That looks a fair summary, my MG does better in some regards and worse in others. My continued disappointment is the lack of crossover in either direction. My limited experience from a couple of CCCs I know of is that they're no more diverse than the average MG, they just come from different segments of society.
I don't know how to even begin such integration, but considering the paid full time staff are supposedly under the same banner as the MG maybe the onus should be on them. In Derby the opposite was the case with the Cycling Officer going out of their way not to be associated with the MG, to the extent of hiring a ride leader from Nottingham to lead some rides (Who then contacted a local member for suggested routes!)
