Going to fill out the membership after work just felt I should say hello, I may join you guys on your Sunday ride. :D
Fantastic - welcome and looking forward to riding together
Just paid for the jersey combo thingy in large, Will be with group C this Sunday I hope...
hi i'm intrested in joining ICC and was think of coming to the saturday morning tarining rides at RP, one question how fast is the early 7am ride? I normally train at RP early on saturdays and i'm sure i will be ok for the slower 8am ride but i wanted to check the pace of the early one. If its ok i will probably do both.
I have been riding for a while and i'm doing the London Ride in August but i have mostly ridden solo. My longest ride is just under 50miles at the moment.
hope to see you saturday
You'd be very welcome to come and join in. We recommend new riders start with the 8am ride on Saturdays or the C group on Sundays.
But you will know your pace/speed best.
Have a look at the Strava data of members on the Saturday rides then decide.
Many of us are building up to RideLondon100, self included.
Our audax - The Great Escape - on 18 May would be great preparation.
thanks for the advice i will check the Strava data, see you saturday looking forward to it
hi i had my first guest ride with ICC at RP this morning, really enjoyed it and have just
paid my membership
Great stuff, welcome to ICC!
Hey, enjoyed my first club run today with Group B, Just signed up for membership + Jersey. Will see you all soon. Just wondering where I get the jersey from and how I get full access to forum? Cheers
I will email you
Welcome Matt, glad you enjoyed it!
Nice one Matt, welcome
Hi guys, after my first ride on Sunday I signed up for membership last night.
Already have the bike booked in for a service this week so will miss Saturday's Regent's Park ride but hope to see you all again on Sunday - although I'm going out for wedding anniversary dinner Saturday night and I may struggle carrying the extra weight.
Next step: figuring out how to change that purple flower avatar to something a bit more me.
Welcome to ICC +CoffeeGuy! Feel free to say hello in our clubhouse thread and introduce yourself.
I participated on the last intro ride but would like to do the Sunday one before joining. Is there a C group next Sunday (9th) that I could join? At what time do you usually get back? Thanks and looking forward to it, the intro one was really nice!
Welcome Paola! We're glad you enjoyed the ride.
Yes, there is a C ride this Sunday which is going to be led by @Qing_Sun. It's around 45 miles. We usually get back to the cafe in Finchley at around 11.30/12.
Great! see you on Sunday 8:30 @Qing_Sun
Newbie here, so I just want to triple check - the C ride is the slowest of the lot?
I'm keen to join the club, and have previously ridden in bunches and road raced - but not for about 20 years!
Currently fat and slow and with few miles in my legs, but keen to change that as quickly as possible.
Welcome, you are correct in assuming that C is the slower of our group rides and also the shortest - this weeks ride is being led by @Qing_Sun and he plans on leading a 45 mile ride at a pace of somewhere between 12-14 mph.
no one gets left behind and we wait at the top of hills, so come along and enjoy. 8:30 whittington Park (on Holloway Road).
Great, thank you. I'll be there.
Ive finally signed up...yay!
Will be there Sunday for the C-ride to get back into the swing of things :-)
Steve_Harris - Welcome!
Excellent @Steve_Harris glad you joined up. I am leading the B ride and having seen you out on the intro ride, I reckon you'd have no trouble with it!
Thanks @Ali for the vote of confidence :-D
Whats the distance of the B ride?
Its been a while since i did an intense long ride...dont want to hold people back.
approx. 62 miles back to Whittington Park. There is a 45mile C ride, so it is up to you if you think your legs will be up to it. Given that I have the 70-75 mile ladies ride the day before I might not be as fresh.
