How Many Roads Must A Man Walk Down?*

*With thanks to Bob Dylan for our title.


Yesterday we blogged about the London Walker who joined us on nearly two dozen London Walks in one week (catch up with that post HERE). Today we're blogging some of the responses from our many other dedicated followers of London Walks (to paraphrase that great 60's hit from The Kinks). Thanks for joining us guys, and thanks also for keeping in touch! We look forward to seeing you "out there" soon…






One a day, just like an apple, keeps the doctor away.  Unless, of course, your guide is one of the doctors who lead our London Walks.




Looking forward to seeing you Jenn! Do say "hey" if you join one of my London Walks (it's Adam blogging here).




Thanks Anne! We'll be here! 



12 or 13 in an Olympic year? Deserves a medal in its own right, Janet! 




Thanks so much Donna. October is a great time to visit us in London.



Now THAT'S dedication. Another song springs to mind. Keep Right On To The End of the Road! Thanks Ellie!

Race The Tube – In A Wheelchair

Last month we shared the video Race The Tube, one man's attempt to beat an Underground train on foot. You can catch up with that earlier post HERE.

Here's a powerful sequel, made to draw attention to the issue of step-free access on the London Underground:  Race the Tube – In A Wheelchair…

The Dedication of the Long Distance Walker

Here's LW's Richard III paying tribute to a marathon London Walker who joined us on almost two-dozen London Walks this month!



This is Paul Wakelin (centre of the picture above, wearing the baseball cap).

He is from Bradwell in Derbyshire.  

He went on 23 walks between 20th and 28th of September. 

The picture above was taken on the All Change at St. Pancras Walk.





Richard III

Richard III, scion of a Lord Mayor of London,  is a writer, actor, director and stand-up comic. And the only London Walks guide to have addressed the United Nations!

3000 Blog Posts! Thanks For Reading!

Dear Daily Constitutionalists and London Walkers,

We've just gone past the 3000 blog posts mark here on The Daily Constitutional – and we couldn't do it without you!




Thanks to everyone who reads, contributes and joins us on London Walks! 

We'll start our blogging journey toward 4000 posts (!) later today with a shout out to a MARATHON London Walker written by London Walks guide and Daily Constitutional stalwart Richard III. We'll also post an extraordinary little film raising awareness for fully accessible tube stations.

Thanks again!


Adam

In & Around London… NFL at Wembley Part Two #NFLUK

Monday is mute on The Daily Constitutional (well, almost mute) – because Monday is the day when we post five images captured in and around London by London Walks Guides and London Walkers.


Collated on a theme or an area, if you've got some great shots of our capital and want to join in send your pictures to the usual address.





A great night was had at Wembley last night – thanks again to the Miami Dolphins for their outstanding hospitality!
