Ronde van Overijssel (English: Tour of Overijssel) is an elite men's road bicycle racing event held annually in Overijssel, Netherlands and sanctioned by the Royal Dutch Cycling Union.

The event is UCI 1.2 rated,[1] and is part of the UCI Europe Tour. In 2012, the race was expanded to two days for its 60th anniversary,[2] but reverted to a single-day race in 2013. The race has been dominated by home riders; only 6 of the race's 65 editions have been won by non-Dutch riders: Tayeb Braikia in 1998, Brett Lancaster in 2002, Reinardt Janse van Rensburg in 2010, Dennis Coenen in 2014, Aidis Kruopis in 2016 and Nicolai Brøchner in 2017.
