340 participants took part in this year's Round the Borough Bike on Sunday 12 May, making it our best one ever! Thank you to everyone who played a part in making this event a huge success.
Now in its sixth year, the event attracts both beginners and keen cyclists and is perfect for all the family. The event follows an off-road well-marked and marshalled route of approximately 20 miles across some of Epsom and Ewell's scenic spaces and local nature reserves, including Epsom Downs, Epsom Common, Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill and Horton Country Park.
The youngest participant to complete the course was aged just six and the oldest participant to complete the route was aged 79. Well done to all our participants who took part and to those who completed the course.
34 volunteers gave up their time to help with the event. Their role is vital and their assistance was much appreciated by participants as they cycled the route.
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. Round the Borough Hike which will take place on Saturday 7 September follows exactly the same route.
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.
