Pedal magazine questionnaire

The committee has to decide whether and how to publish future editions of the club's magazine "The Pedal" and it is looking for your views. The two main options are to produce a free, electronic version emailed to everyone or, as now, a commercially-printed version at a price to cover production costs. The committee thinks it is impractical to do both simultaneously.

Martyn Roberts, our interim magazine editor, has produced a good summary of our current situation. You can read it here. Note that Martyn's paper appears in a different browser tab/window, you will not lose your place in the questionnaire.

Following discussion, the committee is inclined to produce a commercially-printed edition twice a year and to provide an electronic copy in the magazine archive immediately prior to delivery of the next edition.

It wants to know your views, however, before making a final decision. Hence this survey.

We require you to answer only three simple questions, although there is scope to provide more information if you want. Required entries are highlighted in yellow.
