HOW LEVEL 1 LOCKDOWN IMPACTS EVENTS AND COACHING

Following the President’s address on 28 February 2021, the country has been placed on Level 1 Lockdown as of 1 March 2021.

We are engaging with the Department of Sport, Art and Culture regarding mass participation events considering the following: 

  • Cycling is a non-contact sport.
  • Cycling is an outdoor activity with venues allowing for the circulation of non-contaminated air.
  • Except for track cycling and BMX, participants do not remain static and move from one area to another over multiple kilometres. 


As we have yet to receive feedback, the most recent adjustments relating to Level 1 Lockdown apply as follows:


EVENTS

Events are permitted with the following guidelines as per government regulations:

  • A maximum of 50% venue capacity may be used:
    • Limited to 100 people at an indoor venue.
    • Limited to 250 people at an outdoor venue.
  • The sanctioning certificates issued by CyclingSA will be subject to the Event Organiser obtaining approval from the SAPS, the municipality concerned and the landowner for the start, race route and finish venues.
  • Arrive to start/finish to leave policy is required to be in place and enforced.
  • Start/Finish Areas are proposed to be in separate areas to ensure no congregation takes place.
  • Event areas such as start, finish and registration must allow for a radius clearance of 1.5m per participant to ensure social distancing.
  • Masks/buffs remain compulsory as a safety precaution until 1min before the start and must be worn once the finish line has been crossed.
