CHILDREN IN NEED DAY 2012

Post by palkanetoijala31 » 25 Jul 2012, 12:42

Continuing on with my annual charity event last year we had High Barnet start Cockfosters Finish This year will also be a unique way to get around the network
is anyone interested in a slow pace route collecting for charity.

I if going alone of course will start at Woodford parking my car there starting the watch at Roding Valley and finishing at Epping going back to car at end of day!

Will look at routes and try and have our usual "race" around the network...

Perhaps you can pick me up on the way through :)

The main timetable change is normally December, so I don't expect anything major to change between now and November.

I think the Olympia shuttle is running all day that day - so in theory anything is possible!

Would an Epping Start be OK rather than Roding Valley :?:

I would like to start looking at routes for our traditional "team race" for CiN 8)
