Re: Third attempt - Friday 30th June

Time to send out a search party? Hi Andy, Thanks for your private message last week and the good luck wishes. They were much appreciated. My challenge last Friday went well, completing with an improved time despite several chunky delays and hold-ups throughout the day. I also managed to keep to my ...

Re: Third attempt - Friday 30th June

You could always do it as a sponsored event to raise money for the Grenfell relief effort. You must have read my mind, because I have already been asking a few people if they would like to sponsor me. I thought any money raised could go to either a Grenfell charity or a fire brigade benelovent char...

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. Thanks for the good luck wishes, Andy. What with some of the things that have happened in London over the past few weeks, not least the terribly sad tragedy at Grenfell Towe...

Third attempt - Friday 30th June

Dear all, Just to inform you, following on from last October's successful (if painfully slow) attempt, I am planning my third Tube Challenge attempt on Friday 30th June. I've booked into a hotel in Romford for the Thursday night, and plan to start on the 04:53 District Line service out of Upminster....

Very well done.

And good luck with your next attempt when I'm sure you'll get a full 270.

Re: First Ever Attempt - EASTER HOLIDAYS (Hopefully!)

If you are going between Kenton and Northwick Park on foot, there is a small tuck shop-type stall on the northside doorway at Northwick Park that is conveniently sited for quick use and the right direction to/from Kenton. There are toilets on the platform at Preston Road , which (if your route is pl...

I'm pleased to announce that, at the second attempt, I have managed to complete the Tube Challenge last week on Friday 14th October, starting at Heathrow Terminal 4 at 05:02 and finishing at Brixton, as well as managing to get Kensington Olympia ticked as early as 06:15. Not quite such impressive ne...

Re: Second Attempt - Friday 14th October 2016

Thanks for the good luck wishes, Quisquidilius. I have put together what I think is a pretty good route, starting at Heathrow T4 and then taking in both Olympia and Mill Hill East fairly early in the day. However, as with my attempt back in June, I am not intending on doing too much running but will...

Second Attempt - Friday 14th October 2016

Following my 236-out-of-270 attempt back in June, I've decided to have another stab at completing The Tube Challenge, this time with a little help with some late-running night services. The attempt is planned for Friday 14th October, hopefully with a 05:02 start from Heathrow T4 and the early stab a...
