    Riding in the GVRD in September (rain?)

    So I know Vancouver is wet, but just how wet is it in September usually? Im going to be living in Burnaby going to school just for the month, and am still up in the air if I should bother bringing my bike. Im not a huge fan of riding in the rain, but really want to ride while Im down there. So if someone could be honest and maybe help me save a few hundred bucks that'd be cool, but if its not that wet usually, post up so I can ride! From my visits to Vancouver, its always raining, and I can see september being a wet month...
    Thanks

    September can be very nice. It's not until November that it gets really miserable.

    Hey... I am from Kelowna too. (originally)

    Usually, September is pretty nice here. Shouldn't be a problem

    It's a song and a dance, expecially if you have a water resistant jacket & pants.

    September is often the nicest month of the year in Vancouver.
    Transportation is serious business.

    Yep, September is often better than the summer months for riding. October is when the rains hit.

    September is fine for riding.

    Not really good for anything, but they still bring a smile to your face when you push them down a flight of stairs.

    I've had some of the best rides ever in September.

    I usually have my best road trips in Sept. Kids are back in school, most motormomes off the road. Nice warm(low 70's)temperatures(you won't get hot wearing full gear) usually lots of blue sky and the leaves are starting to turn colour. Every year I leave the island and do a trip to the interior. Last year it was actually quite late in Sept and it was still nice.
