I'm really not concerned about me as 200,000 of 7.5B ppl have the virus. I wash my hands, work from home, etc. I'm going riding. If it makes anyone feel better, it rained all day, and I was limited to my home gym.1415chris wrote:Mybe not directely, but in the case of accident, you can be placed in the ICU, taking the bead off somewone in serious covid-19 respiratory condition.

It's about you taking up a bed and doctors time when avoidable.
It's about statistics 2000 riders in a weekend.. Likely someone will crash. It's about lowering the burden on the system.
It's also dependent on if your medical services are at breaking point or not.
If your area isn't asking you to stop.. Then it's mostly OK to risk it. If your government says don't do it.. Then don't be an ass just to ride a bike.
