British Cycling GO Ride Events.

​​
Go-Ride is British Cycling’s development programme for young people. The programme provides a fun and safe way to introduce young riders to the world of cycle sport and provides a platform to improve bike handling skills.
Getting involved is easy, simply come along to the North Cotswold Cycling Club’s Go-Ride events, where young people will be able to sample the various cycle sport disciplines and start enjoying one of the fastest growing sports in the UK today under the instruction of our resident coaches John Michelbacher and Lesley Bray.

NCCC Go-Ride Programme:
For dates and venues of Go-Ride events please go to the Club calendar
Each session will consist of Go-Ride coaching from 09:30 to 10:30 (when we at the Far Peak site it will be from 10 to 11am), but please arrive 15 minutes prior to this to complete registration and bike checks. Timings are approximate and will vary slightly with weather, track conditions and the structure of the training. We reserve the right to cancel events due to adverse weather etc.

NCCC Go-Ride event takes place at the following two venues.
Fire Service College in Moreton-in-Marsh (access off A44, postcode GL56 0RH) on a range of traffic-free tarmac, woodland or grass circuits that will suit a range of road, mountain or hybrid bikes across the varied programme. On arrival please mention NCCC Go-Ride at the gate house, then take to the top of the estate via the main through road. Toilets are available in the Four Shires building on Firth Lane.

Far Peak, Northleach (access off the Fosseway, postcode GL54 3LJ). This facility provides excellent off road trails, while parents can relax at the excellent café facilities.
Registration and bike checks for each session commence 15 minutes prior to the start (e.g. 09:15). There is an initial joining fee of £5 to cover 2018 Junior membership of the North Cotswold Cycling Club, after your first session there will be a fee for each Go-Ride session of £3 per participant (the first session is free).

Please visit North Cotswold Cycling Club on the British Cycling website – or go directly to the Join Our Clubpage on the British Cycling website.

Please complete this joining process before attending a Go-Ride event. Would all parents/guardians please ensure that their children attending a Go-Ride event have:
a quality, well-fitting cycle helmet (children will not be permitted to participate otherwise);
a suitable sized bicycle that is in good working order;
appropriate clothing, suitable to cycling and to the weather conditions (e.g. gloves, hats, waterproofs or, just possibly, sunscreen when required!);
additional warm, dry clothing for periods between activities;
any medication they may require (e.g. inhalers – cycling is an energetic sport) along with a completed medical form;
a water bottle and snacks.

Parents are able to leave their children with the coaches and club officers (but must collect them promptly at the end of sessions and be contactable at all times), however, we encourage you to stay and participate, as volunteers are required to steward some coaching events and to enable us to extend the event to racing activities.
This is an open invitation event so please feel free to circulate widely to anyone who may be interested. If you have any questions or require additional information please contact please contact:
Rick Slark (rick@slark.com 07968 041687) or Andrew Bray (andrew0bray@hotmail.com 07469 201886).

 It is with great pleasure The Cotswold School announces The Sharon Laws Sportive in association with British Cycling.

Born in 1974, Sharon Laws, a former pupil of The Cotswold School, was a British professional cyclist who only turned professional at the age of 33, having previously competed in adventure racing and endurance mountain biking. She began riding on the road to train and it was at this time she was noticed and her ability confirmed. She quickly became part of the 2008 Summer Olympics cycling team in Beijing and also in 2008 she won the British National Time Trial Championships.
Other accreditations included:
Winning the Women’s 2012 Momentum 94.7 Cycle Challenge
Winning the 2012 British National Road Race Championships
Part of the Podium Ambition Pro Cycling’s squad for the 2016 season
Part of the ITV4 commentary team for the channel’s coverage of the 2017 Women’s Tour
Holding an MSc in Conservation and working as an environmental consultant to organisations including the British Government, the United Nations and for mining company Rio Tinto in Australia

In late 2016, Sharon was diagnosed with cervical cancer and from there underwent a year-long battle with the disease. She died on 16th December 2017.
In the run-up to the Tour of Britain that ran through Bourton-on-the-Water last September, Sharon kindly took time out from her treatment to inspire students at The Cotswold School with talks about a life in the professional cycling world.

Will Morgan, Principal comments, “Sharon was a lovely lady, a fantastic cyclist and good friend of the School. She even took the time out to speak to our children before heading to Cheltenham for radiotherapy a couple of hours later. Amazing support and dedication. We are delighted to be holding this event, in our 30th year, but we hope to hold as an annual event, as a long-lasting tribute to Sharon.”

Where: From The Cotswold School in Bourton-on-the-Water to the Rissingtons, Bledington, Milton-under-Wychwood, Burford, Windrush, Sherborne and back into Bourton-on-the-Water

Why: To raise funds for Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and for The Cotswold School – new community pavilion
