You may be right..................I've been onto the "We are Cycling UK" website and enquired about the AGM - seeking the results of voting on the motions. The response is that the results will be posted shortly. That's a bit disappointing, on the basis that it could have been done immediately - the technology exists.
I am assuming that Motion 5 was lost to those who must have their own way. To me that's the main tragedy, but I still think that we should stick with the 'club' and get on with it, for the moment, anyway. My fear is that any real cycling matters will be lost, and fall victim to cosyness and self engrandiosment, comfortable boardrooms and generous expenses, but we'll see. CUK has a job to do in campaigning Government, DfT, local Councils, all politicians, highway engineers and designers - and all those who make associated decisions, to begin to really consider cyclists as valid human beings, and to discover that our lives matter - it's not impossible, see Denmark, Germany, The Netherlands.........................
Apart from the excellent campaigning done by our local RtR officer, and our local sections and family atmosphere therein
(I may be dismissed from membership now, for being a heretic - using offensive words like "sections" indeed!!!!!
), , the only thing left for me in CUK is the (vain?) hope that campaigning will be expanded and become more effective. Roger Geffen has the skill, the know-how and the commitment - will CUK actively and effectively support him?
Fine words and rhetoric notwithstanding, we really must stick with them (CUK).
