Some other yes, I ticked that as
a) I ride with a 'club' with a website, forum, clique/heierachy etc etc, but no membership fee. They've just introduced a voulentary memebership fee, I've not paid up because I seen no benifit in it for me and my £20 isn't going to buy enough 3/4 to dust to armour any trails, and I heard from a 3rd party that the 'club' has managed to wind up both the local trail building collective and the FC.
b) I'll probably join the local roadie club when I go back home in October, then again, I'll probably not pay up unitll next year as this one's almost over, and no one's ever satisfactionarily (sp?) explaind to me why I have to pay to ride in a roadie club.
c) I'll be shouting "arrrrgggg" accross the Berkshire/Surrey border with the Trolls, who seem like a propper MTB club at a reasnoble cost (free).
