Saddleworth Clarion are please to present the BOWLAND - SADDLEWORTH AUDAX, our 200km hilly Randonnee which takes place on Sunday 13th July 2014, starting at 8.00 am at Denshaw Village Hall, Ripponden Road, Denshaw, Saddleworth, OL3 5SJ.  From the Junction Inn on the 5 ways crossroads, this is 150m up the A672 Ripponden road on the right.

 After many years in the care of Don Black, Saddleworth Clarion have taken over the running of the Saddleworth Audax series.  You will find that we have retained the challenging but rewarding routes that characterized these rides but with the added bonus of the Clubs Best Cake competition for you to help judge at the end which should ensure there is plenty of cake to go round.

 A scenic tour over the Pennines to Settle, return over the Bowland Fells with great views of the Three Peaks and then crossing Pendle Hill.  With 4400 metres of climbing and 4.5 Audax Altitude points, this is a challenging event, but there is a reasonable time allowance for completion.  The minimum speed required is 14.3 kph and the maximum speed allowed is 30 kph.

 Brief route details are as follows:

Denshaw, Sowerby Bridge via Buckstones, Luddenden (Info Control), Oxenhope, Barnoldswick, Settle (Café), Wray (Info Control), Slaidburn (Café), Chatburn, Newchurch in Pendle, Briercliffe (Info Control), Todmorden, Hollingworth Lake, Milnrow, Moorcock, Denshaw.

 For those interested in the history of the Clarion Movement there is also the opportunity to take a brief diversion down Jinny Lane in Newchurch in Pendle to visit the Clarion House Tea Rooms
