Tube Favourite in Great Race Across London
- Taxi, bike and jogger join battle in Big Ben-Canary Wharf dash

ROAD takes on rail today (Friday) in a race across town to find the quickest method of transport in London.

Starting from Big Ben and Westminster Underground station, competitors will high-tail it down to Canary Wharf for the honour of being crowned speed king of the capital.

Last year's winner, a black cab, is one of the favourites again this time out but faces stiff competition from a motorbike, a Jubilee line Tube train, a bus and a brave jogger.

Assuming normal clogged road conditions and a train not held up by signal failure, we expect the Tube to be victorious today, but accept at least one of our assumptions is a precarious one.
