Covid-19 Update : October 6th 2020

From October 7th until midnight October 27th all of Ireland moved to Level 3 in the “Plan for Living with COVID-19”.

 During this time:


All club training spins and events can only take place within the confines of Louth.


The maximum group size is 15 (this is line with NPHET/Government and Cycling Ireland guidelines).


Coffee stops can only take place outdoors as indoor seating in cafes is no longer allowed.


Social gatherings are not permitted and as a result, coffee stops on spins need to be carefully managed in line with the procedures of the cafe. Cafes are restricted outdoors to a total of 15 customers so again small group size is easier to manage in this situation.


Where a group decide to avail of take away facilities then social distancing in pairs (2 family units) is recommended during a coffee stop. This is in line with the requirement to restrict external meetings to one other household.


Any club member who is medically vulnerable and those over 70 are advised to exercise judgment in deciding if they wish to engage with others and activities outside the home for the 3 week period.


Our objective as a club is to create a safe and supportive environment for all members who wish to continue cycling during the level 3 period and also do our best to keep our friends, family and the public well. Participating in club activities during this level 3 period is a personal choice and anyone is free not to participate in club activities if they feel uncomfortable to do so.


We would ask members to continue to observe the following until further notice:


If at all possible, can you please stick to the same people in your groups, just in case of the need for a traceability exercise.


Please continue to observe the Government advice regarding hygiene and social distancing.




We ask that before participating in a group activityall members are required to complete the following steps:



Before each cycle, complete a  Self-Assessment Personal Screening Questionnaire.
(This takes 1 minute to complete).


To assist with contact tracing, Road Captains are requested to record the members in their group using the Cycling Ireland Booking System.


To further enhance our contact tracing, we ask that each Road Captain take a photograph of the group and send it to our COVID-19 Liaison Officer, Gerry Mc Crory  (087 4114037).


Many thanks to everyone for your continued support and cooperation.


Cuchulainn Committee.
