Mountain Bikers as a user group are easily identified, self-shaming, low-hanging fruit, and folks need to get some perspective. Pedaling up to the forest today, in the rain, there's not a single construction site in North Vancouver closed down. Some guys putting shingles on one of the steepest roofs I've seen. A smoker on every corner. Multiple transit buses (because how else would grocery store workers who can't afford to live on the Shore get to work?). People running red lights, blowing through crosswalks, and generally driving like assholes. Going out in the woods, riding within your limits, practicing patient and friendly physical distancing with fellow travelers - these are not no-risk activities but leaving the house to be in the forest is still safer than just about anything else you can leave home to do right now. Look after your mental and physical health.
