Why would I renew?
I left months ago.

Not the club I joined, so perhaps they left me.
You kept that very quiet!
I think he may have mentioned it once or twice... or more. :wink:

After 41 years membership, I have not renewed. I nearly took out life membership in 2005, thank goodness I didn't or I would have been trapped with them now. The Trustees and staff have no interest in the members and see them purely as a source of finance, which isn't really surprising when you have a CEO on a six figure salary, and treat senior members appallingly. I am now a member of the National Clarion, membership costs £20 per year, much cheaper than both BC and CUK and they don't insist I wear a helmet too. So many of us have left CUK that we are in the process of setting up our own local Clarion group, which is now starting to thrive.

I do wonder what the public profile of CUK is. A riding conversation with 5 club mates yesterday showed the 4 of them have never heard of the CUK .( How I hate that. Its just like BC . It should say something like The ....... to make grammatical sense. Although British Cycling does work in one context eg British Cycling happens in all weathers. That poor grammar finished things off for me. )
As a club we wonder why we affiliate. Mostly so we can play BC off against CUK and cheery pick what we want.
Discounts. :lol: Off RRP usually. Shopping around is easier. The only organisation discount worth having is BC when you can get Halfords to pile in onto sale item plus a bit of top cash back.
Bc for me. I can race. Don't care a toss about the helmets in events rules as I don't ride them otherwise. Nor do I use a helmet all the time.
