    Cool-blue Rhythm Lower Mainland Downhill?

    I went to the bike park at Whistler a few years back and had an absolute blast on an overpriced pig of a rental rig. (First, maybe second time I'd been on a bike in about 15 years or so.)

    Now that the cycling bug has bitten me again I find myself looking off into the mountains dreaming of some downhill goodness. Problem is Whistler is too far and too expensive to make a regular habit of riding, and I have absolutely no idea what Grouse has to offer to the public, if anything.

    Gondola / Ski lift up... Bike down... Repeat. Preferably on the cheap. (Or at least cheaper than Whistler.)

    Where can I go locally to get my fix?

    the only lift accesed downhill area in Vancouver is in Cypress Mountain:

    Also, trails in Seymour are shuttle accesed:

    Rumour has it Cypress might not open the bike park this year because of Olympic construction.
