Saddleworth Rotary and Clarion Cycle Club are once again running the Father’s Day Turnpike challenge, a 25 mile bike ride into the dramatic scenery of the Pennine moors.  The ride is fully supported with roaming Clarion riders and a van. There is a half way refreshments point  and at the end of the ride there is Joe Castles famous meat and potato or cheese and onion pie washed down with lashings of tea.  What a way to start Fathers day!
