I have sat on my own fair share of committees, even cycling, as with a friend we started the largest mountain bike club in my home county of Yorkshire – The West Yorkshire Rough Riders. It was possibly the most rewarding bike related job I ever did, but equally the most frustrating. You will never please everyone and there will always be a very vocal group outside of your committees, but what has to be realised is that committees and boards give up their time freely, in the hope to contribute to a better cycling club. It is not in anyones interest to see discord, and I don’t believe for one moment the board have anything but the clubs best interests at heart.
Let them do their job. Give them the chance to work out any issues. Sniping from the sidelines is not only discourteous, it sets back the good work already done. I can only speak from my own experiences, but I have been involved in cycling (as a racer, sportive organiser, coach, and club president to name a few) for more years than I care to admit. What is very clear to me is that we have a tremendous club here, one I’m proud to be a member of.
