Cycling UK (CTC) – Proposed Change to Subscriptions
You will be interested to note
- Cycling UK (ctc) propose abolishing the ‘Senior Discount’ membership (£30.50pa) which will leave most members having to pay the full fee of (£48pa). This is an increase of 57%!!
- Most Meridian members are over 65 and use Cycling UK Senior Discount membership to obtain 3rd party insurance.
- 3rd Party insurance is prerequisite to being a Meridian member.
- Full details of the change are in the latest edition of ’Cycling’ magazine and can be seen by following the link

It’s probably too late to do this now, But try to locate these papers – it makes voting easier.
