The plan was for a couple of rides this weekend.  I headed down to grab the 29er and found it had a flat rear tire.  A quick change of plan, pumped up tires and off on the Specialized.  I wasn't too late.  We did our usual Mt. Doug route.  The seashore variation, which I prefer, was not an option due to the Tour of Victoria grand fondo closing some of the route.  When we turned on to the Galloping Goose at Uptown we ran into police tape and the trail closed.  After a quick chat with some other cyclists we got onto the Trans-Canada Hwy and rode parallel to the closure.  It turned out that a body had been found in the adjoining neighborhood.  Something new on every ride.
