Sorry, although expecting this to be the date for some time I'm not able to get to London this weekend. I'm sure it will be great and good luck to everyone.

this looks like the worst turn out for a zone 1 day for some time?

Maybe, just maybe, for social. But no promises yet.
After you, madam - I'll wait for the next direct train to Mill Hill East.

I've booked my coach tickets to London on the 29th. Not sure what I'll be doing all day but I'll definitely be there for the social (as long as someone tells me where it is!).

By all means, come around and join us! If you can make Liverpool Street by midday, you can be around for the draw, which is an important part of the tradition at least. Should you choose to complete the challenge, you are under zero obligation to run; it will give you a taste of some of the things we talk about (getting lost at Aldgate East and the disaster zone that is King's Cross St. Pancras come to mind immediately), and you get to see every station in Zone 1.

Thanks, but sadly my coach doesn't arrive at Victoria until 1250.

I did my own version of that last month at Canning Town :(
and the disaster zone that is King's Cross St. Pancras come to mind immediately), and you get to see every station in Zone 1.


Maybe I'll do my own mini-version of the challenge - like visiting every station on the Waterloo and City line :)

(I probably have travelled through every station in zone 1 at some time in my life, by the way.)
