Re: All Tube Challenge - The return of a mad idea

Based on what the participants of last year's effort looked like the following day a few suggestions... - Do not do a parkrun the following morning. - Do not follow up the challenge (especially if doing a parkrun already) with a R15. - If you absolutely must do a R15 following this challenge and a p...

Re: Zone 1 Challenge Cup 2020

I think that it is fairly clear that this year's event should be cancelled. Although the rules for lockdown have recently had a tiny level of relaxation they in no way support a group of people meeting up, let alone that gathering meaning rushing around on public transport. There would also be no wa...

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 4

Unfortunate that it has come to this, however I fully agree that cancellation is the best option. Who knows what lies ahead for the world over the next few weeks and months but I have no doubt that we will all see each other soon.

Good luck. Travel safe!

Spoons is normally starting somewhere between 10:00 and 10:30 depending on Parkrun participants and distance to travel from finish.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2019/20: Round 4

I'll turn up for the R15. Solo this time I think though!
Parkrun... Yes, but will choose a location based on where others are going.
Spoons... A necessity after Parkrun, but location dependent.

I am up for another trip to Birmingham, the greatest city in the Midlands next year for another go :)

I’m here at Birmingham New Street until 19:45. Curry is at Manzil’s at 20:00.
This was just a convoluted excuse to go for a curry. Tasty curry!

Sounds like a reasonable option. Heading back towards the city now.

I think I may have broken one record today - 2h22 from start station to second station in a R15!
Saw you at Leamington Spa. I did shout but you didn't hear me.

Re: Birmingham R15

Route v1 planned. Predicted finish time classified for now.

(although subsequently revised due to accidentally going back in time by an hour at one point...)

Re: Birmingham R15

Peaky Blinders Top Tip: Most lines in Birmingham have 15-30 min frequency. But Stratford-on-Avon stoppers and Coventry-Leamington Spa via Kenilworth are only hourly. Even worse are Chiltern’s Stratford-On-Avon-Leamington Spa trains, which are every two hours, so you will need to plan the south-east...

For reference if anyone finds themselves stuck there... the pub The Warwickshire Lad next to Wood Green station is also very nice :)
I think you mean Wood End. If you end up at Wood Green on the Piccadilly line, your route planning has gone seriously wrong. 😊
Oops, yes. Wood End.

Re: Birmingham R15

I have now put an final version of the pack up - https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MsevzPy1Z6oNx2KhQYRHr6VRXSAhaunt . I will also print off some hard copies for people on the day. See you all on Saturday. Are there no services that run International to Walsall on a Saturday? It would also be really...
