Haha, I love how little you know about BC. The dryest parts of the province get an average annual snowfall of 40 cm. Don't spread misinformation by just making things up.
Even in Vancouver, the mildest part of the entire province, they still get 55cm of snow, plus constant rain. It's not uncommon to get 3 straight weeks of rain during the winter, where the average temperature is 3*C. Sound like fun weather for riding to you? How do you think the trails stand up to that?

40 cm a year? In ontario we're getting 30cm today! We have run out of places to put it. My front lawn is over 10ft high. This picture was taken last week so it doesn't include what we're getting today.

Check out my neighbour in the background trying to level off his snowbank to make room for more snow. I have a feeling that I won't be biking for a while

I am taking about the driest part of BC? I do know my stuff about the climate in Vancouver though, rainfall can vary from something like 700mm to 1200mm, and usually the city will never see any snow.

And I do know sometimes it can be pour for long peroids of time (that’s Vancouver for you) but can't you find an hour in the whole day that it is not raining?

Yes, when you said "all the guys from BC" you included those of us that live in other places than just vancouver. Don't stereotype the entire province.

theres no on or off season there's just time to ride your bike. half of the year the weather for rding your bike sucks, and half of the year (as in north van) it rains get yourself a jacket and some warm clothes and get on the bike.
