Sorry, wrong website. It's actually www.680news.com
Here's the quote...
"We're scraping by as it is, so we don't have the income to be able to create this revenue for the city,"

This is such a cash grab. 
Cyclists of all kinds use the city streets and if you're going to try and gain revenue, why not go the extra mile and license everyone? *sarcasm*

I think I might start a petition.
Any thoughts?
