Easter Meets - 114th meet 2009 Ramsbottom

The biggest MUST-DO in the Clarion is the annual Easter Meet. It's a packed weekend of relaxation and riding. You choose how much of each you do.

Easter is April 10th to 13th - 2009

Start planning now for the 2009 Easter Meet in Ramsbottom, organised by Peter Roscoe and Bob Duckworth, local lads who know the area.

The photo here shows the Old Mill Hotel which is the venue for all functions, plus the annual conference.

The hotel has a Spa Pool, Sauna, Steam Room, Jacuzzi so you can pamper yourself after or instead of a long ride in the hills of Pendle, Waddington and Bowland Forest.
