Vuelta iCal

Wednesday, 13 August 2014


D-10 to the start of the Vuelta a España. Here’s the calendar of the Vuelta stages for your electronic diary. What started out as a useful tool proves to be a very popular download.


Each stage comes with asterisks to suggest the relative importance or TV spectacle. As ever there will be daily stage previews and more during the race.

iCal
An iCal is a calendar file that you can store on your phone or electronic diary like Outlook. There are several ways to get this on to your computer or phone.

Subscribe and get automatic updates: The recommended option is to subscribe by copying the iCal URL:

https://www.google.com/calendar/ical/qsdlvqn5tc3n6jdnvbc7ml0q6k%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

  • If you use MacOS/iOS copy the URL to the iCal file then Calendar.app hit cmd+alt+S (or File>New Calendar Subscription…) whilst in Calendar.app, paste in the link and it will update across all your devices and updates will be processed
  • iPhone/iPad users should hold their finger here and wait for the pop up message and select copy. Then go to settings > mail/contacts/calendars > then “add account” > “other” > “add subscribed calendar” > paste the copied URL into the server field and follow the instructions. Think about turning off the alarm so you don’t get midnight alerts
  • If you use Microsoft Outlook, copy the URL and then go to Tools > Account Settings > Internet Calendars and paste the URL to subscribe. In each case when the calendar is updated with a date change or an event is cancelled your software will upload the new data.

Direct download: You can download the iCal file for your organiser, phone, computer and other devices from here

google.com/calendar/ical/…/basic.ics

Right-click to save the ics / iCal / iCalendar file and you can import it into your electronic diary. If you have trouble with the subscription then this is an easier option but it means you might want to download a new version a few times a year to get the latest version.

Google Calendar: If you use Google Calendar then click on the icon on the bottom-right of the calendar up above. Note this method can work with Android phones when the iCal file might not although you might need the Google Sync calendar app.

Remember you can get the whole season of major men’s and women’s pro races at inrng.com/calendar.

Thanks, you need to check permissions before it will work, the calendar isn’t public at the moment.

Looks like the settings weren’t saved. Should be fixed now.

thanks for doing the calendar, I’m on the road for the next 2 1/2 weeks and this will help me manage my vulkano recording settings

Yes, the calendar is most helpful, thank you, but I’m pre-apologizing for my immediate thought about the image with the peloton and giant bull. Contador’s steak that ‘came from Spain.’ Sorry, just my first thought.

I truly hope the Vuelta is everything it potentially could be. That’s asking a lot this late in the season, but one never knows. This could be one for the history books!

That’s the Osborne bull, not the clenbuterol bull.
