Covid19 updated 11/09/2020

Recommended Posts

Following the guidance update from the Scottish Government yesterday (10/09/2020), Scottish Cycling has confirmed the latest position regarding cycling activity and all of our individual responsibilities before, during and after each activity. 


The updated route-map clearly states - the changes to meeting socially do not apply to services or activities that are already exempt from these restrictions and have been permitted to open subject to their own guidance such as organised sport.
Scottish Cycling has had this confirmed this morning by sportscotland, so clubs can continue to run their activities in line with the previous guidance published on the 24th August. 
The key points now which will be reinforced are: 
  • The wider societal rules apply before and after club activity. Clubs must reinforce to members that this means a maximum of 6 people from 2 households, indoors and outdoors. This also applies to cafe stops, so please consider this when planning club activities. 
  • It is more important than ever that sport demonstrates to the Scottish Government that we are committed to running our activities within the agreed guidance. At present, this means:
    • All clubs should have appointed a Covid-19 Coordinator 
    • This Covid-19 Coordinator should be known to Scottish Cycling 
    • The Covid-19 Coordinator should have completed the mandatory sportscotland e-learning  and evidenced completion of this 
  • The club should have risk assessed its activities and made members aware of any mitigating measures in place 
  • Scottish Cycling has emphasised to sportscotland that this exemption to organised sport needs to be more clearly communicated by Government, to ensure that clubs are not confronted by members of the public, who may rightly think, that we are not complying with the government guidance.
