Best Cyclist of All Time?
The League is switching to preferential voting for the upcoming Board Elections. To test out our new system, we thought it would be fun to vote for the best cyclist of all time. This will be the same method we will use for the 2011 Board elections and allows each member to have their voice heard clearly — and ensures that our board members have the support of our national audience.
Here’s how it works:
1. A member logs in and votes on www.bikeleague.org, ranking all the cyclists in order of preference.
2. The cyclist with the least number of first votes is eliminated. Votes for that cyclist are redistributed according to the voters’ second choices.
3. Once again, the cyclist with the least number of votes is eliminated, and those votes are then spread among the remaining cyclist by who the voter chose second (or third, if their second choice has already been eliminated).
4. This process continues until there is just one cyclist remaining. Stay tuned to see who the best cyclist is – ever. We will post the results online and in the next issue of American Bicyclist.
