The Origins of the Clarion Cycling Club and cycling in the 1890s
37. Clarion cycling continues to spread as the first Meet approaches
From 'Swiftsure' Cycling Notes, The Clarion, 30 March 1895
The following will show that the Potteries Clarion C.C are all alive and ki… Or rather pedalling.
As many of your readers seem to be unaware of the existence of the Potteries Clarion C.C., will you allow me to state that there is such an organisation, and that all those who are desirous of joining should do so at once. Speakers are particularly needed, as it has been decided to do as much outdoor work as possible. Our secretaries's names and addresses are: W. Lawton, 40, Paddock Street, Hanley; and J. Wildigg. 127, Keelings Lane, Northwood.
We intend to arrange our runs monthly, so we shall be able to meet other Clarion C.C.s
