Tax for biker minority

You are 100 percent correct in proposing a bike tax in Seattle [“Tale of two cycling cities, Chicago and

Honolulu,” James Vesely column, Dec. 14].

The gas tax and general fund have been providing millions of dollars for bike lanes and paths to be used by a small, but vocal, minority of citizens.

It is about time the bike riders participated in paying for the facilities they enjoy.

— Walter Appel, Lynnwood
