Re: Marks out of ten please

... Also do you think that issuing the Trustees report for the year ending 30th September 2015 in April the following year is likely to gain "trust and respect" from the members? ... That arrangement predates the Charity conversion, IIRC it predates the wobbly bike. It is part of our heri...

Marks out of ten please

I have just received (by post) a copy of the Cyclists' Touring Club Annual report and Financial Statement dated 30th September 2015. On page 8 is an interesting statement under the heading "Our Values" - "We conduct ourselves ethically and with integrity; our relationships and activit...

Re: Name Change

To give them credit, it's Cycling UK which has included the Winged Wheel. It's at the bottom of every page on the website http://www.cyclinguk.org , including the club pages it hosts for member groups. Yes, at the BOTTOM of the page, where hardly anyone will see it having found what they wanted hig...

Re: The slippery slope continues

A note of caution about relying on home insurance for TP cover - CHECK THE DETAILS OF COVER. My home insurance (contents) cover gives me and my family TP cover away from home for leisure pursuits, BUT the cover is limited to £2 m, as opposed to the CTC (CUK) cover of £10 m. Also cover is limited to...

Re: Name Change

If - as it seems - Cycling UK - lets forget the stupid "we are" bit for the time being - is a "wholly owned subsidiary" of the CTC then why cant the CTC remain as the umbrella organisation rather than the other way round? Then we could have Cycling uk - the campaigning arm of th...

Re: Could someone please explain

The October 2013 Membership Survey is still available to view. This is not the survey linked from the August Cycleclips, it is one of the more general type as mentioned by Vorpal. Council does use the results of such surveys to inform policy choices. I think the results were published in Feb/March ...

Could someone please explain

The current Cycle magazine includes the minutes from the 2015 AGM. Motion 6 at that AGM stated that "CTC Councillors shall take the wishes of the membership into account when interpreting the Articles of Association of the club and when deciding how to implement the objectives of the club"...

Re: Touring in Cycling UK - a modest proposal

But it's clear that two constituencies who in many ways were the mainstay of CTC, the "Saturday ride" constituency (aka member groups) and the touring constituency, feel disenfranchised by the change. I don't know anything about member groups or club cycling and wouldn't seek to pronounce...

Re: The Rebrand is Essential to our Future

I'm not a huge fan of the new logo (it's rather Early Learning Centre) but anything's better than that cartoon bike thing. Well, I suppose the slogan is marginally better than "Cyclists R Us", :oops: or "Every1 4 Cycling" :( or some other childish wording. A suggestion - can we ...

Re: Don't mention the CUK

In the late 16th century a cuk or cuck was a slang term used as an insult, short for cuckold. I seem to recall Malvolio in Twelth Night but I can't look it up at the moment. But that word (cuckold) utilises the hard "C" sound as in "comfort" or "confectionary". "C...

Can we can just ignore it?

I have just received the latest “CTC Club Shorts” missive from CTC Towers, in which Julie Rand (who I understand to be a figure of some authority) has written - All Member Group Secretaries and Publicity Officers have now been sent a set of materials so they can, if they choose , rebrand under our n...

Re: The new logo?

Just a thought, but I wonder how these folk -

http://www.cyclesuk.com/en/About-Us/cc-1.aspx

will think about the (former) CTC picking up a title so similar to theirs? Or will the (new) CTC, sorry Cycle(ing) UK be mistaken for a rival bike shop?

Re: It's all in the name - Cyclists' TOURING club

Posts on thread suggest the rebrand may be the end of our heritage and the Winged Wheel - Cries of "you are abandoning our heritage". CTC sends a mailing demonstrating the continued use of our heritage and the Winged Wheel - Cries of "how dare you use our heritage". Damned if th...

Re: It's all in the name - Cyclists' TOURING club

Because of my loyalty to our Club, I received my retro letter, envelope and Souvenir Gazette today wonderfully espousing 'The Cyclists' Touring Club' ...from Jon Snow ...and supported by our Queen ...with not a mention of the silly nonsense of a change of name of our Club. In fact the letter, mainl...
