Hundreds of cyclists took part in a record year for Epsom and Ewell's Round the Borough Bike 2019 on Sunday.

Epsom and Ewell Borough Council (EEBC) praised the sixth-edition of the area's popular biking event as a huge successful after revealing that 340 participants took part.

"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," a spokesperson for EEBC said.

Offering further details of the event, EEBC highlighted the great diversity of everyone who took part and offered congratulations to them and the dozens of volunteers who helped put on the event.

EEBC said: "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."

The event forms one half of the round the borough hike and bike challenge designed by EEBC.

The council launched the challenges in 2014, to build on the legacy of the London Olympics and the borough hosting stage 7 of the 2013 Tour of Britain.

The 20-mile route is permanently marked with discs and can be completed at any time of the year.

Round the Borough Hike 2019 is taking place on Saturday, September 7 and will follow exactly the same route as the Bike challenge.
