Can you spot yourself in the crowd on the Cally Road for the Olympic Torch relay?

Remarkable crowds out on the Cally this morning for the Olympic Torch Relay.  Can you spot yourself in this cycle-cam video of a big section of the crowd? (link to film)

And another one (link to film) including the police motorcyclist moving me on at the end (he had a job to do).

After an amusing blunder when the torch bus convoy over shot New Wharf Road for the start at the Canal Museum everything seemed to go smoothly.  Here’s some pics of the Caledonian Road, probably as we are never likely to see it again.

Thanks to Karl Wilding of NCVO based on the canal and Claire Lowe (for the Offord Road shots).

      If anyone has a photo of the flame/crowds outside the Hemingord Arms Pub on Offord Road, please could they post it? I would love to see it – thanks.

        Ace&Lion (artists on The Cally) are pulling together photos taken by the crowd who lined the road during the Torch Relay. They are making a montage and I think will be putting it on display …
