West Lothian Clarion 2011 Events

We've got a varied selection of events this year - from short hill climbs to all night rides and sportives and lots of racing in between.

The Easter Meet will be the highlight of the year with loads of different activities.

Stick the dates in your diary and plan your year of cycling! Support the organisers and try to enter and volunteer where possible.

There's also a spread of National Clarion (NC) events to enter too. They're a great opportunity to take part in historic championships, whether you're there for the atmosphere or challenging for a podium place. Each of the trophies have a story to tell with winners dating back to the 1930's in some cases. West Lothian already have some winner's from the past two seasons with Steve McCaw and Julie Dominguez picking up silverware in 2010

Most of the NC events are south of the border but our section is hosting the hill climb champs at Easter
