Papers and reference
Cyclecraft, published by The Stationery Office, is the definitive guide to safe and enjoyable cycling for both adults and children. Whether you are new to cycling, looking to extend your skills, or wanting to know how best to teach your children to cycle, Cyclecraft offers practical advice on how to ride a bike confidently and safely in modern traffic conditions.
Cyclecraft is closely associated with Bikeability, the National Cycle Training Standard, for which it is the recommended course book and required reading by cycle training instructors. This edition of Cyclecraft has been thoroughly revised and extended, in part to reflect experience gained through implementation of the National Standard.
The author of Cyclecraft, John Franklin, is a consultant and registered Expert Witness on cycling skills and safety and was a member of the reference group that set up the National Standard.

Cyclecraft is endorsed by The Association of Bikeability Schemes (TABS; the trade body for cycle training providers), CTC (the national cycling charity) and individual cycle training organisations, including Cycle Training UK and LifeCycle UK.
