1883: Rebranded Cyclists' Touring Club
1886: Traditional logo usurped by that ghastly Winged Wheel.
1906: Members voted to rebrand as The Touring Club and to amend the constitution to let in all tourists. High Court rejects application and we get stuck with focusing on those pesky cyclists.
1998: Rebranding, the current squiggly bicycle thing appears together with "CTC", "Working for Cycling", "CTC Right to Ride" and "CTC Helpline".
2012: Following a vote by the members, the Cyclists Touring Club becomes a registered Charity, "the national cycling charity" adopted as a strapline.
2013: Rebranding process announced. You did all contact your Councillor and let them know your opinions, didn't you?
2014: Council approves in principle to a change in trading name with "National Cycling Association" the hot favourite.
2016: Rebranding process announced to be complete "We are Cycling UK", "Cycling UK". Poll of the Whole Club anticipated as the rebrand has come as a complete shock .
Probably missed a few.
Lordy, gaz... have National Office got a direct line to your account?
