To be honest the cheakamus trail is a good trail to ride. Very xc and is usually one of the ones my xc buddies hit often. Lots of options and looping right in that location. Classic trails in town you have to see
Kill Me Thrill Me - Classic uphill war with some excellent downhill lines, Sorry not sure of the length but this is a must hit for xc guys. This represents xc in Whistler
Comfortably Numb - New trail, 26km of single track and changes terrain 4 times. Is fast becoming the best trail in town for xc guys to ride as it is longish and technical with some great sites.
River Runs Through it (not really close to where you are but...) - this is a technical trail that everyone must see. Stunted and fun for almost all levels, not elevated. I try to get everyone to hit this spot as it is a unique trail.
After that (or if those don't appeal due to their location), you are close to function junction. You could ride the riverside trails, highline trail (both double track non techy), trash and trainwreck (which may be closed, but it is similar to River Runs Through It, both trash and trainwreck are techy single track)...
Also I don't know what kind of Kayaking you are doing but if you like flowy rivers and big lakes with great views take a run from Alta Lake to River of Golden Dreams and across Green lake. Some fanatasic views and a fun afternoon jaunt. Those are on that map as well.
And welcome to whistler
 Forgot one good xc trail. Right out of function (near where you are) is a trail called Flank. This is a gruelling up with some fun downs. Not that technical and is more similar to a double track than tight single track but still a good ride. Depending on fitness, you should be able to ride flank -> Whip me Snip me and alta lake road -> Function in about 1.5 hours.
