I honestly do not know the answer to the question that I am asking.

What taxes do cyclists pay?

Roads are paid for by taxes. The taxes come from a variety of sources. Some come from gas taxes. I don't know the breakdown. It might be a worthwhile effort to articulate the costs and payment system. When I was a child, each bike had a licence that was cheap enough for children or their parents to pay. Are Hamilton cyclist taxed for their use of the roads?

Clearly, the times have changed as far as the use of bicycles as a means of transportation for some. I don't see cars being replaced in the next ten years but possibly dedicated bike lanes are needed in some places. Electric bikes are another issue from my perspective though.
