Name change - London Cyclist
Apologies if I'm missing this discussion elsewhere on the site but I've pushed the limits of my IT skills getting this far.
As a newbie I'm neutral on the name change and reading the varied postings on the old Issues forum has been helpful and informative. Looking at Ashok's pieces in the last 2 issues of London Cyclist he identifies a series of problems:
1. Given the number of people who cycle in London membership should be more than 11,000;
2. Only having 11,000 members limits campaigning influence;
3. Only having 11,000 members risks financial stability.
If the problem is the number of members and the name is one of a series of changes intended to encourage more cyclists to join, is there a target for that number [Double Your Voice?] and is it the same number for campaigning influence and financial stability?
How does the current membership, and the target number, compare to other, similar organisations?
