Cycling Ireland Covid19 Update – All events postponed on the Island 15.10.2020

The Government has published a framework for restrictive measures to guide Ireland over the short to medium-term in managing Covid-19.


The framework consists of 5 levels. The lower levels of the framework will be activated when there is a low incidence of the disease, with isolated outbreaks and low community transmission. The higher levels will be used to deal with higher incidences of the disease.


In a government announcement made on 5 October 2020, the entire country will be placed on level 3 of the framework effective at midnight tonight Tuesday 6 October. This restriction will remain in place for 3 weeks.

Level 3 – Republic of Ireland
Level 4 – Donegal, Cavan & Monaghan
Northern Ireland

Level 3 – Republic of Ireland


The key implications for Cycling Ireland’s approved events and activities are as follows.


Training

  • Outdoors: Non-contact training only in pods of up to 15 (exemption for professional/elite/inter-county sports/senior club championship).


Cycling Ireland club training sessions and approved activities can proceed provided government guidelines regarding maximum participant numbers are adhered to and riders stay within the county.

  • Indoors: Individual training only.


Matches and events

  • Professional Team riders (UCI) and Sport Ireland/Sport NI carded athletes
