We all could use a moment of solitude right now. Whether your moment is riding your bike, going for a walk, or disconnecting from media, we hope you find your version of solitude.

This crisis is impacting every corner of humanity. In these times, we need to be responsible humans and adhere to the guidelines provided by our local authorities. Bikes are what bring us together. We need to limit group activities now so that we can ride with one another again soon. If you can still enjoy the outdoors on a bike, please do so in solitude and make good choices along the way.

For those that may be concerned about the making of this video during a time like this, we shot this two weeks ago when this crisis was just beginning in the United States. We could see the wave coming, and knew we would all be feeling the stress soon. We want to assure you that we went about making this video responsibly, with only three people involved. Lars intentionally rode at a pace that was safe for him. We understand that riding bikes is inherently dangerous. We hope that you enjoy this video, but please recognize that going out for a ride in this current situation may not be the healthiest decision. We hope you all take this seriously and proceed cautiously. One day in the future we will be able to get back outside and ride with our friends.

 Some people think I'm just slow, but really I've just been riding at conservative Coronavirus pace since before it was cool.

 Love it. Love what Transition stands for, how their employees/riders have treated me over the years. I will be a die hard Transition rider FOR E V E R (spoken like Squints in The Sandlot).

 My dogs remind me daily that we need to go ride or hike, four dogs will do that to ya.

I've got the next week off from work, planning to build trail, ride, sleep, eat good food, and not talk to patients about the virus.

Go ride, get off the TV, avoid the news (it ain't new), and live life like you mean it.

 Just did the same thing with my pooch in Cape Town before the whole country goes into 21 days of total isolation. Boys aren't messing about here. 2 guys charged with attempted murder for being diagnosed with C19 and just carrying on with everyday life as normal. We're set for 1814400 moments of solitude!

 I've got an older trail dog too so my rides with him tend to be slower, easier with lots of stops....hmmmm, I'm thinking maybe one more Fat Bike ride tonight before all the snow melts, I know he's up for it.

 Loved every Transition I've ever had! (Blindside and a Bottle Rocket) Doing the school grind now so I'm living that used bike life but I cant wait to fill my garage with Transitions. New scout looks amazing, one day I'll have a TR11, patrol, scout and a PBJ all lined up and looking sexy as hell in the garage!! You guys rock @transitionbikecompany, working hard to be a part of the industry and hopefully one day work for a company as epic as yours!

 what's the story with the biking in Bellingham? looked on trail forks just out of interest and all the biggest peaks surrounding the city have no recorded routes at all. the only busy spot is beside the town. there some kind of rule against biking on those spots?

 I always display my bike across the trail when deep in a moment of solitude.

 Is it still solitude when shared with your poochie, a camera crew and thousands of users?

 A moment if solitude... Till someone starts telling CUT, OK go back to the top of that burn and try it again with a little more if an outside line and the kicked out the rear a bit harder so we can get some slo mno roost going.... CUT OK go back all the way this time and take the run again with the drone in the front this time. CUT, OK go back to the top and take the while run again with the drone in super follow mode. CUT, OK go back to the... I could do this for my whole lunch break....
