Re: Couple visiting all British railway stations

I confess that it was seeing Geoff and Vicki visiting all the stations that made me think of dropping back into the forum here to see what's going on. I really like how they've turned what could be very geeky / inward looking into an open adventure with all the videos and interaction. Really well pl...

Re: How many ...?

I am new to all this but living in Derbyshire makes it awkward ... but not as awkward as a wife that thinks me doing this is (in her words) "Completely f**king stupid, pointless and you need to get a life". There is absolutely no way I could do more than I do now, no matter how much I'd like to. Th...

Re: Zone 1 day 2013- Friday 31st May 2013

I came along (after a month of nagging from tractakid) more to see friends than for the competition; it was a pleasure to catch up and meet some of the newer challengers, although a shame that the scale of the event is somewhat smaller than it was previously. As I've hardly been on the underground, ...

Re: Milton Keynes

If you wanted a Milton Keynes challenge, I'd suggest cycling round the whole massive redway network of cycle paths. Makes the tube map look simple.

Re: 150 Years of the Underground

Wikipedia and Google are saying today is the anniversary, so I couldn't resist dropping by to raise a glass to the underground and everyone whose vision made it happen and grow.

Happy new year everyone - hope all is well in tube-challenge land and that all your delays are minor.

Best,
Ric

Re: The Tube, Episode 4.

It's been a long time since I've been in these parts, but I was so excited tonight I couldn't help posting. There was I, watching TV in my ramshackle little bedsit, and all of a sudden I'm thinking "I know that guy!" None other than tangy gracing my front room. Does he do autographs? Is his fan club...

Re: Poll for what date to do Z1 2010 on ...

When we organised it, finding a child-friendly pub was the most important thing. We actually had one venue booked but then cancelled when we secured a better one.

Re: TUBE 24 3RD WORLD RECORD

Congratulations - superb time.

I ran Edgware to Canon's Park once, up the hill so ran out of gas towards the end, but I could see there was no train coming.

The first time I did it I got hopelessly lost and did a 30 min Edgware->jog->stop and look at map->Swear->hobble->Kingsbury connection :)
