As events begin to open up, we ask all cyclists who plan to participate, to be up to date with the COVID-19 safety procedures which will affect riders on race day. 

Some basic things to consider:  

  • You will require either a valid CSA membership to be able to participate in any sanctioned cycling events. 

  • In order for an event to be sanctioned, event organizers are required to do the necessary risk categorization incorporating both the SASREA and COVID-19 regulations.

  • No Spectators permitted.

  • No gathering pre or post-event – riders are to arrive, ride and leave the event immediately after completion.

  • No catering will be provided.

  • No prize giving will take place.


  • Events limited to < 50 participants.

  • Individual timed rides only, no bunch riding is permitted.

    • Road cycling

    • MTB XCO

    • MTB DHI

  • BMX and Track cycling training only. 


  • Events limited to < 300 people (participants and staff on the day)

  • Cyclists in batches of < 50 with start times staggered to minimize contact.

  • Permitted small batched events

    • Road cycling

    • Road criterium races

    • MTB XCO

    • MTB DHI

    • MTB Enduro

    • Track cycling

    • BMX

We are aware that there are a number of mass participation (300+ staff and participants) events being advertised to the public but we emphasise that no mass participation events are permitted under Level 3

We are continuously engaging with government and key role players to work towards re-introducing mass participation and MTB Marathon racing under reduced lockdown levels. 

We strongly suggest members only participate in events sanctioned by our provincial affiliates. Each provincial body is responsible for sanctioning event in their provinces, and members should contact their province directly for confirmation of sanctioned events.

In addition to the sanction status of an event, we strongly urge members to check the refund policy in protection of any event not proceeding as planned.

For the most recent regulations as per the DSAC, please see National Gazette No.43507.


Following an ExCo meeting in May, the committee took the decision to embark on cost cutting measures until the industry has stabilised. As of 1 August 2020, the physical head office of the federation will be closed as we move to ‘Go Digital’. In addition, we have reduced the working hours of our staff members as we plan to modernise and optimise our services in the future.
