Borough Insight

On yer bike!

This year’s Round the Borough Bike was the biggest ever, with 340 intrepid cyclists taking part in the 20 mile challenge through some of the most uplifting scenery in the borough.

Now in its sixth year the event attracts both beginners and keen cyclists. The youngest to complete the course on Sunday 12 May was just six years old and the oldest was aged 79.

Well done to everyone who took part and congratulations to all those who completed the course.

We would like to express our thanks to the 34 volunteers gave up their time to help with the event. Their role is vital and without their assistance we could not run the event.

Round the Borough Bike was also supported by various organisations - Rotary Club of Epsom; Surrey Police and Surrey Police Cadets for bike marking; Xways Cycles for free bike checks and mechanical assistance; South Coast Medics; Friends of Horton Country Park; BETTER - Rainbow Leisure Centre; Emma Byrne from Cancer Research UK; What's On In Epsom and The Royal Automobile Club.

This event forms part of the round the borough hike and bike challenge. The 20-mile route is permanently marked with discs and can be completed at any time of the year. Epsom & Ewell Borough Council launched the Round the Borough Hike and Bike challenge in 2014, to build on the legacy of the London Olympics and the borough hosting stage 7 of the 2013 Tour of Britain. 

Diary date! Round the Borough Hike which will take place on Saturday 7 September follows exactly the same route.
