Cycling South Africa has released guidelines to aid cyclists in the transition to Level 3 of the national lockdown, which went into effect yesterday.
“With the nationwide institution of Level 3 from June 1, we would like to encourage all cyclists to ensure that they are aware of the regulations and abide by them at all times,” a statement on the governing body’s website read.
Cycling SA was still awaiting clarification on the 5km regulation as there had been no clear guidance on the matter, it said.
The body asked cyclists to work together, be responsible and adhere to the regulations to ensure that they were beyond reproach.
Summary of Level 3 regulations relevant to cycling:
• Exercise is permitted daily from 6am to 6pm.
• Face masks should be used in public.
• Organised group rides may not take place and cyclists are urged to keep numbers to a minimum. If unsure, consult police for clarity on numbers.
• Group training or events not permitted unless permission is obtained from government or Cycling SA.
• The use of roads and public MTB trails are permitted for exercise.
