The Ontario Cycling Association continues to fully support Cycling Canada’s response to the ongoing situation surrounding COVID-19.
As the Provincial and Federal governments continue to provide more information regarding the re-opening of various sectors, we will continue to provide updates to our members and partners regarding the status of cycling events.
Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Cycling Canada and our provincial and territorial cycling associations have been committed to making decisions in the interest of ensuring a safe sporting environment for our members and participants at all levels and in all parts of the country. While there are now varying signs of improvement in the pandemic across the country and some provinces are beginning to carefully ease COVID-19 restrictions, we feel that it is prudent at this time to extend the list of cancelled or postponed events on the national calendar to include all events originally scheduled on or before July 31st.
As our provincial and territorial cycling associations work through progressive return-to-sport protocols with their respective provincial governments and health authorities, we are working diligently and collaboratively with all organizers and stakeholders to develop an updated calendar by June 19th which would include national calendar events to be hosted between August 1st and November 30th.
Cycling Canada will assess the viability and status of each of these events on a case-by-case basis in collaboration with the host province and local public health authorities. It must be emphasized that if we cannot definitively ensure the safety of our participants, volunteers and host communities we will not host such national calendar events.
For an up-to-date list of cancelled or postponed events on the national calendar, please consult the event list on the Cycling Canada website. For more information regarding Cycling Canada recommendations, please consult our COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions
