About our club

Clitheroe Clarion Cycling Club

Formed in 1923, Clitheroe Clarion is the oldest cycling club in Clitheroe. In 2017, following a period of inactivity since the 1990's, a few former and long standing members along with some new members decided to reboot the club. We now have over 30 active members and are growing all the time.

Situated in the heart of the beautiful Ribble Valley, Clitheroe is the perfect place to start a ride. With the dramatic Forest of Bowland on our doorstep and beyond that the stunning Yorkshire Dales, we are spoilt for choice when it comes to fantastic rides with breathtaking views.

We meet every weekend at the Castle Gates at the top of Moor Lane in Clitheroe for our Social ride, on a Sunday every weekend of the month except one weekend of the month where we meet on a Saturday instead (Please check runs lists as times vary). We have a club runs list which can be found on our club website or our Public Facebook group. We update this monthly, but rides may be altered depending on the weather that day. There is always a cafe and lunch stop so please bring money (unless you have brought your own food). Those who prefer a shorter ride may wish to ride to the first cafe stop and return home.

This year the club is looking forward to developing a small racing orientated section within the club.

The Clitheroe Clarion is a section of The National Clarion CC
