The cycling competition at the 1928 Summer Olympics in Amsterdam consisted of two road cycling events and four track cycling events, all for men only.[1] The individual event in road cycling was a road race over a distance of 168 km, having been a road race in the previous Games; the time trial team competition was decided by aggregating the times of the three fastest riders from each nation. The 50 km track event held in 1920 and 1924 was replaced by a 1 km time trial.
