Cycling UK Oxfordshire 2019 AGM and other matters

Cycling UK Oxfordshire 2019 AGM

Please join us on 10th November at 1pm or 2pm at the recently refurbished Kings Head and Bell, Abingdon for our 2019 AGM. 

This year we are experimenting with a Sunday afternoon fixture.  Peter and I, and others, will be arriving for lunch at 1pm so please join us.  The meeting will start at 2pm.

Over the last year, we have been running the group in a ‘low maintenance’ mode.  This has certainly reduced the work, and despite that we have had very successful 75-mile and Tri-Vets Century rides, plus we have continued some campaigning, funding and social media activities.

But is this enough? 

We are keen to hear your views on what should happen at the Oxfordshire level, supplementing the local Cycling UK groups.  We would be particularly happy to have new members on the Committee to help organise this: currently I (Robin) can do the administration but don’t have time for much more.

As a result, we will also have a ‘backstop’ Motion to enable the Committee to wind up the Group if in their view the workload exceeds the benefits during the year.

Motions should be received 7 days before the meeting by Robin Tucker at secretary@cyclingukoxfordshire.org

Please look on our website in early November for the Agenda: cyclingukoxfordshire.org/rides-and-events

Cycling UK Trustees

You may have noticed a Trustees election form with your latest Cycle magazine.  Trustees are important as independent guides to the Charity, so please take the time to vote – the deadline is 31st October.  There are an excellent field of candidates, all selected to have skills that Cycling UK are looking for – there is even one local to Oxfordshire.
