Say Whaaaa?:

Roads are not just for cars. If you look into the history of North American cities, you'll find that paved roads first came into being as a result of the demand for bicycle use.

And contrary to popular misconception, drivers do not pay for roads. Municipal roads are payed for out of property taxes, which people pay even if they don't own a car.

I use a bicycle year-round as my primary mode of transportation. So if you ask me to pay for your roads and then expect me not to use them, aren't you kind of recieving social assistance from me?

And then you have the nerve to criticise subsidized housing. So much for personal responsibility.
