I'm not living near the North Shore anymore, so my response might be different if my trails were as challenging as yours. But i continue to ride, mostly solo. If i'm riding alone i don't do risky stunts or high-consequence moves. Hurting myself alone in the woods would be a bad idea at the best of times. And i have been riding for 12 years without ever ending up in hospital. The likelihood of this pattern changing over the next 2 months is so small that it wouldn't make a difference to my overall risk profile. Riding has physical and mental health benefits which might very well outweigh the risk of crashing on moderate rides. Mental health (and consequently suicides) will become a huge issue in society when social isolation (=loneliness) goes on for months.
