It’s an interesting time. With all that is happening in the world, we need to be careful and act wisely when it comes to how much time we spend with others outdoors. To that end, I thought I’d post a video about a recent ride that, in my opinion, was filled with far too many people. Watch the video to see just how many I ran across during my excursion.
We are experiencing interesting times. The pandemic is a global issue which can be best addressed on a local level. This seems counterintuitive.
Please be safe out there and defer to your local authorities when trying to figure out if it is safe to go out. I cannot stress enough how important it is to stay away from hospitals right now. For the sake of injury, and also to allow the medical professionals all the beds they have for those who need them most, please remember that if you ride, ride safe.
Please let me know if you are aware of any trails in the San Francisco Bay Area that are used little enough to ensure a fairly interaction-free experience. I still want to ride, I simply cannot think of a place where I could do so safely.
Thanks, please subscribe below, and I hope to see you on the trails (eventually)!

Although I agree with your point, you probably picked the worst possible trail as an example. I wouldn’t ride there on a weekend during normal times. If you had just gone over to Priest Rock or Limekiln for it would have been much better. Actually, I was surprised at how quiet it was at the top of St. Joe’s.
You seem to have excellent bike handling skills (unlike me) but you were going awfully fast downhill for that type of crowd. Be careful or you could get a midpen ticket.
