Re: Where am I? (on the move) #8

Would you believe it, I left the information about where I am and where I've been on a computer that I no longer have access to... shall we start a new game?

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

It depends on the definition of the challenge. If it's all modes on the Tube Map, then the cable car must be included as it is a mode on the tube map, fruitless gimmick or not. For the record, when the eastern end of the Jubilee Line is out of action for whatever reason, it's actually extremely help...

I also agree that its not important if these challenges are done or not. I just hope they brighten someones day during Covid19!
This being said, I'm very happy to take some of these ideas and run with them... though likely with a twist

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

I know the probability of all the weird routes coming out would be small, but if you got that rural route out of Orpington, coupled with something in the other three corners it would be a fair trek! (Enjoyable, but potentially very long!) I've run a number of Random 10 bus route simulations... it'd...

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

I was also wondering what the limitations of the challenge were. Is it just bus routes that serve central London? Do you have to do the whole route or just one stop? Are you allowed to use other public transport? Etc Sent from my SM-A530F using Tapatalk I think it has to be a small part of the rout...

Random 10 bus does sound good. Shame the number 10 bus itself doesn't run anymore!

I mean, there's always a bus routes Random 15 (or probably a Random 10 given we'd want to complete within a day)...

Re: The Raven Alternative Challenge ideas

I'd just like to make it clear that I am absolutely down for bus challenges... in fact, I have a few ideas of my own

Something Different

I'm not sure whether this should even go in Alternative Challenges - please move it if you consider it should be moved! Saturday 1st February will see a challenge different from any that have gone before it... welcome to the London IKEA Challenge. The aim? Using scheduled public transport, visit all...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 2

Well, I made two pretty big errors which pretty much ruined my hopes of coming in first... Started at Oval along with everyone else, and opened the envelope on the escalator down to the platforms. Saw Brixton on there and heard a train pulling in, so put on a burst of speed in case it was a southbou...

A coda to this event - Omari made a video of his and Tom's run around the route, which you can see here from 12 noon tomorrow:
