Every year, there are always concerns about the lack of events for women in the higher categories outside of the National Road Series. This year, the Road Series doesn’t start until May, so we thought that it would be useful to pull together the races open to elites, first, and second category riders so that you have them in one place.

Hopefully, you will see that there’s a decent programme leading up to Lincoln and the start of the Series. If you click on the name of the event, it will take you to the event on the British Cycling website.
