    For what you're wanting to do, Endless Biking would be your destination. Their rental bike biz is at the base of Mountain Highway, providing riding access to Fromme and Seymour. They can also help you assess your current skill level and point you at some suitable trails so you don't wind up halfway down a trail only to find that you're out of your comfort zone.

    went, was epic riding. First place I've ridden where I needed an all mountain bike outside of lift riding. The riding, at least the limited area i covered, is technically challenging, harder than the stuff in the bay area, CA. Also the first place I needed a dropper post.

    here's a google my maps with some bike shops on it and the trail I took. see the dark purple spots. Make sure to google offline map the area in case of slow/limited connectin.
    you can train/bus straight to the area. This is much faster during traffic hour than driving. It took one train, and 2 busses, left my luggage with the shop. For pub transportation, you can use your google or apple mobile pay with NFC phone, it works great. If you're visiting vanc, i highly recommend having mobile data; i have tmobile so i get free 2g data which is fast enough for navigating.

    call ahead to see if they renting and try to reserve a bike, many stopped renting earlish in the season. Make sure they provide a helmet, if not bring your own. Bus there, rent the bike and ride the trailhead. I just followed the trail signs that said climbing trail, then descended the offshoots.

    here's a print map of the area.
