  • 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, im new to this all, has it got me down for attending? I've never done group rides but i ride distances often, using specialized allez sport road bike.

    Hope you are all excited for Group Skills this evening. It will be going ahead regardless of weather. Please arrive 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 it helps us manage attendance and volunteer numbers.

    Thanks, and look forward to seeing you soon.

  • Hi there, I am meant to be attending this session today but just wondering if it will be going ahead given the current very heavy rain?


  • Apologies, just saw your previous post!

  • Thanks for braving the weather tonight, it was great to meet all of you. I have passed your names onto Sally our membership manager, so when you apply to become a member (here), she'll be able to approve it now. Hope to see you on a ride soon.

  • Thanks @Zac and @Cliff. Have just signed up for club membership!

  • Hi Zac

    I missed the Group Skills today and wonder wheh is the next session ??

    Thanks Danny

  • Hi Danny, I've just posted a few for August now.

  • For those of you who attended the session last night, I'll be processing memberships later on this afternoon and then likely won't be able to do so again before Monday, so if you're looking to join in on any rides this weekend please get your application in before the end of the day as I wouldn't want you to miss out.
