Just to keep you posted on Clarion news during the hot and stormy August days, here are a few items that may interest you.
The National Clarion 50 mile champs was cancelled due to traffic lights on the course, and sadly it is too late to find an alternative event to run it on. Similarly, on the 28th of July, Duncan McLaren had to cancel the 25 mile champs in Cheshire due to heavily flooded roads...we shall however be looking to reschedule this event and will keep you informed.
Clarion 3-up TT Champs:
Right up until the night before we nearly had to change the course or cancel, but road works were completed on time, and the event was a huge success and members of Nottingham and Tuxford Clarion did a fabulous job on the day.
Fastest Clarion team was Nottingham Clarion C.C. of Anthony Jackson, Michael Cooke & Stewart Bates in a time of 54mins & 27 seconds
Fastest Womens team was Fenland Clarion C.C. of Mel Evans, Lindsay Clarke & Tonya Smith in a time of 1hr 06mins & 29 seconds
Full results will appear in the coming edition of Boots & Spurs.

Easter Meet plans for 2020
We now have an organising team put together, and are working on finding a suitable venue for 2020. The event location details will be hopefully announced in the forthcoming Boots & Spurs.
(note the National Clarion Easter Meet is not at Ashbourne in 2020).
If you would like to help the organisers and wish to offer your support in anyway, please get in touch.
Fingers crossed for some more good cycling weather this Summer and Autumn, enjoy the ride.
Yours in fellowship
