V from V for Vendetta apparently ran a minus 10k race

I went through my photos of the 10k race on Saturday last night, looking for some people I knew. I found my friends, but I also came across V from V for Vendetta in the crowd:

And a bit closer:

You have to admire his dedication because he was running backwards:

It must have been a bit disconcerting for the people following him to have him facing them. Gotta love the people who add a bit of colour to the races, eh?

One of my favourite cycling routes

May 28, 2012 @ 08:45 By: gordon Category: Cycling

I have three or four regular routes that I follow when I go cycling. When I’m looking for a longer route, I often take this one, which includes crossing the river over Portage Bridge, riding along the Quebec side of the river to the museum and then crossing back over the Alexandra Bridge before picking up the path on the Colonel By Drive side of the canal. Following the path to Hartwell Locks, it winds its way through the Experimental Farm to home.

The track in the map is from a ride I took last Thursday evening after work.
