Bike Riding Tax

Colorado has been kicking around a "sugar tax" lately to close their budget gap.  In honor of Colorado Governor Bill Ritter, I am proposing a bicycle riding tax.  It turns out that too much bike riding can be hazardous to your health.

Anyone wishing to ride their bike while wearing goofy skin tight bicycle shirts and shorts would be required to be licensed and pay a fee.  Those wishing to wear a singlet while riding would pay a higher fee.  If you want to ride in a group of three or more you would need an additional group biking stamp.

These restrictions are needed to prevent breaking 5 or more ribs and should not have a large effect on people's bike riding habits.  These are much needed reasonable restrictions.
