    Saturday 28th July

    The Men's Road Race starts at 10:00 at The Mall in London. The route will take the riders through six London boroughs, four Royal Parks and the Surry countryside, looping Box Hill nine times! Around 120km of road is available to watch the riders pass for free, although some areas are ticketed.

    A detailed map of the route can be found on the London 2012 website for anyone who wants to go and find somewhere to watch!

    Hoping Britain's Mark Cavendish will be leading the way as the cyclists come back along The Mall at around 16:00

    My brother is going to see this tomorrow, with his wife and three sons. They're off to France for a holiday, but they've gone a day early so they can see the cycling. We have relatives in Guildford, so they're staying there tonight, then up at the crack of dawn tomorrow to line the roads somewhere in Surrey, in the hopes of catching a glimpse of Mark Cavendish - my nephews think he's fantastic

    Just hoping they get to see something, or my brother will have to face a very long drive with three disappointed little boys!

    Some of the VB girls are going to Box Hill tomorrow. Wondering whether to go too. Have checked the trains (there will be nowhere to park) but still not feeling to good with this cold.

    Have to say it's totally beyond me too but I'm sure Team GB must know what they're doing.

    Gutted for Cav.

    This is what he said after.

    "We rode the exact race we wanted to ride. We wanted to control it and we wanted the group at a minute. We expected teams to come and chase at the end with us. We controlled it with four guys for 250 km and we couldn't do more. We are human beings.
    "There was a group of 22 who got away and we couldn't pull them back. The four guys who ran all day couldn't do it. The Germans came a bit too late and the other teams seemed to be more content that they wouldn't win as long as we didn't win. That's kind of how it goes.
    "I can be proud of how the lads rode today. I'm proud of my country as there was incredible support. The guys are sat there, they are spent. They have got nothing left in the tank. It's incredible to see that. To see what they gave for the cause."
