If you ride a recumbent trike and belong to CTC ? Does your DA offer you all you want? Many recumbent trike riders take part in one day or longer rides organised locally by themselves and their friends in their home area or touring away from 'home'. I feel that forming our own Member's Group would be a way of helping us all. I suspect that this group would need to be national in scope as we are small in number in any one DA area. Such a group should be able to co-ordinate and advertise rides and also, where necessary, represent our minority interests. We would benefit from CTC's excellent back up in representing (tri)cyclists interests, perhaps on the law on pedal reflectors, particularly nonsensical for us, or on limited access to 'cycle facilities'. Our interest may well largely overlap the wider membership's but there are differences. Also, in the unlikely event of an accident during a ride, organisers would benefit from Ride Leader's cover from CTC's insurers. To start a Group we need ten CTC members to sign a pro-forma to start the ball rolling. If sufficient people indicate an interest an inaugural meeting could take place at York Rally. Two months notice to CTC are required. While I am happy to facilitate this initial move I would be happy to see someone else take the reins if they are interested. So I can assess support could you pm me or indicate on this or the CTC forum your interest? I'll make available a Pro Forma to send in to CTC if the interest is sufficient.
