About us 

Saddleworth Clarion Cycling Club is a Cycling UK affiliated group. We are a growing cycling club with 100+ members from the Saddleworth villages, Oldham, Tameside, and Kirklees and are a section of the National Clarion Cycling Club..

Saddleworth Clarion welcomes riders of all abilities to the club. We organise on and off road club rides and events for like- minded cyclists in and around the beautiful Pennine countryside of Saddleworth. Our aim is simple - to enjoy the full spectrum of cycling activities in the company of others, from the recreational through to the competitive. With experienced cyclists and newcomers alike, we share our experience, interests, and knowledge of routes and cafes for the benefit of all.
