CTC “Rebranding” (cont)

Received the following from an ex-member of CTC Council:

Dear Secretary/Member

CHANGE OF THE BRANDING NAME OF THE “CTC” to “CYCLING UK” – DEMAND FOR A POLL OF THE WHOLE CLUB

You and your CTC members may have become aware that at the Cyclists’ Touring Club (CTC) Council meeting on 23rd January 2016 agreed on a vote of 10 to 5 to replace the existing “Cyclists` Touring Club or CTC” and associated logo(s) and heritage marks with “CYCLING UK” or another branding name and logo(s) – see https://www.ipo.gov.uk/tmcase/Results/1/UK00003150027.

We are petitioning the CTC to demand a poll of the whole club so CTC members will have the opportunity to endorse or overturn the motion.

It is our opinion the entire decision-making process was flawed and any dissent was either ignored or shouted down.  A similar technique was used regarding the governance issue, but more of that a little in the future.  We need 200 valued CTC members signing, but I want many more to avoid any being discounted and to show the strength of feeling.

It has been drawn to our attention that there are already similarly named cycling-related internet sites:

Please could you circulate this petition to fully paid up CTC members.

Please ensure that their name/number is legible and that they must also sign it in black or blue ink/biro.

Please note that we have the support of some councillors.

We are seeking the poll details to be in the April/May edition of “Cycle”, so time is short.

Please return the completed sheets in an A4 size envelope to me ASAP at:

Philip Benstead CTC Brand Petition,

19 Greencoat Mansions, Greencoat Row, Westminster, London, SW1P 1PG.

Many thanks for your help,

Philip Benstead
