I'm not going to Squamish either way, it's just a question. At the end of the day though I think the whole avoiding non-essential travel thing is pointless when there are so many people traveling for work and other "essential" things.
So seriously, would that ^^^ be a bad thing?
Both things can be true.
Current guidance is "no non-essential travel outside your neighborhood". So if one travels to squamish for work, and brings their bike to get in a lap after, I think it's looking for a loophole to get their squamish fix in.
Is that causing additional risk. No. The Covid risk associated with a solo ride in the forest is near as I see it, so close to zero one should be more worried of an eagle attack.
But that's for solo riding. People travelling to ride with people from other households in a different neighborhood or city? How far off is that from jumping the skytrain to Kits beach for a saturday night dance party?
Somewhere between those two is a reasonable medium. I've landed on solo rides, generally in my neighborhood.
