Fishermans was closed before the covid19 outbreak. There was only a closed sign for weeks , now a fence. Closed because there is a section where the bank is unstable and it keeps sliding. 

Yes heard Stanley park is nuts busy with bikes.

Yeah - it was a bummer to see the wire gate go up on Fishermans.  But you can still get over to the FSR that heads out to the resevoir if you take the spur connector down.  Just don't bother on a weekend, that zone is nuts now with all the people that have discovered the outdoors.

Yes it's crowded for sure on weekends on the demo forest road but if you get out to the dam . Doing the lap thru Bear Island, stopping at lost Lake north is a great day out and very few people out that far. Seen zero in the last few laps thru there. Dunno what will happen with fisherman's , that unstable slope section needs a major reroute of some sort but looks like a difficult project to remedy.

It's been on like Saigon down here, none of the pressures in the SeaTown treeline fringe like in Van. I'm not riding into the city to work so it's a different line every ride and the roads are empty if you hop on the pavement bike. Been peeling off hybrid routes; ones comprised of classic road, mtb and enduro moto lines but all munged into one ugly beatdown ride. Working in getting back to riding 12hrs comfortably, up to 7 now with just a bottle of water and a splif bar so I think I'll be there in another couple months of work. An interesting time to ride for sure....
