National Clarion Cycling Club, not to be confused with National Clarion CC 1895
Our National Clarion Cycling Club first met in 1894 and by Easter 1895 the National Clarion Cycling Club was established and we have been in constant unbroken operation since then. In these years we only missed one Easter Meet in 1918 which was quite understandable.
We want to make it clear to everyone who reads this that the National Clarion Cycling Club (this one, running since 1895) is not the same as another organisation which calls itself National Clarion Cycling Club 1895 (which was founded in 2006). You may find this other club extolling the origins of the original club, using its logos and name, as well as using the suffices of ‘North Lancs Union’ and more recently ‘Southern Union’, but it is not this club.
Due to historic and political sympathies, a number of our members and friends are also members of the ‘other’ club, but we wish it to be known that it is not in any way affiliated to, or representative of this, the original National Clarion Cycling Club.
People who are thinking of joining the National Clarion Cycling Club often have a few questions they want to ask us before joining or coming out on one of our rides.
