I took on the role of the Women's Rep in the club in October 2018. Please feel free to contact me via the forum or on [email protected] for anything you'd like to ask!

About me:
I joined ICC in 2016 and I've been known for taking endless photos while riding.
I've been mainly doing long Sunday club rides but since June 2019 I've been rather inactive with club rides due to my dog being sick. :( (There's a crowdfunding page here for those who'd kindly like to help).
You may still see me at Regent's Park riding with my dog on my back (!) on a Saturday morning if the weather is good! Or commuting with my dog again (that's how we now roll..!). Of at most of the Club Track Sessions at LV and HHV! <3

In July 2018 I built my first Track Bike, which I've named "Troublegum"! 😅
It's a Cinelli Vigorelli Steel 2018 and soon enough it got me into Fixed Gear Crit racing.
I did 2/3 of the ISHQ Crit series and bagged some points for the club in both the races, but unfortunately never managed to finish the series (due to doggie situation).

See you on the road (or hopefully the Track)!!
Would anyone like to borrow my doggy sometime so I can ride again? 🐶🐾🐾

    Keep your eyes peeled as someone may opt out last minute and a place may become available for you.
    Looks like capacity is already increased to try to accommodate more people but not sure if there’s a possibility to increase even more.
    @Zac is the person to confirm. ;)

    Also, @user121990 @user126115 @user116995 could you kindly change your user name to something more identifiable, to facilitate communications? :)
    Hope to see you all around soon riding with us!

    Great effort this morning everyone! Hope to see you all again soon!
    We are running a Track session at Herne Hill Velodrome next Saturday at 14:30 (tickets available in the club shop for only £14 with bikes included) so if you don’t want to miss out, hurry up! This is an induction for total beginners so no prior experience needed and there will also be a more advanced group for those with some track experience. 😉
    You can always bring your own track bike if you have one of course! 🙌🏼

    So shocking..what else can I say?
    It’s really sad when a fellow member “goes” so unexpectedly and Leroy was one of a kind. Our last ride together was from London to Whitstable in June, which unfortunately he didn’t manage to complete because of a broken spoke on his rear wheel. He was puzzled about what to do with it so I helped him bend it around the other spoke so he could at least ride to the nearest station and take the train back to London. He was my wind shield in the group and always teased each other, while he also was fond of my group selfies while riding and would happily make funny faces when I pulled my phone out of my pocket..
    Rest in peace sweet Leroy and may you always ride free.. 💔

    Riders and dog friends!
    This is an open social ride to welcome all dog owners who’d like to go for a stroll with our paw friends! (I’m obviously trying to find reasons to get on my bike outside of my commutes!)
    We will start at Regent’s Park Entrance at 9am on Sunday, aiming to have a coffee break in between (and any pooch emergency toilet!) and aim to be at Victoria Park before 12 for the upcoming Dog Show!
    All dogs welcome, either on bike trailers, panniers, baskets or doggie backpacks, you call it!
    Let’s take a nice day out with our fur babies and our bikes and enjoy some park life! Cats on bikes may also be considered!!!
    Route will be announced soon, for those who May want to join us along the way! There will be a live tracking link, so you can see where we will be at any time until the end of the ride!
    Roughly, the route starts from ZSL Entrance at Regents Park, going to Hyde Park and coffee break at the Serpentine, carry on along the river on the North Bank via the cycle superhighway, go to the Stratford marches and end up at Vicky Park!
    Please RSVP so we know rough numbers.
    Looking forward to seeing you all there!!

    If the group is briefed properly then I don’t find any reason why not. We just have limited capacity to have guest riders on Sundays I think.
    But @SallyB is best suited to shed some light here?

    Hello everyone!
    If you’ve taken photos during the open ride day, would you mind sharing here with us for our club’s archive?
    Many thanks!
