The Isle of Wight International Scooter Rally is back for the bank holiday weekend.

The huge annual gathering draws scooter fans from across the country.

Most will camp at Sandown airport, from August 26 to 30.

As well as bars, food and camping, live entertainment is planned.

Acts including The Team, Tasteless and King Salami and the Cumberland 3.

The popular rideout will set off from Ryde seafront at 1pm on Sunday and will head for the airport, near Lake.

The event draws big crowds because of the spectacle of the scooters parked up in Ryde.

Scooterists have been arriving on the Isle of Wight by ferry (seen here in East Cowes on Thursday night), to join the Isle of Wight's own enthusiasts.

Mod-style entertainment will also be on hand at Ryde's Eastern Gardens across the weekend, courtesy of the Ticket to Ryde event, organised by the Jack Up The Summer team.

Earlier this year, the popular event inspired a follow-up to the cult movie Quadrophenia.
