Covid-19 regulations have been further relaxed by the Northern Ireland Executive which will enable competitive events to take place from 23rd April. The implications for cycling clubs, members and activities are set out below.

From April 23:

Training (Clubs, Groups, and Individuals)

Outdoor sport organised by an affiliated club, individual or individuals will be extended to include squad training. Cycling Ireland recommends training groups are kept small.

Events (Races & Sportives)

Outdoor sport organised by a club, individual or individuals affiliated, with numbers not exceeding 100 and no spectators permitted can return. The figure includes your event organising team and volunteers. (80 participants maximum)

Events must strictly follow Cycling Ireland Covid-19 protocols and use the Cycling Ireland Permit and Online Booking System.

Important Information
