    Hi Jonny,

    Great to hear that you've been out already, have you applied to join the club? What you need to do next is to join through the links on islington.cc which will take you to a joining page on British Cycling. You then just need to complete either a Group Skills or Intro ride training session to have your application accepted.

    Cheers
    Alec

    Hi Simon,

    I’m afraid you do need to do the group skills training, it’s compulsory for new members. I’m sure you’re very experienced and skilled but it’s the same requirement to be fair for everyone. The session covers lots of other useful things that you may have not come across, and good to double check old habits!

    Cheers

    Group Skills is a chance to learn and share our group riding skills so that we can ride together more safely, more sociably and with less effort. This is a great opportunity for current and prospective members to build on skills, especially for those unable to find a place in the Introductory Rides.

    If you are a prospective club member, completing this course will allow you to join ICC

    We will look at communication skills and formations such as pace line and two up, plus how to pace/lead the ride from the front and rotate being at the front.

    Note that we will adjust the level depending on the level of who shows up.

    If you know all this, come and share your knowledge and if you don't, come and take advantage of the sharers.

    If you are new to the club and wish to become a member you will need to complete either a Group skills or an Introduction to club cycling training session. Please make yourself known to the ride leader so they can confirm your attendance to our membership manager.

    Meet in the Regents Park Inner Circle, at the big gates opposite York Bridge.
