Register today! Round the Borough Bike 2019 

For a chance to view the beautiful open spaces of Epsom and Ewell by bike, sign up today for this year's Round the Borough Bike, Sunday 12 May at www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk/rbhb 

Now in its sixth year, this free event attracts both beginners and keen cyclists and is perfect for all the family! Last year 199 individuals took part, with the youngest participant aged just 6 and the oldest 82! 

The event follows an off-road well-marked and marshalled route of approximately 20 miles across some of the borough's scenic spaces and local nature reserves, including Epsom Downs, Epsom Common, Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill and Horton Country Park. 

Round the Borough Bike starts and finishes at Horton Country Park with a staggered start from around 9.15am for keen cyclists and at 9.30am for those wanting a more leisurely experience. Off-road cycles are recommended. Participants who complete the route will receive a certificate in recognition of their achievement and participants under 16 years will receive a small medal. 

Online registrations close on Thursday 9 May at 4pm but those wishing to register on the day can do so up until 9am at Horton Country Park. All pre-registered participants must also sign in by 9am. 

We are looking for volunteer course marshals at key locations along the route. If you can spare 2-3 hours between 8am-5pm to help us with this popular event, we would be very grateful! Full briefing and equipment will be provided. Your role is vital and much appreciated by the participants as they cycle the route. Please visit www.epsom-ewell.gov.uk/rbhb to register your interest. 

Surrey Police are looking to offer a bike marking service for those participating and to members of the public who attend with their bikes. 

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.
