Not to the City. And we're talking about urban cycling here (proportionally very few cyclists ride on provincial roads).

It's a (small: equivalent to less than two return trips on the 407) revenue stream for the Province. It is the City that pays to build and maintain municipal roads through property taxes.

In any case, vehicle licensing depends on vehicle weight, so a hypothetical bicycle license would be a little cheaper than a moped, which is $12.

$10 sounds about right for a bicycle. Do you really think it is worth trying to collect $10 from cyclists? With administrative costs you'd be lucky to net $5 per bicycle.
