It's fair to say that the 38 bus route from Clapton to Victoria enjoys cult status. It's supposedly the most frequent service on the network. Everyone seems to know where it goes. The first New Bus For London (AKA Boris Bus) operates on this line. And the route is precisely 100 years old on 16 June.
To mark that anniversary, and because bonkers walks are the new rock and roll, Maggie's cancer charity is organising a sponsored walk along the route. You can trek the 7.5 miles any time you want between now and 14 September, on your tod, in a group, in fancy dress...however you like. Just sign up here and get fundraising.
The target fundraising for each entrant is £38, to match the bus route. To further ratchet up the numerology, this is also the cost to Maggie's every time someone walks in its doors seeking support.
