Nice steady climb. 2 lanes a lot of the way up so cars can pass with no problem. Good consistent climb, no overly steep or flat sections and the few hairpins are smooth and can be taken at speed on the way down. A great ride to get away from the poor riding in Vancouver city.

First time yesterday. I climb slowly due to age and being an ex-smoker, but, apart from the too steep first 500m off of Dollarton highway, The rest was doable on my CX bike with 36 chainring and 11-34 cassette. I mostly used the 32, and changed up 3-4 gears when standing. Broke a spoke within sight of the top, so had to ride brakes most of the way down. I''ll be back!

I did it yesterday for the first time. It''s a real treasure to have so close by, two lanes paved all the way so that it''s super easy for cars to pass you safely. I kept mainly to my highest gear and stayed in the saddle all the way. Now that I know what to expect I can try a little attacking next time. 1hr. 18min.

Mt Seymour is the toughest climp that''s easily accessible to Vancouver-area riders. It starts out tough right away...the first 5k are a grunt. There''s a bit of respite in the middle, but then the final bit is also tough. It''s a good test of your overall fitness level. The road''s a bit rougher than Cypress, and you don''t get the sweeping views (although there is one nice viewpoint looking towards the east), but overall it''s a ''must do'' if you''re a serious rider and find yourself in Vancouver.
