About our club

Anyone is welcome to come along and join our Sunday club rides as a guest for up to three times. Then you'll be asked to join, of course. Prospective members are required to take part in either an introductory ride or group riding skills sessions. You can book onto these in the Clipping in section of our club forum: http://forum.islington.cc

What exactly are the introductory rides and group skills sessions?
These will equip you with the skills, knowledge and confidence to attend one of our regular clubs rides with ease! Riding with a cycling club can seem daunting at first, so we run a special shorter introductory ride, in which we look at things like what to carry with you, how to ride in group formations and what are those hand signals? Then we head off and do an easy-paced ride and have a practice, followed by a cafe stop. Our group skills sessions take place in Regent's Park Inner Circle and look at how we ride together.

Our regular club rides are fun and friendly and we have a nobody-gets-left-behind policy, regrouping at all hills and turn points. Helmets are mandatory on club rides. No helmet, no ride. Newcomers should start with our Sunday C Groups, which leave Whittington Park at 8.30am.

Here's the full programme:

Saturday mornings
Meet at 7am (fast) 8am (not quite as fast) outside the zoo entrance on the Outer Circle, Regent's Park for a 90-minute training session. Coffee afterwards. Note: if you are not used to riding in close formation, please attend one of our group riding skills workshops or introductory rides first.

Sunday mornings
We meet at Whittington Park, Holloway Road entrance, N19 4RS, for an 8.30am depart. We split into three groups, Group A, Group B and Group C. A is fastest, then B, then C.
