The organisation believes that one of the consistent factors in its success, and the respect with which it is held both by cyclists and by the organisations we both work with and try to lobby, is because it is governed by an elected body of members - volunteers voted into office by the members.
It is also fortunate to have an active and committed network of active members who work for Cycling UK and cycling voluntarily, commit huge amounts of their time to working for Cycling UK and cycling and who play an important role in informing the council of the needs and wishes of members, and holding both council and staff to account.
Because Cycling UK is the most visible of the national cycling organisations in the campaigning arena, our work is also heavily scrutinised by a wide group of stakeholders such as the cycling media, other groups, organisations and industry, and we are respected and trusted in that arena by the vast majority.
Comments on a policy can be made through the Cycling UK magazine letters page or the message boards of this web site but these are not considered “formal” approaches. To make an official comment you should write or email the Chief Executive at Cycling UK Head Office who will direct comments to the relevant staff or councillors, or you can approach a councillor directly. You may then want to get directly involved in the work or delivery of a relevant policy committee at a local, regional or national level; skilled knowledgeable volunteers are always welcomed.
