Cycling New Zealand are committed to providing the safest environment for all our cycling community who participate, support and engage with our sport at a national championship level.
Being vaccinated means that more cycling activities and events can be delivered around NZ, without the risk of them being cancelled due to traffic light restrictions and can provide confidence to those attending your event that you have considered their safety in your planning.
To enable the best chance for the events to go ahead, Cycling New Zealand will be operating all the 2022 National Championship events as “My Vaccine Pass” events. As such, all participants, team support, officials, volunteers and spectators will be required to hold a valid My Vaccine Pass.
This decision, while it hasn’t been taken lightly, has been made to support the health and wellbeing of all those within our cycling community, supports the requirements of a number of our host venues and will also give the events the best chance of going ahead as the country moves forward with the Covid Protection Framework.
To provide clarity and certainty for all our community, this decision will apply to all the 2022 National Championship events.
In the case of a host region being in RED, the events specific Covid response Plan will determine any actions required which may include a revised programme or schedule (to support the 100 person limit at one time), postponement or cancellation with any decisions to maintain the integrity of the National Championship status.
