Re: Post-Lockdown FNC

I think for 2020, just forget it. Still hoping for a second attempt, maybe in 2021..... I did Ken O early on just to get it out of the way. It is annoying how the whole challenge needs to be planned with just 1 station in mind. Agreed that a late Amersham/Chesham finish isn't fun. Feels a little lon...

Re: Attempt No.1 - 05/09/19

Well done both of you. Always nice to read someone's account of their attempt. Has been a long time since the last one.

Re: Recce runs

I'm still very much hoping to do it again. Family life seriously limits my free time though. Maybe late June 2020. Prefer to do it during the light mornings/evenings.

Re: forum members on tv

Was watching The Chase on Challenge Channel about 4 days ago. There was a chap from Worthing who says he held the tube record. Dunno if he's on here.

Re: How many ...?

Going back to the first post, it is almost dead on here now.

How does one revive it?

How do we get those old forum members interested again?

How do we get plenty of new blood on here?

Re: How many ...?

If you can run a 3:30 marathon, then you're fit! I can remember being of that standard once, not that I ever did a full marathon. When you've become a 17-stone fatty the wrong side of 40, then things are a little trickier! Do you need to worry about witnesses? Unless you're confident of challenging ...

Planning next attempt for Friday 29 June 2018

Ok, 1 year to go as of yesterday. Last Friday of June.
Planning/announcing well in advance to see if anyone else is willing to do the challenge on the same day.
I'll be starting at Upminster again on the first train of the day.

Re: How many ...?

It's very much up to each man to work out his own route. Then make a few trips to London to test your interchanges, etc. That's what makes it fun. I doubt the current record time will ever be broken, due to hardly anyone taking part these days, plus it would be a full-time job working out a record r...

Peter, I tried sending you a PM, but looks like it is still in the Outbox. Let me know if you get it.

Re: Third attempt - Friday 30th June

So much of your post sounds so familiar to me :-) (except the finish point).
Good luck, look forward to reading the write up.

Re: How many ...?

I only look at this forum once every few weeks now as there doesn't seem to be much happening. I still very much want to give my 2014 route another crack, with much better planning. But like many other people, when you have work and family commitments, it's difficult to get up to London to work on t...

Re: TUBE 55 WORLD RECORD NO 6 NOT ACCORDING TO GUINNESS

Maybe you'll have to have a GoPro cam attached to yourself and film the whole thing! Just point it upwards when relieving yourself :lol:
