While it might seem very early the Executive of Cycling Ulster would like to hear from any clubs interested in promoting any of our Ulster Championships in 2016. We have a meeting in June and would like to be able to approve the events at that meeting in order to include them in 2016 calendar when it opens in September. This will allow the calendar co-ordinator to close off certain dates and allow club promoters to see when the Championships are on to avoid clashes.

This did not discourage the large number of Youth riders who turned up or the women and 50 Plus Masters who were also racing in the morning events.
In the afternoon there were two races on offer, namely a combined A1 to A3 race and a separate A4 race.… Read more

It is not surprising to those who know the club as they have never sat on their laurels in their sixteeen year history.… Read more
