    Hi all,

    I hear there were some mixed messages about next steps to join the club so though I would outline here.

    If you enjoyed today, and are keen to be a member of London's friendliest cycling club, please go to this site and follow links to join the club.

    This will send your information to our membership secretary who will cross-reference our list of names and your info from British Cycling and approve your membership. At the moment we have lots of new members and, as our club is entirely run by volunteers, things take time; please allow a couple of weeks for this to be approved before chasing it up.

    Thanks for coming, any questions feel free to ask here...
    See you on the road!

    Hi everyone, looking forward to seeing you all tomorrow and showing you round our intro ride. A small bit of housekeeping first:

    1. If your username is still user123456 (eg) please change it to something more individual so we know who we are looking for tomorrow and throughout the membership process. This can be done by clicking the pencil icon in the top right of this page.
    2. Also, if you are now unable to make this event, please click the button that you can no longer attend so others can join and we aren't waiting for you unnecessarily.

    See you tomorrow,
    George

    Hi Andrea,

    The next group skills sessions can all be found here. To save our volunteers' time they are put on the site in batches. After the next event (22/06) I imagine more will be listed for you to join.

    Hope that helps,
    George

    PS. Please update your username to something more personal, it makes the registration process a bit smoother for us. This can be done by clicking 'edit profile' in the top right.

    Hi Roberto,

    You can find the Group Skills Rides that are scheduled here.

    Hi Sameer,

    I wouldn't worry about that! There are 'green' paced rides that run most weeks that are perfect for new members to get used to group-riding. The intro rides in this section of the forum are really for prospective members to learn the rules before they join the club and start to practice them.

    I know it can be daunting, but I would look at the green rides section of the forum, and jump in with a group there. That way you get more practice riding with experienced riders that will help you along the way, and you don't take a spot for a prospective member looking to learn the ropes. Hope that makes sense? Welcome to the club, I look forward to seeing you out on the road!

    Hi Giacomo,

    Have a skim through the group riding guide if you fancy it, otherwise, no! Just turn up on the day and the ride leaders will explain the session and the next steps in person.

    Hope to see you on the road soon!

    I think I shouldn't bring my rucksack with me?

    Ideally, no. Though if it's unavoidable you should be able to cope fine with it.

    I am quite keen to start getting races in the diary so would be great if that satisfies.

    Yaaay! More racers!

    Hi Lavinia,

    I'm afraid not. But sometimes people can't come at the last minute and drop out, so keep an eye on the counter at the top and click "i'm attending" if a space becomes available.

    Can you please change your username to something more recognisable? It really helps with our admin if they aren't in number form.

    Thanks! See you tomorrow!
