Tokyo 2020 Cycling iCal

No time for post-Tour blues, the Olympics are coming. Need to know what day and what time all the cycling events in the Olympics are on? Want to have this on your phone or diary? You’ve come to the right place…

As you can see there’s cycling every day, from road races to BMX freestyle and track racing. You can use the calendar above for reference or if you want it free for your phone, diary, organiser, read on:

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

Here is the iCal URL:

https://calendar.google.com/calendar/ical/rgspoil89qb824f7cvaoa6lffo%40group.calendar.google.com/public/basic.ics

  • If you use MacOS copy the URL… and open the Calendar app. Then got to File > New Calendar Subscription…) and paste in the link and you’re done
  • iPhone/iPad users should push and hold down a finger here , wait for the pop up message and select “Copy”. Then on your device go to settings > Accounts and Passwords > Add account > Other > Add Subscribed Calendar and paste in the URL
  • If you use Microsoft Office or Outlook copy the URL and then go to File > Info Account Settings > Internet Calendars > New and paste the URL to subscribe
  • If you use Microsoft Outlook on the web copy the URL and then go to Calendar/Calendar icon > Open Calendar > From Internet > and paste the URL to subscribe > OK > Yes
  • Google Calendar: If you use Google Calendar then click on the icon on the bottom-right of the calendar up at the top of the page. Note this method can work with Android phones when the iCal file might not although you might need the Google Sync calendar app.

The subscription methods above are the best because any additions, deletion and amendments will automatically be pushed to your diary or device… although the Tokyo Olympic schedule’s unlikely to change.

It’s the same as this website’s annual pro cycling calendar where you see all the races and can download them for your phone or diary too via inrng.com/calendar. There’s one difference, the pro races are listed as events for each day because it’s too hard to list all the timings with different time zones and start/finish times. But, the Tokyo events are for specific time slots so you can know what time of day they are, the calendar will tell you in your local time. The organisers have been very specific with the timings, sometimes they seem to precise with barely time to clear the track between each round and a crash could make all the timings but at least you can see what the running order is.

If you want the calendar in plain format, here’s the schedule with all times in local JST (put it in your diary and times will get converted to your time).

    Perfect, thanks

    The mens mtb is the race i am looking forward to. It will be interesting watching the cross versus mtb specialists.
    On average you would expect the specialists to have better skills if its a hard coarse but the cross guys having a full road season behind them must have superb condition i expect them to be best at the end of the race.

    • The Inner Ring Sunday, 18 July 2021, 5:40 pm

      It’ll be interesting to see the course and what it is like. Feel for the MTB guys, they have their calendar and then some road riders breeze in and put their medals at risk, but that’s sport and the Rio race felt all the more fun for Sagan in it, plus plenty of MTB riders enjoy a career on the road too.

      • AK Sunday, 18 July 2021, 11:24 pm

        To me it felt more like MvdP was a dirt (cross and MTB) rider that breezed onto the road scene and swept up some of their major prizes. Same could be said for Sagan, he started with MTB as well though he never rode at the WC level. But it’s cool to see some excel in multiple disciplines. I find it a shame Downhill MTB is not olympic. It’s spectacular, well suited for TV and a very different discipline than XC.

        • Wipperman_15 Monday, 19 July 2021, 11:19 am

          Agree, I don’t class them as ‘roadies’ – they’re multi discipline riders, and both started off road.
          Pidcock even stated he was ‘born to mountain bike’ – and his skill set is best suited to it, more than CX. The longer climbs of MTB is right up his street, and technically, he’s more than good enough – you don’t win at Nove Mesto if you’re technically deficient.

          Tokyo is quite technical with short punchy climbs, that brings others into the mix, rather than the pure climbers. If on form, MvdP is capable of winning with one blistering attack; however, Flueckinger has been the best rider this season, and is the worthy favourite.
          Can you write Nino off? Time seems to have caught up with him, but you never know.

          As for the women’s race, well, it’s a ‘one horse race’; Lecomte just looks in a different league, winning races by more than a minute. it would be a huge surprise if she didn’t win – but a ‘one off’ race can produce shocks. PF-P hasn’t won all those championships for no reason – she knows when to peak. And defending champion Jenny Risveds, and Evie Richards are in form, and should be suited to this track.

        “Feel for the MTB guys, they have their calendar and then some road riders breeze in and put their medals at risk,” reminded me of the early days of MTB when Americans dominated. They were MOUNTAIN bike racers who won everything until the European Mountain BIKE racers showed up and killed ’em. I don’t pay much attention to it since the daze of Overend and Tomac but I assume it’s pretty much the same now? I’ll tune this in just ‘cuz it’s the Olympic Games cycling more than anything else….I find MTB racing to be dull, dull, dull. While I KNOW how hard it is having done it a time or two (including accidently getting entered into the French National Championship race back-in-the-day!) on TV it’s dull, dull, dull most of the time.

        • AK Wednesday, 21 July 2021, 12:30 am

          I agree, Larry. Mountain bike is dull to watch. There’s hardly any aerodynamic advantage, hence none of the advanced game theory tactics you have in road cycling. The strongest contestant wins, it’s as simple as that. It’s much more fun to do though. I prefer to ride mountain bikes and watch road bike racing. Just the thought of being in a peleton going fast shoulder to shoulder with 100+ others makes me shiver. While clearing a tricky uphill switchback or charging down a rock garden is delightful. I like recreational road riding alone or in small groups, but if I have the choice I always take the full suss and hit the dirt.

          • Wipperman_15 Wednesday, 21 July 2021, 6:06 pm

            Neither of you must watch much MTB if you think it’s boring. Who needs ‘advanced tactics’ when you’re watching racers close to the redline for 90 mins, having to negotiate technical courses, and not crash on the descents because they’re at their limit.

      • Tovarishch Tuesday, 20 July 2021, 7:11 am

        Looks like it was built for Pidcock. In many places it more like a downhill course, very steep, narrow and rocky plus some really tough uphill sections. Not many places to overtake.

  • Andrew Sweetman Sunday, 18 July 2021, 9:50 am

    The Womens Team Pursuit Final (Gold) is missing – Tues 3rd at 10:26, I suppose.

  • Alb Wednesday, 21 July 2021, 10:08 am

    Thanks for the effort!
