Well, I found the arsed that I needed to organise myself for the zone 1 tube challenge, and have booked the 5th (co-incidently election day -- gives me a good incentive to vote nice and early before I forget!) and 20th (the day itself) off work for the purpose.

Next I need a stopwatch.

</a></b></a>hoiho: it would be great if you came, but I really don't want to be trying to do it as a team — I think watching out for teammates would be more stressful than then the stress-relieving effect of having someone else along. (Does that make sense?)

What do you need the first day for? planning of some sort? A trial run?

Catch up on sleep beforehand?

Trial run, plus getting an idea of where the routes are for the overground "runs" between stations. And looking out for any obvious pinch-points etc.

Can I also suggest using it to time interchange runs inside stations (anywhere from the potential 0-minute transfer between Bakerloo and Victoria at Oxford Circus to the interminably long corridors at Green Park)? Or is that something you've already got in a spreadsheet somewhere?

I wish :).

The only changes I'm actually worried about are Bank and King's Cross — both of which I know reasonably well. Crossing Paddington in a small timeframe is, umm, interesting of course, but that's down as a "run" on my crib sheets.

Easiest change I've got is probably Earl's Court (District -> District).

Geoff's journey times map is quite handy, however (even if it is missing Bayswater/Paddington).

Actually, Charing Cross (Bakerloo -> Bakerloo) might be easier, I don't know.
