Maybe NO could encourage some of them to participate in the Ride Leaders Workshops, they could do with a better understanding of their duty of care.
I hope it's resolved with understanding, for a club to function it needs to be.
It's improper but they've done it. Their procedural fart is a minor problem compared to the fact that there's a club where 13/18 turkeys will vote for Christmas!
I've been told that many CTC groups operate de facto helmet promotion, from only helmets in photos and asking any ordinary rider if they would wear one next time, to a few ride leaders like Sheffield MTB who won't lead unless everyone has an insufficient-for-MTB helmet on, citing a duty of care, which apparently doesn't include not inflicting helmet injuries on people.
National office seem to be losing the argument against compulsion, mainly because they don't seem to be making that argument to active members. Are they? Is it too subtle?
