Cycling Ulster held the official presentation of their new provincial squad kit and support car at the Corick Country House Hotel in Clogher, Co. Tyrone yesterday (Thursday). O’Reilly Stewart Solicitors have renewed their sponsorship of the Cycling Ulster kit for 2019-20 after having also been sponsors for the previous two years. Pactimo clothing company have also partnered with the organisation to offer the top-quality clothing at a reduced rate as well as providing a webshop for the public to buy replica kit. Donnelly Group has added to the resources of Cycling Ulster for this season by supplying a car which has been utilised by Ulster teams in the competition already this season and will also be used to support promoters of major events in the province.
Speaking following the presentation, Cycling Ulster Chairman, Tommy McCague said: “Cycling Ulster are working hard to support and develop cycling in the province in many areas. “We are grateful to our sponsors such as O’Reilly Stewart Solicitors and Donnelly Group who have backed us with our new provincial kit and new support vehicle. “This type of support is vital to help develop our riders competing at national and international events and has already benefitted riders representing Ulster in the road and off-road events. “The presentation provided us with an opportunity to outline the tremendous effort that is being made by volunteers across the province to develop all aspects of the sport, from developing rider skills at the Tommy Givan track in Belfast or through BMX Fundamentals programmes to increase female participation with the Women on Wheels programme. “The Safer Cycling Project with the PSNI and the local Policing and Community Safety Partnerships is a highlight that has already proved successful in gaining resources for clubs and raising awareness for all cyclists on our roads. “This is an exciting time for Cycling Ulster and we look forward to continuing to work to develop and grow all aspects of the sport in the time ahead.”
