Another option is to invite C and D over to have cake with A and B. And C goes cycling alone and comes back. So many more options.
My whole take on this anxiety attack is, why are you with someone if you have to pretend to be interested in things you don't care for just to keep them in the same room with you? Doesn't sound like much fun and i'd probably still leave once i realized you're not really into it. But if you are such a wonderful person that we want to be together, we'll be together no matter how many hobbies or activities we do separately.
I see how the person who said these things is worried, but it really makes no sense at all and sounds more like a symptom of generalized anxiety. I sometimes have that problem too, but i have taught myself to recognize the difference between my imagination and observation of things that take place outside of my mind.
