Default ride or don't ride

what's everybody's thought about riding during this COVID-19 virus circulating around like wildfire. Do you ride in GROUPS or SOLO or NOT RIDING AT ALL

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!

Is this a serious question? It must be rhetorical. Ride. If you ride in a group stay six feet apart and don't swap spit with your boyfriends/riding partners. Duh.

My bike normally comes out of hibernation end of March. This year, maybe a little later. More related to crummy Spring weather. Low 50's starting from the 30's for the next foreseeable forecast Plus I have other vehicle maintenance to get done...

Rides would probably just be me since at the moment no one is getting together which makes sense. Restaurants and bars are closed so maybe pack a sandwich, ride to say a forest preserve, eat, gas up and ride home.
Still riding, but not the same as with friends...

Crazy times. Stay safe and ride safe if you do venture out!!

Ride and ride often. I had some crazy lady yell at me for riding. To which my reply was I was alone on my bike and she had 2 other people in her car. So which one of us was really following proper social distancing. Crazy people suck!!!!

Sounds a tough question I say it is better to stay at home and be safe. This covid-19 thing will soon die. Let's patiently wait.

Different times for sure. Neighbor of 27 years was like we could sit outside and have a cocktail as long as we stayed in our own yards. What is the difference if we were all 12' apart. A fence????
Once it gets a little warmer I'm sitting on the pool deck w/ my wife and dining alfresco. Not doing "normal" things "safely" is the surest way for all of us to go bat **** crazy quick!!

These times are making sane people insane and it'll get a LOT worse once people near you get it. And that will happen for sure. We have not peaked yet and you have to peak before you decline...

I have a fair amount of sticks to burn and thought about offering up the opportunity for people to gather, distantly, but doubt any would come. Looks like me, my cooler and a pack of sausages and a grill fork I guess...
