Christian Wolmar's time has been removed from the list, as I have now learned that it separately failed to meet two of criteria normally considered necessary to be considered a valid completion.

Re: Top times: Full Network Challenge

With apologies for the delay, due to me not being near a computer when on holiday, the top times list on the first page is now updated with the new record (which has not yet been ratified by Guinness).

Re: TUBE 55 WORLD RECORD NO 6 NOT ACCORDING TO GUINNESS

Apologies for not commenting on this earlier, but I've been away in Germany for the past couple of weeks with only very limited Internet access. As others have already said the Guinness stance seems utterly ridiculous. I already had a fairly low opinion of Guinness, but it has sunk even further. If ...

Re: Croxley go-ahead

Don't hold your breath, but according to the post on Diamond Geezer's blog today, the Croxley link won't be opening until December 2019 at the earliest. At this rate, the Battersea extension may be first. As I had planned to make a FNC with the new Met line my swansong for tube challenging, the good...

Re: 2015 Zone 1 Challenge- 29th May 2015

Unfortunately, I wont be attending on Friday. Having virtually retired from challenging, I had hoped to at least come along to see how you got on, but now that won't be possible either. Good luck to you all!

Belated congratulations! I'm glad that you managed to get your stopwatch to work this time and record a definitive time. If you would like me to add your accomplishment to the top times list, perhaps you could PM me with your and Rob's full name?

Re: GWR Site is reporting a new World Record time ...

I was surprised when it turned out to be an old geezer :lol: I thought you needed to be under 35 and super fit to belt it down the hill from West Ruislip to Ickenham in about 3 minutes. And up god knows how many staircases. I'm older than this "old gezeer" and as I discovered at the last Zone 1 I c...
