Hello is there a B ride this Saturday ? If so please can I join? I'm a member of two other clubs so used to riding at that pace and in groups
Cheers ! Isobel
Thanks Martine! Is the sat b ride from Wittington Park at 8 30 ?
Yes, we leave at 8:30 so be there 5 minutes before. Have a nice ride.
Thanks Martine !
any way to pay a premium and get the performance jersey rather than the club jersey?
Unfortunately we don't keep stock of the performance jerseys so you wouldn't be able to grab one - they can only be had on a special order basis through the shopify.
I've just signed up and believe my membership has been approved by @Sir_Shannonball , but i was just trying to post to http://forum.islington.cc/conversations/619/?offset=900#comment12808955 but I get permission denied... any idea what i need to tweak to get access?
@Sir_Shannonball will be able to tweak your permissions. Also, welcome!
Hi, I’m hoping to join the club. I emailed the club secretary a few weeks back about joining.
I’m hoping to join the C group on Sunday March 6th if that’s ok? Many thanks, Steve
Hi there. If you have experience riding in a group the C ride should be all good for you.
To officially join, you need to go via the British Cycling website.
Welcome, in advance!
I have experience in cycling not majorly in big groups but keen to get involved and learn.
I’ve a background in running marathons, I’ve ran three (all around 3:15) and have another in April but after want to focus solely on cycling.
I’ve the London Triathlon in the summer then plan is to do a European sportive as a trip away late August/September etc... and thought joining my nearest cycling club was a good way to start!
Certainly sounds like you're fit enough Steve! You don't necessarily need group riding experience to join the C ride, just let the leader know you're new and they should tell you all you need to know.
Hello please can you tell me the usual pace of the B and A groups ? I've looked at the pace on your website but a friend said the B ride is a little slower than advertised . What is the A pace ? ( I know that's a stupid question as it depends who is riding and what the collective mood is ... but will ask anyway ) I'm hoping to find a 26/27 kph ride ...
Cheers! Can't say I'm cycling fit but hope to get there some day. Prefect I'll turn up on Sunday week and go from there.
B rides are 24-26/7 kph depending on how well the group works together. A rides are 28kph plus
Thanks Alex !
Hi there - I'm very keen to join a ride with the club. I've been cycling for years and have a fair bit of experience riding in groups. Currently riding about 70km each weekend averaging around 27kph, so was thinking that the B ride on Sunday would be a good place to start? Also, is there a ride on Saturday apart from RP laps?
Happy to have you come along, welcome and enjoy. It sounds like a B would be ideal for you at that pace.
Saturday rides tend to be a little more ad-hoc, with members organising during the week between themselves. The 8am RP laps are a good place to meet people, with coffee and chat usually involved.
Look forward to seeing you out on the road,
I've offered to lead a B-ride of ~80km on Sunday (8:30 from Whittington Park). Have a look in the B ride part of the forum for the route. Happy to have you along!
Thanks both. I'll come along tomorrow am.
Should be very soon Steve :0)
Paging @Sir_Shannonball @Orestis
alright, as I joined the club today it should just be a matter of time then. thanks for clarifying!
