Milton Keynes

How about a Milton Keynes roundabout bus challenge... visit all the roundabouts by bus. There are a couple that buses don't visit, I propose these should be done on foot. My main concern is the low frequency of services...

Bit cheaper than the tube though... £3.50 for an all day ticket!

Why do I think of such things?

Because you have far too much time on your hands and need to get out more?

Quite a harsh challenge, looking at the map! Were you thinking about each roundabout having to be traversed in full, or just in part? (Not sure why I'm finding out more info about something I'll never do :? )

Any exit to any exit on the roundabout if on a bus, standing/walking/running on the roundabout if on foot.

So do I, but trains don't go round roundabouts...

Actually now I say that technically loads of NR trains have 'bars' (psh. £4 for a half pint)

If you wanted a Milton Keynes challenge, I'd suggest cycling round the whole massive redway network of cycle paths. Makes the tube map look simple.

How long would you expect that to take?! And can I do it on a motorised vehicle instead? :P

If anyone's wondering, here's the map... http://www.mkweb.co.uk/cycling/document ... ay_Map.pdf
