Networks and Maps

Epsom & Ewell Cycle Network

The borough has an extensive network of safe and attractive cycle routes.  These enable you to avoid busy main roads.  They are particularly good for exploring open spaces such as:

  • Epsom Common
  • Epsom Downs
  • Nonsuch Park
  • Horton Country Park
  • The Hogsmill

Epsom & Ewell Borough Council publishes a Family Cycle Map showing cycle route in these open spaces, as well as other routes in the borough.

There are also utility routes connecting Epsom with Stoneleigh, Ewell, NESCOT etc.

National Cycle Network

sustransThe National Cycle Network offers over 8,000 miles of signed, safe and attractive cycle routes in the UK. By 2005, 10,000 miles had put over half of the UK population within two miles of the Network.

One third of the Network is on traffic-free paths, with the rest on quiet minor roads and traffic-calmed streets. These well-marked routes provide fantastic leisure opportunities, as well as links into towns for schools, work and stations.

Disused railway lines, canal towpaths, riversides and parks, bringing the countryside right into town and city centres. For walkers and cyclists, young and old, those with prams and wheelchairs.
