The Mountain Bike events will run over two days from August 11th to 12th at Hadleigh Farm in Essex, while the Road events will run from July 28th to August 1st.

"Publishing the Olympic sports competition schedule means that everyone – athletes, coaches, spectators, broadcasters and everybody who wants to be part of London 2012 can now start planning their Games," said LOCOG chair Sebastian Coe.

"The Olympic Games is the greatest show on earth, and the schedule shows the vast choice of sporting events on offer for the public to go and see. The world’s greatest athletes in every one of the 26 Olympic sports are now honing their preparation to a specific point of time on a specific date in July and August 2012.

"Families up and down the country can now plan their summer of 2012. The schedule showcases brilliant and exciting sport every single day, over 19 days, with 302 medals on offer. Our message to the public is clear – the superstars of twenty six world sports are coming to the UK and you have the chance to say 'I was there'."
