    Does anyone fancy writing up a definitive list of all the cycling that will be shown during the Olympics? I'd give it a crack myself but in this life it's important to know ones strengths, and detailed and correct information gathering is not one of my strongest gifts :smile:

    No, but I can tell you that the road race tomorrow is on BBC Olympic 3 from 9:55am. For those with Virgin meeja, Freesat and Sky.

    It's difficult because of the 24 feeds (as well as BBC1/2/3 and BBC HD).

    If you tune to channel 550 on virgin (or others actually) it tells you selected schedules for the 24 feeds when off air.

    It's not finished yet. Unfortunately where that came from either the BBC haven't put in the stuff for their 'key' or simply I've missed the extra detail. Based on previous sporting events I think the former is most likely, but trying to find another source to fill it in (it exists, it is filling it in that's the problem). I'm sure they'll update that though. If I can I'll fill in which tv channels and stuff on it or urge someone to copy a bit of the list for a particular day and do the same.

    The most important thing to remember is it starts tomorrow. 2 days road (men's then women's), 2 days break. TTs. 6 days track. 3 days bmx and 2 days mountain bike. All in that order.

    The other thing I'd stress again is there are 24 feeds available on virgin/freesat/sky.

    If you want Andrew I may put up a freeview + freeview red button (yes, sadly their services are different) guide for olympics cycling. Sadly that list seems to be somewhat shorter.

    Yes please, for freeview coverage. I want to record it.

    Is the coverage available on internet after the event as well (iplayer?). As I don't have sky, virgin or freesat and the cycling is all I'm interested in!

    It will be or for a fair bit of stuff. The page I copied that off on the BBC has a key http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/olympics/2012/schedule-results. Unfortunately it doesn't yet list stuff for the key at the moment, I suspect it will do at some point.

    The BBC red button page is here http://news.bbc.co.uk/sport1/hi/tv_and_radio/5345480.stm. Unfortunately there are as ever with that service blanks still on there. Stuff doesn't always follow precisely what they say.

    Freeview coverage is something like (this is going on what it officially says)
    Saturday 28th
    Men's road race
    BBC3 10:00-11:00
    301 red button 10:45-13:15
    BBC 1 13:45-16:45

    Unfortunately it is not totally clear. For example BBC3 isn't very clear what'll be on before that olympic programme finishes at 2pm. I have a hunch that the later bits of that programme might well be a few flicks of coverage of the road race once gymnastics has finished (otherwise there is a gap) with other 'looking forward to' type stuff fillers and a bit of studio stuff. The red button page even hints at this. I could be wrong though.

    As of today it doesn't list anything for cycling on red button 301/302 on freeview.

    BBC1 now lists the Sunday on BBC1 at least as being

    Cycling track:
    16.00 Women's sprint 1/16 finals
    16.35 Men's sprint quarter-finals - race 1
    17.00 Men's omnium 15km scratch race
    17.20 Men's sprint quarter-finals - race 2
    Cycling track:
    18.10 Men's omnium 1km time trial

    BBC 3
    Cycling track:
    10.00 Men's omnium 4km individual pursuit
    11.00 Women's sprint qualifying

    Cycling track:
    16.00 Women's sprint 1/16 finals
    16.35 Men's sprint quarter-finals - race 1
    17.00 Men's omnium 15km Scratch Race
    17.20 Men's sprint quarter-finals - race 2

    hth. Subject to change and vagueness I'm afraid. That's what it's looking like now though.

    If they don't show the women's elimination race I will scream and stamp my foot!
    We have Freesat, but there's also a large public screen not that far from me that I'll have to investigate.
