Tuesday morning I cycled the 9.4km Flightpath around Victoria Intl. Airport. This is an excellent cardio-exercise bike ride. It feels more like ten miles that ten kilometres.
Afterward, I toured the BC Air Museum with my friend, Dan Waldie as my guide. Every time I go there I see and learn things which were missed during previous visits.
Thanks for the grand tour, Dan.

Thanks for your comments, Eric.
Yes, that's quite an air museum you have there.
And quite a pathway!
We last walked it in 2014 and I last cycled if September 4 2012
There's been lots of improvements since then.

Thanks again for viewing and commenting.
Yes, Victoria is known as The Cycling Capital of Canada and The Flight Path is a part of the attraction.
On Vancouver Island we have one the best cycling trail systems in the world. Laughing

Good to hear that, Bill. Muenster, the city, where I live was a couple of years ago voted to be the best city in the world to live in (cities with less than 300,000 citizens). One of the reasons next to its cultural activities and modern healthcare facilities was its extensive cycling trail system, which was regarded as unrivaled in the world. Today we have slightly over 300,000 citizens and over 500,000 bicycles.

Whenever I get visitors, who drive to Muenster by car, I tell them that they have to be extremely careful with bicyclists. They are all over the town and its outskirts and of course they believe that they own the city Laughing Laughing

Münster is an amazing place to live and cycle
I checked the "Leeze" out on the Tubes and it sure looks nice and flat -- yahh!
The newest trail on Vancouver Island is a little more RUSTIC Rolling Eyes Laughing
Thanks for educating us on your marvelous hometown.
