I'm here in Vancouver, mostly enjoying it but still see myself returning to Scotland in a year or two.
The weather is an improvement, at least its properly seasonal over here and I enjoyed 3 months of sunshine with literally only two or three days of rain last summer. Even when it does rain its still relatively warm and there's not much wind.
Biking is awesome, this goes without saying. I've had a pretty bad run of luck personally, bike being stolen, injuries etc. but if you choose your location well then you could be biking awesome trails any evening of the week. Be expected to have an opinion about trail maintenance though, its quite a divisive topic depending on who you speak to!
Road biking looks pretty tedious, its either in the city or along the side of super busy highways. I'm sure there's good stuff out here but I prefer the sheer wealth of winding hilly singletrack roads we have back in Scotland. I've not even bothered buying a road bike out here and I probably won't.
I think owning a car is the secret to really making the most of things here. I don't, and don't intend to buy one, but that limits me a lot as the public transport infrastructure outside of the city is almost non-existent. I don't really blame them, the country is too big to try and maintain the service we have in the UK, but I miss being able to plan hllwalking/biking trips around convenient train or bus stops and regular service.
Oh, and its expensive out here, but I'm trying to juggle expensive sports and an expensive girlfriend in one of the world's most expensive cities, so I shouldn't be surprised!
