Moscow Anyone?

Post by CamdenTown » 09 Oct 2012, 13:19

This is a shot in the dark, but is there anyone living in or planning to visit Moscow who would be interested in attempting an all stations challenge on the Metro? I suppose it's not much of a challenge if no one has ever attempted it before, but hey, riding the Metro would be a great way to beat the cold for a day! If I'm truly the only Tube Challenger living in the Motherland, I may give it a go on my own anyway, but I'd rather have company.

I can hear the deafening silence already...

Wasn't there an attempt made in the early 1990's that appeared in the GWR book?

Mind you, if any new stations have been opened since then, that would be a mute point.

I'm sure Adham Fisher is planning an attempt. He's got every other non-LU record, it seems!

Just remember in Russia metro ride you!

The Moscow Metro authorities open new stations yearly, and there are dozens more slated for construction over the next several years. A record time on the system would only be a whimsical pursuit, of course! But it is one of the world's more incredible systems and certainly worth adding to any veterans' challenge resume, so Mr. Fisher should strongly consider.

Also if I a mass event were to take place about the challange maybe it could be a large group thing.

I presume if you organised it for a suitable date throw in some options for flights and accommodation options around Moscow you might get some takers plus perhaps put a network map on here to see how easy or hard it is?

It might be an idea if anyone agrees to do the challenge with you that you meet in a public place so you can gage each other before you spend hours with each other on a tube train in Russia.
