Community sport is set to return on 1 July in NSW. Riding outdoors, in groups of up to 10 with physical distancing in place has been allowed since 15 May.
With this now easing of restrictions, most normal community sport can resume, but physical distancing and hand hygiene are still essential.
It is not clear yet whether this includes mass participation events like Spring Cycle, but we will advise you as soon as we know more about what’s happening. We anticipate NSW Health will update the rules to clarify today’s announcement later this week.
Whether you ride in a group through the park, along a trail, down a mountain or on the road, it’s great to hear larger groups are now allowed. It is still important to maintain physical distances of at least 1.5 metres from people who don’t live in your household, to wash your hands and any shared equipment.
“A huge thank you to every rider for your contribution to reducing the spread of COVID-19,” said Bicycle NSW General Manager of Public Affairs, Bastien Wallace.
“We’re continuing to see more people riding bikes for transport and recreation, and pleased to see greater recognition of your needs by the government,” said Bastien.
Bicycle NSW encourages members to share our resources with new riders and friends.
