3.3. The National Standard for Cycle Training
The National Standard for Cycle Training (referred to throughout the guide as the National Standard) is a set of rules and guidelines to help everybody cycle safely and responsibly.
The National Standard covers:
- all ages and abilities
- all types of cycles
- all places where cycling is permitted
- all weather and traffic conditions
- all times of day and night
We have used the National Standard as the foundation for this guide, as well as for the Activity Templates and Ride Guide. Any cycling activity described in these documents is fully in line with the National Standard and makes use of its core functions and routines. Please note that we have adapted some of the language to help you deliver your training in a way that riders of all ages can understand.
