for good practice (recommended and desired measures) for organising cycling events during the

general risk-reduction strategy, knowing that there are no zero risks in the prevention of infectious
diseases in general and of COVID-19 in particular;
- this document should be considered a “living” document, likely to evolve
according to new knowledge and new advances in the field of biotechnology, especially for COVID19 testing.
