I was riding in Victoria while visiting at mom's place last week, but I usually get away with pretty well year-round riding on southern Vancouver Island. Always bring a bike down for a Christmas ride with the Bro.
Back home in the mountains of SE BC, I tend to sneak in rides in November, and this week should be staying warm enough for a few more. Dec-Feb get's shut down (as much due to snow and temp as road salt and gravel), but late March and April can be fine.
Here in the rocky mountains, you can find pockets of winter weather and ice on the roads in all but maybe two months of the year, so you just learn to recognize and deal with it. It's fun and tweaks your skills as long as you aren't stuck in an ice storm. :-)
