COVID-19 Guidelines for Cycling in Tasmania

Current as of 30th September 2020

After nearly three months of very restricted cycling activity, Cycling Tasmania is thrilled to have been advised that Stage Three easing of restrictions will allow sporting activities to be permitted based on Level C of the AIS Framework for Rebooting Sport.

What does this mean for cyclists?

  • Gathering limits will be 1000 people (including athletes and support staff) in an undivided space outdoors.
  • Gathering limits will be 250 people in an undivided space in indoor premises, or a maximum of one person per 2 m² under the density limit, whichever is less.
  • Full training can commence.
  • Full competition can commence.
  • Change rooms can be used and other shared facilities.

Bunch Rides

Cycling Tasmania is pleased to announce that bunch rides can recommence.  However, please ensure bunches are limited to a maximum of 20 riders, you are familiar with the Code of Conduct for Cyclists and you do not attend rides if feeling unwell with cold or flu like symptoms.

Organised Training Sessions

Organised outdoor and indoor training sessions can be conducted.  However, it is vital to understand that we must continue to abide by the above overarching principles.

Events

Cycling Australia, in consultation with the member states, has created guides for participants, spectators and facilitators. These should be adhered to with the above as reference points.

Please note: Cycling Tasmania has received approval from Communities, Sport and Recreation Tasmania to conduct a brief outdoor presentation promptly at the conclusion of events. 

Members should become familiar with these expectations prior to participating in a session and we strongly encourage you to download the COVIDSafe app.
