Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

Woke up rather early after having not had much sleep at all that night of the night before to get an early train to Waterloo to make my way up to the pub for a quick cup of tea before having to leave rather early due to needing to be at Edgeware Road for the start of my Bottle. Got the circle line t...

Re: Top Times - DLR Challenge

did everybody wimp out of kgv to gallions reach? Nope, only difference in my case was that I was going from Gallions Reach to KGV. It was also how I was able to make up the time I lost on the bottle earlier in the day as well. 2:04.00 is a new PB for me as it was my first attempt at it! impressive ...

Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

Looking forward to todays challenge now that I am back in the UK. I also have a route sorted and it is the slower of the 2 routes on paper but should still come in at under 7 hours. A lot of printing off may be needed to say the least as I may get lost at some point!

Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

Cheers for the information on the tickets. I'm not entirely sure what kind of fitness level I am at although I might map out a route when I get back to find out. I might also be tweeting when I can on my account @roblo97 although this may depend on signal, battery and whether or not I have a run of ...

Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

Not really looking forward to the 5am BST start tomorrow to get to London but should at least be a bit cooler than here in Malta temperature wise. Got a couple of routes planned and they both come in under 7 hours, albeit with some fairly conservative estimates for interchanges. One of them does req...

Re: Triple Crown Day - 12th August

Was the Pre challenge Spoons going to be a bit earlier than it is for the R15? I was just wondering as wanted to work out what time I'll have to try and get to the station for. It's about 10 minute walk from the parkrun (unless any buses run from Leytonstone High Road towards the pub?) I would gues...

Re: "A planned event"

I subscribe to @TflTravelAlerts on Twitter and at 7pm yesterday (Monday 10th) they tweeted... On Wednesday, a planned event means central London will be busier than usual. Then, mysteriously, they couldn't say what the event was. There was speculation that it was connected to the state visit of the...

Re: Triple Crown Day - 8th July or 12th August

Got the flights to London via Frankfurt booked up. Just need to plan out my route for the day now and I won't have to make an early exit from the pub this time as well as I'm the only one going!

Re: Triple Crown Day

I am still hoping to get flights booked so I can take part, this being down to not living in the UK at the moment.

Re: Triple Crown Day

Already got a route planned out using 24 trains and a few runs, only one of which I have done. Whether or not I can make it will depend on which country I am living in at the time and also how cheap the flights are if I'm not based in the UK at the time.

Re: Random 15 Championship 2016/17: Round 6

Time for my write up. Managed to persuade my parents to let me go up there that morning. Started off at Olympia with everyone else and for the first part at least, there was a large number of us also changing at Earls Court for the District Line service to Fulham Broadway before doubling back to cat...
