Tube Challenge Status

Bank Station

TL;DR: I completed walking the Tube on August 24th, 2013 and became the first Canadian to do so. On March 8th, 2014 I officially began my continuation project of walking the entire Overground & DLR networks and on August 9th, 2015 I became the first person to walk the new 2015 tube map.

Keep up-to-date with the latest in my Randomly London v. The Tube Challenge here. I'll post updates about how the whole process is going along with links to all blog posts related to the challenge. For the time being this page will supplant my more general walking goals page.

I'm doing this both as a personal challenge and to raise money for Bowel Cancer UK. If you you'd like to support me, please consider making a donation to via Just Giving here.

Beyond that please follow on any of my various social media accounts. Links can be found to the right hand side of this page.

      Hi Linda,

      Did not use a map per se, just Google maps. Plotted the best way to walk to the next station once I reached one.
