It can't have escaped your attention that after the sell-out Olympics, we're heading for a Paralympics with more tickets sold than at any other Games at previous Olympiads.
For the first time, Brands Hatch in north west Kent is being used as a venue.
There will be 32 road cycling events at Brands with more than 200 athletes from across the globe taking part.
Events consist of mass start road races and individual and team time trials. Sarah Saunders has been taking a look at what we can expect to see.
Sarah Saunders spoke to Gareth Sheppard the Paralympic Performance Manager for British Cycling, Anthony Kappes Paralympic cyclist and Mike Bishop Kent Disability Sports Manager.
