Islington Cycling Club: how to join

Posted on
  • Great to see you’re keen to join us! We welcome new members from all cycling backgrounds and experience levels.

    You can find out more about the club on our website here.

    How to join the club
    We require all prospective members to attend an introductory skills session before joining ICC, regardless of their cycling experience. This is to make sure that club rides are safe and fun for everyone. It’s also a good way for you to come along and try out the club, as we’re unable to have non-members on our other club rides.

    These sessions are any one of:

    1. 'Group Skills' held in Regents Park usually fortnightly.
    2. 'Introduction to Club Cycling' from Highbury Fields usually on the first Saturday of every month.

    At these links you can find more information, dates and sign-up. If you can't find a session that suits, please keep an eye on the pages as people do drop out last minute and new dates are added regularly.

    Once you've attended one of these sessions you can sign up to the club straight away following the link on our website here. This will take you to our British Cycling profile page - select the tab "join our club". Please note, British Cycling membership is separate from Islington Cycling Membership.

    Once you have signed-up, you’ll hear from our membership secretary usually within a week to confirm your membership.

    You will have six-months to join after attending the skills session after which time we’d ask you to attend again.

    Membership fees
    Membership is £50 for new members. This covers a year of membership from the month you join and includes a free a club jersey (worth £47).

    When you renew your membership, the cost is £25 per year.

    We look forward to you joining us soon!

  • Hi there,

    I’d like to try a club run tomorrow.
    Would that be possible as a non member?

  • Provided you have done an Intro or Group Skills Ride you can join up to 3 club rides as a guest before you need to become a member.

  • Ok. I’ve done neither. Where do I sign up for one?

  • Links in the email above. Next Group Skills Ride is in 2 weeks.

  • Hello David,

    I have messed up a bit and already paid the membership via BC. I have booked myself into the ride on the 18 of March, but so far have not received any email back.

  • Hi Tiago,

    No worries at all. We are thrilled that you want to join us, many exciting times to come :)
    Re the BC status, it is still pending (meaning that we haven't collected any money either) until you attend the introductory session. You will receive an email from our side once you fulfill this requirement with more details about your membership status.

    Hope to see you soon!


  • Hi,
    I did the intro ride on the 4th of march. I joined the club through BC straight after but I haven’t heard back from you since paying the membership fee through Bc. Do you know when I might hear back? The reason I ask is because I’m keen to do one of the cycles this weekend.

  • Hi there,

    It usually takes a few days to process new members once they've done the intro ride, so it will be done soon. You should be fine to join a ride this weekend.
