Went up to Squamish yesterday on a first ride on my "new" bike. Ended up getting stuck in traffic heading up to the music festival. Ended up passing the gas station by Starbucks and heading up to Alice Lake .. no traffic there and back but holy hell - by the time i started heading back, the lineup to the same intersection was at least 1.5-2 hours wait.
Of course, when i thought i can relax a bit we got to the 60k zone and was doing about 75 when i noticed a glare off of the police officer's glasses and his 'dar sticking up from the underpass merging with the highway... clever bastard.
Hope nobody had to get stuck in that traffic though ... and if you are planning on heading up there, dont.
