More than 125 participants took part in Round the Borough Bike on Sunday 17 May at Horton Country Park. A free event for the whole family saw cyclists of all ages and abilities take on the 20 mile challenge to explore and discover Epsom & Ewell off the beaten track by bike.
From the youngest aged six to the oldest 78, various participants rode the long distance route across some the Borough's beautiful open spaces including Epsom Downs, Epsom Common Local Nature Reserve, Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill and Horton Country Park Local Nature Reserve.
Councillor Jan Mason, Chairman of the Leisure Committee said, “We have once again had a tremendous response to this year's event. It was a wonderful day for cycling and it was great to see cyclists of all ages - families, groups of young people, ladies, men and solo riders. Well done to everyone who took part and made Round the Borough Bike a memorable event.
“The route follows some of the Borough’s stunning locations and is a fantastic opportunity to discover Epsom & Ewell’s hidden gems.”
The next event, Round the Borough Hike which takes places on Saturday 5 September follows the same route. Registration for this free event is already open, for more information and to register visit www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk/roundtheboroughhikeandbike
