I wouldn't recommend riding from Vancouver to Whistler, as stated before, the highway is under construction in several places which makes the road surface loose, pock marked and a non existent shoulder. The highway is very busy in the summer time and with many people renting cars to drive up to Pemberton for the festival, it will put lots of drivers who don't know the highway on your route.
The route from Whistler to Pemberton is a great ride, it's very scenic, rather hilly and in the summer time, hotter than hell. The ride is about 70km(44miles) there and back, hit it early in the morning and watch for wildlife.
Enjoy the festival.
