With the nationwide institution of Level 3 from 1 June 2020, we would like to encourage all cyclists to ensure that they are aware of the regulations and abide by them at all times.
We’ve had many queries regarding the regulations – we hope that this provides some clarity.
Exercise is now permitted between the hours of 06h00 and 18h00 daily.
A person must when in a public place, wear a cloth face mask or a homemade item that covers the nose of mouth, or another appropriate item to cover the nose and mouth.
The current regulations do not give clear guidance if the 5km regulation is still in place. We will continue to engage with government to seek further clarification.
Clubs and cycling organisations must be aware that no organised group rides may take place under Level 3. There is no directive from government as to what is considered an ‘organised group’, but we urge you to keep numbers to a minimum, or alternately consult with your local SAPS for clarity.
No group training or events permitted for professional unless the facility or event organiser obtains permission from government or Cycling South Africa.
The use of roads and public MTB trails are permitted for exercise. MTB bike parks, SANPARK trails, track and BMX facilities may open subject to meeting Level 3 regulations as provided by government.
A reminder that the lockdown level for hotspot areas will be reviewed by government every 2 weeks, and any part of the country could be returned to alert levels 4 or 5 if the spread of infection is not contained.
Let’s all work together, be responsible and adhere to the regulations to ensure that cyclists are above reproach.
