Anyone tried it?
& Does it count as a London challenge?

Well, it's run by TfL, so it's no less valid than the DLR Challenge, for example.

Yeah, I've thought about doing this and will probably give it a go sometime. I've got a route, but in all honesty there aren't many variations you can have.

yeah, it's just like... wimbledon to elmers end, elmers end to beckenham, then new addington. or the middle two reversed, or the whole thing reversed.

wait for them to extend it to crystal palace and sutton, then it'll be worth doing!

Wow, year old bump :)

I'm thinking about taking a crack at this myself and setting the inaugural time soon.

I did Wimbledon to Elmer's End (with one change) as part of the London Boroughs challenge.

I also admit to doing Wimbledon to Merton Park while trying to reach Clapham South during the Random 15 on Saturday :(

There's an outside chance I'll be taking it tomorrow.
Presumably it's a competitive Wimbledon-Morden option?

I'll be using it to link up with the recently reopened East London Line, which must be completed as part of a Full Network Challenge according to the ruleset that Guinness emailed me yesterday.

I might be a slow drinker, but I can manage more than one pint per year :)

I didn't read the date stamp, and thought the ELL was reopening as a tube line!

My completion for this was very good... Even if I say so myself! But it was a mix of planning, training and luck! But maybe I am secretly Hugo's twin?
