    Hi Jamie, Our intro rides and group skills sessions expire after 6 months. We also ask those who have let their membership lapse for 6 months or more to attend a session before they can re-join the club. This is a safety precaution to ensure that when people join/re-join they have an up to date understanding of all our signals and riding etiquette/formations, which keeps them and the rest of the club members safe out on rides together.

    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.

    Thanks,

    Sally

    Hey, just bumping this thread ahead of tomorrow morning.

    @AdamRowe, @AlexJ123, @amarco, @AshleyVardon, @AussieMatt, @Becks, @ChrisThompson28, @ChristineMaguire, @EmilyM, @Giulia, @Gold_M, @HarryRamis, @Jacob.L, @MihaiC, @MikeCK1, @Paolo-H, @RobbieGJ, @SamanthaSutton, @SofiaAllueva, @SophieH, @Tek, @Yasemin Thanks for signing up and changing your username so we can hopefully get your memberships processed quickly after the event.

    @user130709, @user130762, @user99884 you may want to update your username to something a bit more recognisable just to make everything run a little smoother.

    I hope you are all excited for our Group Skills session tomorrow morning. Please try and make it 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 this will open up your spot and allow others to join. Demand for this ride is quite high and so if you reserve a spot but fail to attend we reserve the right to limit your attendance in the future.

    Have a great time, we look forward to welcoming you to the club.

    Hi, Sorry - work has gone mad this week (again! My whole team are in the middle of responding to ofwat on some governmental stuff that has a deadline of next week, every time we answer their questions they come back with more... but you don't need to know any of that!) I will hopefully get around to responding to all emails/membership applications tomorrow when I get a bit of breathing space.

    Haha! I wish I could but I've never heard of that happening before. I won't get chance to process any membership applications before Monday so maybe give it a try tomorrow and see if you still have the same problem. We can add you in manually if the problem persists.

    Hi Frances, apologies but your name was missed off the attendees list that got sent over to me. I processed your application earlier this week and sent confirmation. You should also now have full forum access. If you have any issues please let me know.

    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.
