Cycling Ulster Update – 19/05/20

Stormont have now moved into aspects of step 1 of their easing of lockdown restrictions which enables small groups from different households to meet outdoors while maintaining social distancing.

The rest of the province has therefore joined Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan who entered phase 1 of the Cycling Ireland Roadmap on Monday.

In accordance with the phased return of cycling activities on the island set out by Cycling Ireland this means a group of up to 4 people are permitted to cycle if social distancing can be safely maintained. Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan are restricted to staying within a radius of 5km of their home.

Cycling Ireland Announce Roadmap for Phased Return of Cycling Activities – 15/05/20

Following the recent release of plans on how to ease the restrictions by governments on the island of Ireland, a plan for the phased return of cycling activities is now available.

Cycling on an individual basis is currently the restriction with the added limitation of doing this within 5km radius of your home for residents in Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan.

The Cycling Ireland Roadmap sets out the various phases for the two jurisdictions with the specific dates set out by the Irish government applying to Cavan, Donegal and Monaghan and getting underway on Monday 18th May.

Stormont has not released dates for the steps it has set out to ease the restrictions. Progression through the stages will be made following advice to government. Cycling Ulster will update members through our website and social media of any changes to the restrictions as they are announced.

This document will be reviewed on an ongoing basis and Cycling Ulster will continue to engage with Cycling Ireland and other stakeholders in the time ahead.
