WET weather did not put the skids on this year's Randonnee, which attracted more than 1,600 riders.
Although numbers were down on previous years — in 2011 about 2,100 riders took part — the Randonnee, run by the Wayfarer Cycletouring Club, was hailed a success.
Andy Newman, chairman of the Randonnee organising committee, said: "We had about what we expected, considering the weather.
"There was still a brilliant atmosphere on the day and everyone was in high spirits, so we were really pleased."
Riders from the Island were joined by many who travelled from the mainland to take part.
