Last week we put a puzzle to you: did you work out how to get round the tube map, taking in every single line for just one stop? Tom M did! And quite a few other commenters were close. Here’s our solution, illustrated with almost accurate colour coding:
Note, you could swap Piccadilly Circus for Covent Garden and Moorgate for Aldgate with no consequence; and you could obviously do it in the opposite order.
To add our own idiosyncractic contribution to the Tube 150 celebrations, we’re going to walk this route on Easter Monday. Want to join us?
It’s about 15km or 9.5 miles — which is much shorter than our epic Olympic walk last year. We’ll get photos at every stop, paying tribute to each line along the way. There will tube themed things to entertain us, we’ll stop for refreshment at appropriate places and regale each other with tube tales. We might even compile a list of our favourite interviewees who’ve answered the question “Have you ever been sick on the tube” for Londonist. Heck, if Ben Norum brings some of his home-infused spirits along, we all might be sick on the tube.
Here’s the route mapped. To join us on Monday 1 April, leave a comment or join the Facebook event.

Many thanks to John Wilkes for the puzzle and mapping and Ben Norum for walk enthusiasm.
