The man was charged for sexual molestation and damages after police found traces of his semen on the saddle of a woman's bike, according to the Östersunds-Posten newspaper.
The man was first reported in the spring of 2006 when police found sperm during an investigation involving a slashed bicycle tyre.
The breakthrough in the case came after a woman reported seeing the man carry away her bicycle and then start rubbing up against it.
The man was arrested last July and taken into custody.
The 36-year-old man has confessed to the crimes, explaining that he felt an overwhelming calm wash over him when he approached women’s bicycles and smelled the handlebars.
