Recently 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 idiosyncratic contribution to the Tube 150 celebrations, we walked this route with some of you back in Easter 2013. And what fun it was. Here's the route mapped, in case you'd like to recreate the walk yourself.

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