To better understand the market, we are looking for members to complete a survey to give their views. You don’t need to have been on a cycling holiday before to take part and you will be given the chance to enter a prize draw to win £200 cash. If you have any questions, please contact Gideon Barker at gideon@profundo.co.uk.

Is that a genuine survey from Cycling UK?

Edited: Now found it in Cycleclips: genuine.

Thanks

Wonder if this survey is possibly related to the fact that several experienced tour leaders have recently ceased running cycle uk holidays and instead set up their own independent website bikexplore.co.uk.It would seem that the skill and experience needed to lead a cycling tour is not appreciated by the trustees .Not a core skill I suppose .

I gave-up as it became more apparent as you go through more questions that they don't understand touring by yourself or touring self organised. I was increasingly having to enter text in the "other" box.

Er... it's a survey aimed at people who might be interested in going on an organised group tour, coming from a provider of organised group tours. What would you expect it to ask you about?

Does not say that, just those going on "cycling holiday or tour". I go on cycle tours and wasted time because they hadn't bothered so specify they were only interested in a specific limited subset of those who go on cycle holidays and cycle tours. If they can't even identify who they want to take the questionnaire clearly I would question many other aspects.
