Bike Ride Success for Elliot Payne

Round the Borough Bike Ride Success for Elliot Payne

We were delighted to hear that Elliot Payne 8O completed the Round the Borough Bike Ride 2017 last Sunday, 14 May, and was the first U16 to complete the ride, earning himself a photo with The Mayor of Epsom and Ewell!

The Round the Borough Hike and Bike (RBHB) route aims to build on the London 2012 Olympic legacy and the success of hosting Stage 7 of the Tour of Britain in 2013. The RBHB is an off-road route, approximately 20 miles long, that joins up the beautiful spaces in Epsom and Ewell. This includes Epsom Downs, Epsom Common Local Nature Reserve (LNR), Nonsuch Park, the Hogsmill LNR and Horton Country Park LNR.

The route can also be walked (hiked), instead of cycling. The Round the Borough Hike event will take place on Saturday 2 September. The event starts and finishes in Horton Country Park LNR. The event is free to enter and open to all ages and abilities.

If you wish to complete the RBHB route on a different day to the organised events, the route is well marked and a map is available from the link above.

Congratulations to Elliot on his impressive completion of this challenge.
