29th June 2020

Cycling Ireland welcomes the revised Roadmap for Reopening Society and Business, with most activity now being moved to Phase 3, beginning on Monday June 29th. The acceleration of the Roadmap has been made possible thanks to the progress made by the Irish people in supressing the virus and keeping transmission levels low.


The announcement has allowed for an accelerated return of club activities and events however we must proceed with caution and an acute awareness of our own personal responsibility. Sport Ireland have launched a Covid19 eLearning Course which all event organisers, club officials and members are asked to complete prior to engaging in group cycling activities.


Club training and racing can now return from June 29th once strict protocols are adhered to. Guidelines developed by Cycling Ireland in conjunction with the Sport Expert Group and UCI are available to clubs wishing to organise group training rides and club competitions during Phase 3. A Cycling Ireland Contact Tracing Sign on/Booking system has been developed to assist clubs with meeting government’s contact tracing requirements.


Open events will return from July 17th to allow sufficient time for event organisers to implement the necessary protocols and provide athletes with adequate time to prepare for competition. A revised calendar will be made available next week with online registration through the Cycling Ireland events system a requirement for contact tracing purposes. Guidance for event organisers can be viewed below and our events team are available to assist you through this process.


While group training activities and events are returning, Covid-19 remains a highly contagious and debilitating virus, and in some cases a fatal one. Members, clubs, and event organisers should consider their own circumstances and assume personal responsibility when deciding to partake in group activities.


Government support for sport sector


Cycling Ireland like many sports governing bodies and businesses, has faced significant financial challenges due to the Covid-19 pandemic and resulting loss in revenue. The announcement that a funding package has been approved by Government to support the sport sector is welcome news and demonstrates the value to communities and society that sport delivers.


In publishing the next phase of the Roadmap to Return, Cycling Ireland Chief Executive Matt McKerrow said:


"We’re pleased to see a schedule for the return of club activities and events. We’d like to say a resounding thank-you to the cycling community members, volunteers, clubs and sponsors – thanks for your engagement with our online activities, thanks for your patience and adherence with the guidelines to date, and thank you to those who’ve contributed and will contribute to the combined effort required ahead as club activities and events resume.”


"We’d also like to acknowledge the support and guidance from government, Sport Ireland and Sport NI which has been invaluable through this period."
