Event Application Process

All events, including club events, must receive a permit and use the Cycling Ireland Online Entry System. The benefits of the new system are that it removes cash and the handling of money, entry fees move seamlessly into your stripe account and you have a list of all your entries before event day.

Event Licence fees (one Day Licence) are also collected directly at the time of entry and sign-on sheets are not required.  This is also a mandatory requirement in relation to COVID-19 and contact tracing if the need arises. Unfortunately, if your event has not received a permit and is not available for booking via our online system it cannot avail of event insurance.

4. Submit Risk Assessment:

A Risk Assessment must be submitted up to 30 days before your event. A template is available to download below in the Documents section. This template is the preferred file/format to use, although you may use your own file. 


You will need to complete all the sheets coloured Green. The Route Details sheet has been improved to show expected arrival times at various points along the route based on projected speeds. Enter the projected speeds and the information for each step on the route (e.g. junctions) and the arrival times will be automatically calculated. Have a look at the Route Example to see how to complete the route details.


A Route Map sheet is now included where you must paste a map of the route. A route map is necessary for the Risk Assessment to be approved.


How to Upload a Risk Assessment

Please login to you Cycling Ireland Club Management. Select ‘Permit Management‘ and find your event. If your event has been Date Approved you will be able to click on ‘Upload Risk Ass.’ to upload the document.
