    Hi! I've not been able to sit down at my laptop over the weekend so plan on processing all outstanding applications today (I normally do this on a Monday and Thursday anyway), so you'll get a confirmation email from me this evening, or potentially earlier if I get a break from meetings today! You'll then be able to sign up for the club rides via the forum.

    Hi Graham, club rides are back on but you need to sign up to rides in advance for control of numbers/Insurance reasons (we have to do this to comply with British Cycling's mandatory requirements). We also ask everyone to scan the ride leader's QR code for track and trace purposes. Assuming if you don't have the ability to see the rest of the forum then you're not currently a member? If you are a member then DM me your email address and I'll get your forum permissions sorted out.

    Hi Steve,

    Unfortunately all of our currently advertised sessions are fully booked (we have an unprecedented number of people wanting to join the club at the moment) but do keep an eye out in case people drop out last minute due to diary clashes.

    Our Sunday club rides don't count as we have a set number of signals/instructions/riding formations we need to run through for health and safety purposes and official registers are taken at each event so that we can confirm attendance and get memberships processed.

    We hope to put more sessions on as soon as we have enough volunteers to cover the ride, so hopefully you won't have to wait too long.

    Hey, think you're in the wrong place... this is a ride from 4 years ago. You should be able to find a ride to join in this area: https://forum.islington.cc/microcosms/11­4/ under the green/silver/blue/black options depending on what speed and distance you're after

    Hope that helps.

    Hi Sue,
    Not to worry, if you could remove yourself from the event (click the No longer attending button at the top) then it'll give someone else the chance to nab your spot, save it going empty.

    Thanks for letting us know,
    Sally

    Looking at the attendance list for this event, there are a couple of you who have already attended a session and have successfully joined the club. If possible please can you relinquish your space so that others can take your spot and get their membership started? If you're still a bit nervous about club riding you will be in very safe hands on our Green Sunday rides and I really recommend going along to one of those to boost your confidence.

    Thanks,

    I've now processed all applications based on the attendee lists from the weekend. If you came on this ride and have made a membership application but you haven't had an email from me, then please drop me an email - [email protected] and I'll try and get it sorted for you asap.

    Hi Darren,

    I got your email earlier and posted in another section on the forum about this.

    Unfortunately (so far) no one within the club can recall reporting this pothole. https://www.fillthathole.org.uk/ is a good source, both for reporting a pothole and investigating whether it had already been reported but it doesn't appear to be on there.

    If anyone posts anything on the other thread that is of use to you then I'll be sure to pass it along, likely they will use this thread now if they come up with any thoughts on the matter.

    Really sorry that this happened to you, I hope you can get some kind of resolution and obviously we send all the well wishes your way. Hope your injuries heal fast.

    Thanks,
    Sally

    Hi Rico,

    I'm the membership secretary and the person responsible for processing all of our applications - I generally do this on a Monday and Thursday but it depends on when I can find time away from work/have an evening free.

    You'll definitely be up and running before the weekend - I'll try and get yours sorted before the end of the day.

    Thanks,

    Sally

    Hi Stephen,

    Short answer is likely no, British Cycling are currently working to try and get Government to make small club rides exempt from lockdown, but the chances of that happening are slim.

    As soon as we know one way or the other (which will likely be later on today or sometime tomorrow) we will of course let everyone know.
