    Vancouver in June during World Cup?

    So my wife does public relations for one of the sponsors of the women's World Cup and she will be there to help with media during the event. I was thinking of tagging along with my bike. Would this be a nightmare of a time to come there to ride? Looking to do some long xc/endurance type riding no downhill bombing.

    Small ring in front makes it easier. Small ring in back makes it harder. That blows my mind.

    The Triple Crown (ride all three North Shore mountains: Seymour, Fromme, Cypress) is about the only way to get a long XC ride in Vancouver, but it's not so easy now that the Twin Bridges has been removed after the river flooding.

    But while the World Cup is happening here, you could make the trip 45 minutes north to Squamish and stay there to get long XC rides and DH bombing.

    Thanks for the info. Is there a good source for maps and trail head locations?
