Around 2,500 cyclists will follow the round the Island cycle route, which runs in a clockwise direction for 100km – or a shorter route of 50 km – calling at 5 registration stops on the way.
The event gets underway at 09:00 and will conclude by 18:00.
Organisers are asking motorists to be aware of the extra cyclists on the signed route throughout the day.
Councillor Phil Jordan, Cabinet member for transport and infrastructure, has also said:
“Our Island has rapidly become a mecca for cyclists.
“It has some fantastic, challenging and exciting cycling routes, which is partly why the Island will be hosting the final leg of the Tour of Britain cycle race in September. It is also why the Randonnée always attracts a huge number of enthusiasts.
“During the event, please make sure that if you encounter Randonnée participants around the Island that you do follow the revised Highway Code for the safety of everyone.
“Slow down, stop and wait for a safe gap in the flow of cyclists if necessary. This includes when cyclists are approaching, passing, or moving off from a junction, moving past or waiting alongside stationary or slow-moving traffic, or travelling around a roundabout”.
The annual cycling extravaganza is said to bring positive financial benefits to the Isle of Wight with any surplus funds raised going to the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Air Ambulance and other Island-based charities.
The IoW Randonnee was established by the Wayfarers in 1985 and enables riders to see and enjoy the best of the Island’s scenery.
