Easter weekend event calendar

What's on this weekend?

With arctic weather set to bite here in Britain over the unusually early Easter weekend, it looks like riders will be digging out their full winter kit before taking to the nation’s trails, tracks and highways. In the US, some cyclists will enjoy balmy weather with a handful of brevets and populaires scheduled throughout the country.

And for those hardy souls still seeking events at which to spectate or participate, here’s a list of some of the options you can choose from, together with a sprinkling of those happening further afield.
