CYCLING

There have been many questions on this subject

The law states

"Activities in open spaces, spaces and public roads, or spaces and private roads similar to public roads:

Cycling, motorcycling, motoring and similar routes, except those intended for the activity of high-performance athletes"

THIS INCLUDES INDIVIDUALS CYCLING ALONE OR IN PAIRS FOR EXAMPLE

SITUATION REGARDING CYCLING
We have received many enquiries concerning this subject in respect of the legislation, which says
4 – "Activities in open spaces, spaces and public roads, or spaces and private roads similar to public roads:
Cycling, motorcycling, motoring and similar routes, except those intended for the activity of high-performance athletes".


WE HAVE CLARIFIED THIS AND ACCORDING TO A SENIOR GOVERNMENT SOURCE this MEANS "NO CYCLING" BY INDIVIDUALS OR PAIRS, as well as groups.


NOTE THIS ONLY APPLIES TO LEISURE ACTIVITIES. PLEASE READ IN CONJUNCTION LAW . IF YOU NEED TO CARRY OUT TRAVELLING FOR THE REASONS GIVEN IN THE DECREE LAW SUCH AS GOING TO SHOPS ETC THEN YOU CAN DO SO.

 

Can I cycle to supermarket, bank, pharmacy etc?

Which appears to contradict Article 1.3.2 of the Act that brought in the restrictions which states one of the permitted activities is;
"Short-term trips for the purpose of physical activity, the exercise of collective physical activity being prohibited".

Which is what the Federação Portuguesa de Ciclismo has been telling everyone.
