Phase 3 of the Covid-19 plan which came into effect on the 29th of June 2020 allows for an accelerated return to road cycling events, however, certain guidelines still apply and we would ask all club members to ensure they follow these guidelines.

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 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.

Group Events

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.

Booking System

In order to participate in group activities we would ask all members to use the booking system below, developed by cycling ireland, before joining any group spin or race.
