Sharon Laws Sportive

We regret that the Sharon Laws Sportive 2020 has been cancelled due to the coronavirus outbreak.

Our annual cycle route across the Cotswolds is inspired by the life of former student and cycling champion, Sharon Laws, who died of cancer aged 43 in 2017. It would have been the third year of the Sportive, a celebration of the 43 years of Sharon’s amazing life and the sport she loved so much.

The Cotswold School Cycling Club

This year, The Cotswold School invites you to take part in a celebration of cycling throughout July, the month of Sharon’s birth. If you would like to raise money, we suggest donating to Kate’s Home Nursing or The Cotswold School, which are the usual beneficiaries of The Sharon Laws Sportive – but there might be another charity you wish to support.

Join The Cotswold School Cycling Club to log the miles you cycle.

Help us reach the collective goal of 4,300 miles

We hope you will use ‘43’ as a basis for your cycling goal and raise money for a charity of your choice. Could you cycle 43 miles in a month? In a week? Or will you share the goal of 430 miles across your whole family? Could you cycle for 43 minutes per day or plan a 4.3-mile daily route?

Set your goal, track your distance and upload your miles whenever you ride.
