In principle I agree with that Andrew. Some of my most enjoyable cycling has been with DA sections but only the largest can hope to provide real inclusivity. Allowing grass roots groups to emerge with their own enthusiasms and identity has to be a good thing especially as it doesn't tread on DA toes. I suspect the few sections who are put out will be those who aren't catering for the sort of riding member groups would typically want anyway. Which kind of proves the need for member groups.
What is apparent is the confusion over the new initiative. I hope it gets the publicity it deserves.
