The Urban Cycling Road Course (simplified Chinese: 公路自行车赛场; traditional Chinese: 公路自行車賽場; pinyin: Gōnglù Zìxíngchē Sàichǎng) was one of nine temporary venues used during the 2008 Summer Olympics in Beijing, People's Republic of China. The road cycling race started at the North Square of Yongdingmen in Beijing's Chongwen District and finished at Juyong Pass in Changping District. The route also passed through Xuanwu, Dongcheng, Xicheng, Chaoyang and Haidian districts.
