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: https://islington.cc/s/ICC-Group-Riding-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.
HOW DO I JOIN IN?
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.
Please let me know if someone cannot make it, I will keep my eyes on it too.

Could you confirm whether there is room for to attend the 15 May session and how to book on?
Thanks very much,
Hi Jonah, your membership application won't be approved until we record your attendance at a Group Skills or Intro Ride.
Simply click the button "Yes, I'm attending!" at the top of this page to sign up. Then you'll be approve after the session on Saturday.
That is great - thank you very much!
I look forward to joining the session on Sat.
Have a good rest of the week
Jonah - Helpful if you change your username to something closer to your realname. You are a name not a number!

I hope you are all looking forward to the Group Skills session tomorrow. This will be going ahead even if it's raining! As you arrive you will be split into groups of 6 and the entire session will be run within these groups. Please try and make it on time as it is essential for the safety briefing, but there is no need to come early.
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.
Let me know if you have any questions and looking forward to welcoming you tomorrow.
@user118581 @user126252 @user127321 @user127404
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. Thanks
Looking forward to it Zac
Potential silly question, but will it be frowned upon if it is rainy and my bike doesn’t have mudguards?
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
