Hello! I just sent an email to the membership address about the possibility of coming along on a ride and maybe joining the club, but now I've dug a little deeper and found this post--so please sign me up. I'm confident cycling in London, but have relatively little experience riding in a group formation. The distance sounds fine to me. Hope to hear from someone to confirm this has all been registered, but I am now planning to be there on the morning of the 11th, so see you then, I guess?!
all the best,
Hi Grace, if you click on the "Yes, I'm attending" button you can reserve a place. That way we make sure to contact you with full information closer to the time
Edit: I've just noticed that you've already done this so we'll be contacting you closer to the ride itself with a bit more info. Hope to see you there!
Great, thanks Alex, can't wait.
Are current ICC members welcome to help out/see how it's done? Do I have to click I'm attending?
It would be great if you can help out @MattyP . I will add you to the intro ride huddle. Thanks again.
Recce'd the route yesterday evening but only just realised I did it in reverse! Hope I can be of more use on Saturday!
You could always cycle backwards?
That is how it felt in my last race!
Hi everyone, really enjoyed the ride yesterday despite the rain! Could someone maybe share the (rough) route as I was definitely a follower! Will try and get to Regent's Park ride asap and will bring clip in shoes not trainers!!
Hi Lucy. The route was shared in the PM that I sent through on Friday - if you no longer have it let me know and I'll send it again
Perfect thanks, PM wasn't coming up on my work pc but see it now.
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.
