Once again the David McCall Foundation has come to the fore to support grassroots cycling in Ulster with the announcement that they will help subsidise this weekend's Women's Residential camp in the Mournes. The camp, organised by Cycling Ulster's MTB Commission Chair, Ciara MacManus will cater for both road and off road women. The event is being held in the Meelmore Lodge which has excellent accommodation faclities. A number of women have signed up for the full residential but there is the option for other women to attend on either Saturday or Sunday only. The event is also supported by Cycling Ulster and Sport NI.
