do cyclists beg?

I've been hit on by kids at the hardware store, mall, grocery store etc. asking for change to support their hockey, baseball, soccer, figure skating, swimming, gymnastic teams and probably 50 other things as well over the years but so far no cyclists. How do you think the mall manager will take my request for permission to solicit Saturday mornings so help defray the expenses of my hobby?
Any roadie, trackie, MTBer kids begging at your mall?

After my kid started racing I was about ready to send him out to beg for money heheh. Just wait until you have to keep 3 or 4 bikes going...
