The National Standard

“The National Standard for Cycle Training (the ‘National Standard’) is a statement of competent cycling and cycling instruction. It describes the skills and understanding needed to cycle safely and responsibly, and to enable others to cycle.

The National Standard describes the different ‘roles’ involved in cycling and cycling instruction. Each role is made up of ‘units’, and each unit has one or more ‘elements’. These elements describe competent cycling and cycling instruction in detail.”

From ‘The National Standard for Cycle Training’

The National Standard provides the learning outcomes for the three different Bikeability Levels, as well as the expectations for Instructors and those who deliver training to them.

It’s important to note that The National Standard is not the same as Bikeability but does provide the general framework that the Bikeability Scheme is built around.
