Any comments, especially on council's response to the proposal?
Nothing surprising there. I feel CTC HQ seem to have lost the way on this one. The basic DA structure was fine for 1908 and 1958 but has been creaking more and more as people have started to drive to a ride start. We can discuss the ecological implications if you like but the fact is that a lot of people do drive a fair distance for a ride. They have had a 'good idea' i.e. Members Groups, but then seem to have restricted the idea with the same local focus of the old DAs.
On communicatuions I feel newsnet is not the way to go. What's wrong with a MG section of the forum dedicated to ride announcements. Threads would be headed Recumbent Trikers rides July-September 2008, October-December 2008, etc.
I've asked on CTC forum and other fora I frequent for an expression of interest. So far there has been a few respondees.
