Saturday at Fromme took the cake for me. Decided to take the Hardtail up to Leopard for a nice little XC loop over to Krinkum, Kirkford and out on the Griffins. Can't be that hard to social distance on the fire road, right?? I get to the Expresso/Leopard junction and there's literally 30 people around, some standing close in their riding groups, and some trying to stay distanced. I approached a pinch point with 8 people yaking in a circle on my right, and 4 people grouped together on my left. 1m between these groups, and completely blocking the fire road. The closest guy on the right-group just stared at me like I was an idiot while I spent 20 seconds in a pedal-stand waiting for the two groups to clue in. He/they didn't, and I had to mutter Covid nothings in his ear as I pushed through.  I swear, after Bonnie Henry told everyone to get outside, and that the virus doesn't spread as easily outdoors, 75% of the people decided that meant that the social distancing switch was flicked off.
