The Real Federación Española de Ciclismo (Royal Spanish Cycling Federation) announced this weekend the rules for cycling in Spain in stages 1 and 2. These rules have been in force for both the club and amateurs since Monday, May 25th. RFEC stresses that this statement has been processed in recent weeks based on the interpretation of the various orders issued by the Boletín Oficial del Estado (Official Journal), so that there is no implicitly binding official information.
Outdoors activities are allowed in groups of up to 10 people and always at a safe distance. If this is not possible, a mask should be used.
Regarding federated athletes, who do not belong to the group of professional athletes, both elite athletes and high-performance athletes, may carry out training within the borders of the province in which the residence is located. They can train in open air spaces in the province where they do their sporting activities. Non-federated athletes can only train in their community.
The schedule for outdoor sports are: between 6 a.m. and 10 a.m. and between 8 p.m. and 11 p.m. It should be emphasized that the federated athlete may train twice a day, while the non-federated may only train once in one of the scheduled hours mentioned above. Any autonomy can change the schedule hours. In addition, elite athletes and high-level athletes have no time constraints.
The municipalities with less than 10,001 inhabitants and less than 100 inhabitants per square kilometer (with a few exceptions) have schedules for sports practice from 6:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. This program enables athletes to train in their own community and in neighboring communities under the same conditions.
Phase 2 (UPDATE 5/27/2020)
Areas in phase 2 may train in groups of up to 15 people outdoors, but always at a safe distance. If this is not possible, use a mask.
Both federation and elite athletes and /or high-performance athletes and non-federation athletes can train at any time within the boundaries of the province in which they live, except from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m.: schedule for people over 70 years.
The 1 km limit for adults, allowed for running or sporting activities, has been removed. The remaining rules for a walk with children under 14 years are also cancelled: one walk a day, one kilometer and one hour.
In summary, in areas that are in phase 2 of the de-escalation from Wednesday, sporting activities are allowed at any distance and several times a day.
