Olympic cycling online

My blogging buddies on the West Coast, Cyclelicious and BikingBis, already have posted times to watch Olympic cycling online at NBCOlympics.com in the Pacific Time Zone. I'm doing the same for those of us who live in the Central Time Zone:
  • Friday, Aug. 8: Men's Road Race, 10 p.m.-4:30 a.m. Saturday (UPDATED AUG. 8)
  • Sunday, Aug. 10: Women's Road Race, 1:30-4 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Aug. 12: Women's Time Trial, 10:30 p.m.-12:05 a.m.
  • Wednesday, Aug. 13: Men's Time Trial, 12:30-4:10 a.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 15: Men's and women's track individual pursuit; men's team sprint, 3:30-6 a.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 16: Women's individual pursuit first round; men's kerin, points race, and 4000m individual pursuit finals, 3:30-6:45 a.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 16: Men's team pursuit; men's and women's sprint qualifying rounds, 9-10:45 p.m.
  • Sunday, Aug. 17: Women's 3000m individual pursuit final; men's & women's sprint round of 16 and round of 8, 3:30-5:45 a.m.
  • Monday, Aug. 18: Women's points race; men's and women's sprint quarterfinals, 3:30-6 a.m.
  • Tuesday, Aug. 19: Men's madison; men's and women's sprint classifications, semifinals and finals, 3:30-6:50 a.m.
  • Friday, Aug. 22: Women's Mountain Bike Race, 2-4:15 a.m.
  • Saturday, Aug. 23: Men's Mountain Bike Race: 2-4:45 a.m.
Even someone with weird work hours like me is going to be hard-pressed to stay up for the online coverage, so I will post those in the next day or two. Meanwhile, you can find listings at NBCOlympics.com.

I think Biking Bis mentioned this, I don't recall, but for TV coverage go here:


Enter your zip code and choose your televison provider. Then, in the drop down menu by "By Sport" choose cycling. It will then block out the days no cyling coverage is provided, click on the active dates and you will get a list of coverage, with descriptions and channels (including channel number for your service). Online coverage is first. They go into enough detail that it lets you know what is included in summary shows and multi-sport shows as well as medal coverage.
