I'm not totally disagreeing with you but does simply riding a bike make you part of a 'cycling community' any more than walking makes you part of a 'pedestrian community'? Not everyone that rides a bike feels the weight of all other cyclists on their shoulders, nor do they concern themselves with representing a community. If someone feels strongly about this issue, maybe start an educational outreach or something? A lot of people just don't think about cycling as a responsibility. It's just a way of getting around.
