About us 

Islington Cycling Club is a friendly London club offering cycle sport for all. We formed in 2013 and have quickly attracted more than 700 members. We offer a wide range of rides, including nine weekly club rides, training rides and several club and open events.

We use an internet forum as a virtual clubhouse to organise ourselves as this allows all members to help shape our club. Our focus is road cycling, but there is also growing participation for cyclo-cross and track. If there is another kind of cycling you want, members can get on our forum and set it up.

Riding with a cycling club can seem daunting at first, so we ask all new and prospective members to attend one of our monthly introductory rides. These are short club rides 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.

Islington Cycling Club is affiliated to British Cycling and is a also Go-Ride club, so we offer some youth coaching for young people aged 8-15 years old.
