About London Clarion Cycle Club

London Clarion Cycle Club is a friendly London Cycling Club with members all across London. We organise a wide variety of club rides throughout the year and we are known for being an inclusive, relaxed and friendly group of London Cyclists.


London Clarion Cycle Club was established in May 1895 this makes us one of the oldest London Cycling Clubs. The Clarion motto, borrowed from William Morris, is “Fellowship is Life”, thus the aim of the London Clarion Cycle Club is to promote goodwill and fellowship through cycling in a tradition started by groups of members who would cycle out to socialist meetings and distribute literature, whilst often also enjoying a glass of good ale.

We are political; generally socialist, anti-fascist and feminist. We are a collective; administered entirely by volunteers, operated on the basis of mutual assistance and the exchange of useful and trivial Information. We are a cycling club; passionate about cycling, using it as a medium to foster relationships and enjoyment. We are a community; some of our members don’t cycle but support our ethos. We are not a specialist road racing or mountain bike club but rather a club that welcomes all types of cycling ie Road, Leisure, Touring, MTB or Beginners.

Each year a number of our members take part in events such as the Dunwich Dynamo, the Dieppe Raid 'Tour des Trois Vallees' in France, Clarion Sunday at the last Clarion House near Nelson in Lancashire and various days away. 

Our principles can be summed up by the slogan of the French revolution: Liberty, Equality, Fraternity. 

London Clarion Cycle Club is affiliated to CTT (Cycling Time Trials), the London Cycling Campaign and all of our members are affiliated to the National Clarion Cycling Club 1895. 


London Clarion members also have the option of additionally affiliating to the National Clarion Cycling Club who include a 3rd party liability insurance.
