British Cycling Announces Dates For The 2016 British Cycling Women’s Road Series
Won by Nicola Juniper in 2015, the series will begin in the Isle of Man on 10 April with the Manx International GP Feminin, a new addition to the calendar. The nine-event series will then go on to the Tour of the Reservoir Two-Day before making a return to the popular Cheshire Classic which in 2016 will be contested on a new course taking in Overton Hill and Delamere Forest.
Two new races in Lincoln and Newton Longville will feature for the first time, while the Essex Giro Two-Day, Curlew Cup, Otley GP and Ryedale GP all make a welcome return to the series.
British Cycling’s cycle sport and membership director, Jonny Clay, said:
“It’s fantastic to see such a great series of events for the Women’s Road Series in 2016. As well as some brand new races it’s also pleasing to see some of the old favourites returning for another year.
