The bottom line is that a lot more people are out mountain biking because if you are not working (and your kids are at home), it is a good way to get some fresh air and exercise. It is time for DNV and BC Parks to acknowledge this and work to increase capacity rather than limiting it. Now that we know that the chances of spreading the virus are dramatically less in an outdoor setting, we should be opening up capacity, not trying to throttle it.
I suspect DNV will be opening the Fromme Parking lot after the long weekend (though I haven't seen anything official). I have not seen anything about BC Parks completely opening up Seymour and Cypress which is concerning. If all parks and associated parking do not open after the long weekend when BC's "Phase II" response takes effect, I hope everyone will start ***politely*** writing emails and getting on social media to get our local outdoor parks, trails and parking lots open again so that people can spread out more.
Dr Bonnie Henry and the other local health officers never gave an order or recommendation that parks, parking lots and trails should be closed so that was actually a bit of regulatory overreach (albeit, done with the best of intentions). She has repeatedly encouraged people to get outside and said the risks of catching something outside are extremely low as long as everyone keeps moving, does not congregate and observes a reasonable physical distance whenever possible.
That said, I hope people will not go into full idiot mode this weekend and next week by gathering in groups, sharing food and drink, or shuttling with 10 of their best buddies crammed in a truck. And when normal parking does open up, it is up to all of us to avoid bunching up in the parking areas and at trail heads to avoid getting them closed again. Recreate but don't congregate.
