However same campaign phrased as "You can get help starting cycling from your local CTC group" and they would not be disadvantaged. They could do the "contact your local CUK group or your local CTC group (same organisation) but it would complicate things and dilute the message - do members of the public seek out a CUK group or a CTC group ?
You seem to be coming up with problems where none exist, I thought we had enough already. A member group or affiliated club can be a part of Cycling UK whatever they're called, in exactly the same way as they were a part of CTC The National Cycling Charity regardless of their name.
Here's how my MG appears on the new Cycling UK website;
Without doing anything to our website, it'll already be on the first page of a search with the words "Cycling" and "Derby" (or "Burton") After the website's key words have been tweaked it'll be in the first few hits of any such search. And top of the page when searching "Cycling UK Derby" it won't need a name change to make that happen.
In reality, local groups organise their own promotion and publicity, they can and do use something happening nationally (Bike Week for example) but the way they do it has always been left to them and I can't see that changing.
I don't know where your ideas about member groups comes from, are you involved with one? Maybe some are different to those I know, I'm always interested to learn how different groups operate.
