The Olympic Cycling Road Race will be taking place this weekend, 28th and 29th July, in the Guildford area!
While spectators will need tickets to watch in the Mall in London and on some stretches of the Box Hill circuit, cycling and Olympic enthusiasts can watch for free anywhere else on the route. Click here for a map of the route.
Grab your camera, don your hat, fill up a water bottle (and don't forget your common sense!) - this is going to be a very exciting weekend!
