The National Standards for Cycle Training set out the training and skills essential for making cycling trips in today's road conditions. The Standards, developed by over 20 organisations, are maintained by the custodian body for cycle training, the Cycle Training Standards Board (CTSB).
Members of the CTSB are the UK's leading bodies in road safety and cycling. By establishing National Standards, the Government is setting out a nationwide uniform programme of formal training, which will reassure parents in particular, that young people wanting to cycle have been instructed in the essential skills and procedures wherever they may live.
