It's very risky BUT team Kev has a back up plan that still just about gets on that all important Chiltern if we miss the planned Richmond... This is going to be exciting methinks :P

The Challenge is today so won't be on the programme (in some ways perhaps it would have been nice for the BBC to have covered the finish, but then it would have spoilt the film...).
Currently 4th place in the Bottle Challenge league table
Currently 3rd place Zone1/Zone 2 Challenge

ok Mr tube geek the point of a film crew is to make a documentary they have to edit all the film done cut out swearing in my case etc. it will be shown in various film festivals around Britain poßibly Cannes if get catergory right which I'm not sure me and das get copies of film. YouTube unlikely as the download would be too much? but when time comes I'm sure i get copy disc to you

If they cut out all your swearing, they'll struggle to make 90 minutes!

It's very risky BUT team Kev has a back up plan that still just about gets on that all important Chiltern if we miss the planned Richmond... This is going to be exciting methinks :P

LOL not really there is still plenty of time to go back to South Ealing and complete the start of the route and make the all important Chiltern from Marylebone... Then just finish at Richmond... Anyway Kev and Glen completed in 18 09 32... Why on earth did you re-route at North Harrow when you were dead on schedule? We made the MHE and Woodford as planned and even got 17 mins up leaving Uxbridge... (all that time was lost due signal issues at Acton Town)

Yes - why did that happen?

For one thing, it made you all impossible to find - how are we supporters supposed to track you down when you go randomly running off?
