  • Group Skills is a session for prospective and current members of ICC which teaches group riding skills so that we can ride together more safely, more sociably and with less effort.

    If you wish to join ICC you must complete one of our introductory sessions, either Group Skills of our Intro Ride.

    You can find out more about the session and what to bring on this page, which also lists special requirements for under-18s:

    Before attending please read our Group Skills Guide, our Ride Etiquette and special Ride Etiquette for Regent’s Park:­CC-Group-Riding-Guide.pdf­tiquette


    You should be used to cycling regularly, familiar with your bike and confident riding it on London's roads. If you've only just bought your bike, take it out for a couple of spins on your own before you join a group ride with us.

    You should have a moderate level of fitness. For our general club rides you should be able to ride 50 km at an average speed of at least 20kph on the flat, with several steep hills and only brief stops. For Regent’s Park you should expect to cycle at an average speed of at least 24kph, with the benefit of riding in a tight group.

    If you're not yet comfortable at that distance or pace please build up with solo rides before coming along.

    Unfortunately, we cannot offer this session to complete cycling beginners as we are not teaching cycling proficiency.


    If you wish to attend this session register as a user on the Forum then click the 'Yes I'm Attending' button above to confirm your attendance. We will ask you to reconfirm a few days before the ride. You will need do this on the Forum.

    If you are a former ICC member or under 18 please let us know in advance by adding a note below.

    We know people’s plans can change so we will ask you to reconfirm your place or release it a few days before the ride.

    These rides get booked up quickly. If no places are left, the session is full. We do not maintain a waiting list so please keep checking in case a place becomes available.

    If you do sign up but cannot attend, please remove yourself from the attendance list so someone else can take the spot. You can do this by clicking the ‘Can’t Make It’ button above which appears once you have signed up.

    If you do not attend and do not remove yourself, we reserve the right to restrict your attendance of future Intro Rides and Group Skills.


    Riders attend club rides strictly at their own risk. Please listen to your ride leaders and follow their instructions.

    ALL RIDERS MUST observe the Highway Code AT ALL TIMES when riding with Islington CC. This includes: riding no more than two abreast; riding in single file to allow traffic to pass on narrow roads; obeying traffic lights and signs; not riding on pavements; and not abusing other road users.

    You must wear a helmet to take part in any of our club rides.

    Please acknowledge any courtesy shown to you by other road users and stop at pedestrian crossings where necessary.


    Once you have completed an Intro or Group Skills ride you will qualify to pay the membership fee and join the club. Once you’ve signed up through British Cycling our membership secretary will process your application and be in touch shortly to welcome you to the club. This normally takes up to a week, so please be patient. See

    Looking forward to seeing you!

  • Hello looking forward to this! Despite the summer season just want to confirm we still go ahead rain or shine?

  • Yes it will go ahead unless conditions are dangerous. If anyone is going to pull out due to the weather (and it looks like it should be fine by then) then please say as its not fair on those of us who give up our free time to run these sessions when people register and then don't turn up.

  • Ignore please, I've booked onto Saturday's session

    Slightly late notice but would it be possible to attend the session tonight?

  • Mabra, we are full at the moment, but check back at 5pm as we do often have late cancellations
