The Isle of Wight Randonnee is not a sportive, but a relaxed, family-friendly and increasingly popular bike ride taking in stunning coastal scenery on the Isle of Wight.

The course follows the permanently sign-posted Round The Island (RTI) cycle routes in a clockwise direction with a choice of 100km and 55km rides. The event starts at 9am and finishes at 6pm.

Registration for the 2022 Randonnee is now open. There is no entry fee.

The IoW Randonnee was established by the Wayfarers in 1985 and uniquely follows a route around the whole of the Isle of Wight taking minor roads and lanes where possible enabling the rider to see and enjoy the best of the Island's scenery. The event attracts around 3000 participants each year.

For 2022 the organisers have introduced a few changes to reduce contact on the event. Unlike in previous years, advance registration is required; entrants will receive an e-ticket which must be presented at the first checkpoint and there will be no entries on the day.

The traditional brevet card is to be replaced with a digital brevet card using the event's mobile app, the checkpoint at Alverstone has been removed and a one-way system will be in operation at the remaining checkpoints.

The event remains free to enter with 2500 places available for 2022.
