I don't think they've read the rules - they say in that size it should be without the strapline and that it should have more space around it...
They were't the first to break them, CTC's own Club Shorts got there first

If you are implying that gaz altered the screen shot, http://westkentctc.org.uk/ shows exactly what gaz posted; Photoshop not required.

I note that although the url of this forum has changed to forum.cyclinguk.org, we're still on CTC Mk2 logo, colloquially known as the drunken bicycle.

If they try that, I expect the banned abbreviation will instantly be replaced by something even more offensive... and some say that this has already happened ;-)

I'm slowly updating the Forum, and Tapatalk, to use the new logo and name.

As has been explained to you a number of times this is not the case. CUK can go ahead, and trying to place a volunteer between two groups of people who are demanding fundamentally different things is just <moderated>.

I see no reason to accuse PB of anything.

the admin may be more independant than you think, so suggesting holding off on changes that may need reversed would seem a reasonable suggestion.

But I would have thought that if the poll was to abided by the whole rebrand should have been postponed..
However, I suspect the CUK intend to ignore the result of any poll anyway....

If we're not supposed to call it CUK cos that sounds rude or something, the people who devised the name Cycling UK have failed to consider all aspects of the rebranding.

I think they should join/form a Federation as well. Because there might be one or two people out there who do not appreciate the meaning if CUK.

I didn't realise the abbreviation of the new brand was an insult: is that somehow karmic ? :)
