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.

Greater Sydney and Hunter

Stay-at-home orders will apply to the Hunter and Upper Hunter including Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, Maitland, Port Stephens, Cessnock, Dungog, Singleton and Muswellbrook from 5:00PM Thursday, 5 August for one week.

You must stay at home unless you have a reasonable excuse. A reasonable excuse is if you need to:

  • obtain food or other goods and services
  • travel for work or education (if you can't do it from home)
  • exercise and take outdoor recreation in groups of 2 or fewer
  • go out for medical or caring reasons.

Stricter restrictions apply to residents of the Blacktown, Campbelltown, Canterbury-Bankstown, Cumberland, Fairfield, Georges River, Liverpool and Parramatta local government areas. In those LGAs, you must stay within 5km of your home and wear a mask at all times outside your home.

For other parts of Greater Sydney, you must remain within your local government area or 10km of your home when shopping or exercising.

You must carry proof of address and a face mask when leaving your home. You must wear a face mask in all non-residential indoor premises and in outdoor settings where you cannot socially distance from others.

Masks are compulsory in all indoor non-residential settings, such as clubhouses.

Races, training sessions and other outdoor gatherings that involve more than 200 participants require a COVID-19 Safety Plan. Masks are compulsory at these outdoor events.

Racing is subject to the Cycling NSW Guide to Racing and Training in the COVID-19 Environment.

Organisers must keep a record of attendees.

General guidelines

If you are showing any symptoms of illness, or have visited a NSW Health case location, you may be required to get tested for COVID-19 and stay isolated until you receive further instructions from NSW Health.

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.
