The Inner Ring will be looking to the five rings of the Olympics shortly and to start, you can now download a calendar of events for your electronic diary on a phone or computer.
inrng2012OlympicCycling.ics [right-click to save, see below for more tech support].
The Tour de France ical was surprisingly popular so I’ve put together a similar version for the Olympic games… but only the cycling of course.
Each event appears with the timing during the day, for example the men’s road race is on Saturday from 10.00am to 4.30pm London time (GMT+1). I’ve chose the local time and hopefully your calendar will adjust them to your local time.
All events are listed from the road to the track, BMX and MTB. Note if there’s a program of events on the velodrome the timings can change if events overrun, for example if there’s a crash and the track needs some repairs.
Over to you to incorporate it with whatever software you might use. Normally On a desktop or laptop computer the best way is to right-click on the file link above and save the .ics file. Then import the file to your electronic diary. With an iPhone just click on the link and select “Open in Calendar” when prompted and should get incorporated into your diary. One or two clicks and it’s on your phone / Outlook etc calendar.
