Zone 1 Tube Challenge 2006

Travel round zone one in fastest possible time

Zone 1 Tube Challenge 2006

It's that time of year again when people who feel the urge to do a Tube Challenge but don't fancy all of the 275 stations on the system, can have a go at the 64 (I think) stations in zone one. So if you are free on Friday May 19th (skive a day off work or college) the organiser, Chris Presswell, is still taking entries.

However, as Chris says "Anybody unable to get the day off from work/school/college/prison is welcome to join us for an evening of drunken antics, geeky chat and tube-related games (TBC)". I'll keep you posted of the post challenge pub location nearer the time.

Full details are on the Tubechallenge website and there's plenty of discussion about tactics, team names, T-shirts, trophies and other things beginning with T on the Tubechallenge Forum.

Look out for a Tubechallenge quiz this Friday where you can win a copy of Tunnel Vision by Keith Lowe (kindly donated by Graham O'Mara, who really is spoiling us). Tunnel Vision is a novel about a guy who takes part in a personal "stag" Tube challenge on the eve of his wedding, with his essential belongings dotted around the network. Fortunately this year's Zone 1 challengers won't have the added pressure of looking for their passport, credit cards, house keys etc - although it would add a certain je ne sais quois to the proceedings!
