Clarion gathering June

Post by Sweep »

This

https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/clarion- ... 8951200357

Appears, curiously, to be promoted by a London group.

Anyone know anything much about it?

Can anyone turn up?

I'm neither a past or current member of the Clarion though know that place well and am interested in the event.

From your link
Naturally, all other non-Clarion cyclists and walkers will be most welcome on the day.

Just to bump this up in the hope of somebody seeing it with more info, the general idea of an organisation like the Clarion celebrating its roots seems normal to me. Older readers will remember that the Cyclists' Touring Club used to organise the annual York Rally, in spite of its headquarters being in Surrey.

I think the London Clarion is just publicising the event. It's held at the Nelson Clarion House and is organised by local volunteers like Sue Nike and Charles Jepson. More about it here https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2022 ... s-cyclists and

Yep but it's roots are in Harrogate.
