Cascade Bicycle Club’s tumultuous annual meeting on Thursday did little to further the club’s progress in soothing the Chuck Ayers-David Hiller imbroglio.
The board of directors fumbled a golden opportunity to calm the waters by getting the membership fully aired and drawing some talking points from the gathering for moving forward. (We’d suggested breaking into small groups and having leaders report back to the plenary). Instead, heated exchanges prevailed.
So what next? There’s a movement afoot to bust the board. A few good candidates — notably SeattleLikesBikes’ Michael Snyder — have emerged, but it will take some persistent organizing between now and the board election to clear the air and set a solid agenda for the club.
In the meantime, here’s a sampler of recent coverage:

Cascade’s message board reflects little confidence in the board of directors.
