More from Swiftsure in The Clarion 16 March 1895

Blackburn have made a start with their Clarion C.C. fourteen members having already given in their names. A Clarion C.C. is proposed for Wigan and all interested in its formation are asked to attend a meeting to be held for that purpose at the Ropemakers Arms, Caroline Street, Wallgate, on Saturday, 23 inst. at 3 p.m.

Liverpool Clarion C.C meet at Newsham Park Gates every Sunday morning at 10 a. m. until further notice

The C.C.C Manchester and district have their run next week to Lynn. I hope that even those who don't intend to journey any further will turn up at the meeting place, Trafford Bar.


Nelson has formed the Clarion Cycling Club and will be glad to arrange meets with any other clubs which have not yet completed their list.

The following week – 23 March 1895 – Swiftsure reported

referred to the new monthly paper the Scout, which will be issued on the 30th inst.

It will contain a list of the clubs, their officers, rules etc and more
particularly their fixtures for April
