Avid bikers might want to consider a move to Holland, specifically the towns of Zutphen and Utrecht, because they plan on creating heated bike paths. Although this will not affect the summer season at all, and possibly not spring or fall either, they will make riding in the winter much easier and safer. Not to mention that the heated bike paths will save the city tons of money spent clearing and salting the routes for bike-loving Dutch.
The heated bike paths involve a form of passive temperature regulation known as asphalt collector. Since they need to be installed 150 feet under the surface, it will take a cool $40,000 to $70,000 per mile to build the heated bike paths. It will be worth it in the long run.
