I saw this post earlier today and also wondered what was up - when I was still a CTC member I joined them on the odd ride if they were heading to the east of their patch .

The Redditch & Bromsgrove CTC MG was a mildly acrimonious breakaway from the CTC-Heart of England MG about 4 years ago . . . CTC HoE as noted elsewhere ceased being an MG in September 2015 and became an independent cycling club affiliated to both CTC & BC as Heart of England Cycling Club.

Richard Bradshaw, one of the founders of R&B died (heart attack, on a club run) not long after the group was formed and I know that several of the most active founder members have just resigned/retired from committee roles and I wonder if there just wasn't enough traction to be viable?

... and no, no connection or contact re TCC.
