COVID-19 information

Last updated 19 August 2020

This page provides a brief summary of COVID-19 rules, restrictions and guidelines as they apply to the sport of cycling in NSW. It will be updated as information changes. This page is intended as a brief overview only.

Inter-regional mixing

From 19 August to 30 September, it is recommended that country clubs restrict events only to participants from clubs in their division, and metropolitan and metropolitan south/west clubs restrict events only to participants from metropolitan and metropolitan south/west clubs.

Group rides and training

Group rides and training sessions are restricted to a maximum of 20 participants (including riders, coaches and spectators) unless the organiser develops and follows a NSW Government COVID-19 Safety Plan, in which case the maximum is 500 participants.

This includes organised training sessions at velodromes.

Clubs and ride organisers should keep a record of all attendees in case contact tracing is required.

Overnight training camps should be avoided.

Racing

Racing is subject to the Cycling NSW Guide to Racing and Training in the COVID-19 Environment, including the need for a COVID-19 Safety Plan.

The maximum number of participants (including riders, officials, volunteers and spectators) is 500.

In accordance with Office of Sport requirements, race organisers must minimise spectator attendance at community sport events. It is recommended that spectators be limited to one parent or guardian per junior participant. Adult participants should attend events alone.

New racers can try racing for free with one of our #ReturnToRacing special offers.

Dunc Gray Velodrome

Dunc Gray Velodrome open for casual member training subject to the Dunc Gray Velodrome Training COVID-19 Protocol.

If you are showing any symptoms of illness, get tested and stay isolated.

If you have recently returned from Victoria or visited an identified COVID-19 hot spot, stay isolated.

Anyone participating in a gathering, include group rides and training, should download the COVIDSafe app.

Please maintain a physical distance of at least 1.5 metres from others and practise good hygiene, including washing your hands and covering your mouth and nose when you sneeze.
