Probably the nicest stretch of highway to ride in Western Canada! The views along the way are amazing - the ocean on one side (Howe Sound) and the mountains on the other. The highway was widened and improved for the 2010 Winter Olympics and it's a joy to ride. Lots of sweeping corners, ups and downs and a few decent straights. There are numerous places to pull over and enjoy the scenery. Lions Bay, Porteau Cove (public washrooms) and Squamish to name a few. But don't let the views distract you; keep your eyes open for the handful of meatheads who drive too quickly on this road.
A wonderfully twisty and hilly road, with very little traffic, and glorious views of the lake most of the time. Most of the road was new pavement. Great corners for carving through, although some are a little deceiving in how tight they are. A lovely summertime ride.
