Someone mentioned to me it perturbs them to have cyclists on the roads when he pays for gas for his car which in turn maintains our roads thru taxes. I was stumped on the road use part (nevermind I'm saving natural resources, etc).
What gives me the right as a cyclist to use our well maintained roads in Portland? I ride the roads anyways. I refused to use an MUP or bike path. I would hate to pay to ride my bike on the road, but what's the justification for road upkeep and maintainance?
