Cyclists pay property taxes, either directly or through part of the rent paid to their landlords. Cyclists pay income taxes. Cyclists pay sales taxes. They pay plenty of taxes, and these sources partially pay for local, regional, and provincial roads. That said, user fees would help put cyclists on a more level playing field when it comes to asking for equality to car drivers who pay both personal and vehicle licenses as well as being required to have insurance. As bike ridership rises and car use drops, these sources of income and requirements for driving will probably become necessary for all vehicles using the roads.
