomorrow.

  • @user117933

    Would you please be able to update you forum username to something a bit more recognisable. This will help greatly with managing attendance and membership processing.

  • Hey! I cannot make it, just been invited to a last minute meeting that I can’t miss. Enjoy the ride

  • Hi Zac, sadly won't make it this time due to an injury, but look forward to joining next one. (I clicked "Can't make it")

  • Hi Zac, I will still be able to make it but I might be 10 minutes late. I do apologise.

  • Thanks for letting us know. We will look for you. @Seun1075

  • Hi Team,

    I am really sorry, but I cannot make tonight's session as I have to work.

    I have also emailed Islington, confirming i can't come so please feel free to take my place.

    Warm Regards


  • Sue - it looks like your place has been taken, so thanks for freeing it up. Hope you can make a future event, Stephen

  • Hi Sue,
    Not to worry, if you could remove yourself from the event (click the No longer attending button at the top) then it'll give someone else the chance to nab your spot, save it going empty.

    Thanks for letting us know,

  • I attended the session today to see how they're run. Nice to see some new faces and enjoyed a few chilly but sunny laps of the inner circle. @SallyB
