Group Description

The Clarion Cycling Club was founded in 1894/5 as an offshoot of The Clarion weekly socialist newspaper edited by charismatic journalist Robert Blatchford. Unlike other Clarion organisations, the Cycling Club survived through the 20th and into the 21st centuries. For more information see the national website

The Brighton and Hove Section was formed at the end of February 2004. An earlier Brighton section disappeared in the 1950s(?). It included one of our current members. At the moment we are concentrating on organising fortnightly rides for those of us who don't feel up to longer and more strenuous ones. Usually these involve meeting at a railway station. For this our basic principles are:

Start at a relatively civilised time
Avoid busy roads, long or steep hills as far as possible
Distances of 20-25 miles (or less particularly in winter months)
Return to Brighton station before dark in the winter.

Group Rules

No Spam or advertising please, only photos of relevance to Brighton and Hove Clarion Cycling Club and their rides, socials and participation in political rallies.
