One of the challenges is to get people to cycle in the wintertime only 21% of the population between 16 and  84 years of age cycle daily in the winter season against 47% in the winter season. Lots of effort has been made already Umeå has a grid of bicycle routes that are kept clear  of snow in the winter, there is even a heated cycle/pedestrian bridge on the busiest route in town.
