Covid-19 response

Level 1:

With the move to Level 1, track and road events are returning to normal. Please note though that the track schedule has been tweaked, so some squads have different description, coaches, or time slots from last season.

Guidelines for exercise under Level 1:

Although limited numbers and social distancing are things of the past under Level 1, please keep the following in mind:
*Keep a diary of where you were and when, so it is possible to contact trace should there be a second wave of Covid-19 infections.
*Please maintain good hygiene - go to the back of the group before clearing your nose. Better yet, take a hankerchief, blow your nose, and dispose of appropriately at home. 

ILT Stadium Southland and SIT Zero Fees Velodrome: 

Stadium Southland has returned to regular hours. There are no limits to the number of riders as any track sessions, although we still require registration through Webscorer to ensure contact tracing and to help our coaches plan their sessions.

Stadium access: 

Access to the velodrome is now possible through the velodrome entrance for those with a swipe card. Those without a swipe card should still use the main entrance of Stadium Southland. If would like to get a swipe card, please contact the Cycling Southland office.
