The Men's Individual Road Race at the 1948 Summer Olympics was held on an 11.45 km course. The course was circled seventeen times, so the total length of the competition was 194.6 km. There were 141 entries from 31 nations and 101 participants from 29 nations. Of the 101 starters 28 rode the distance to the end.[1][2]

A team classification was made, based on the rankings of the three best cyclists per nation, and this was used to determine the results of the team road race.
