Licencing cyclists...what's next? Chainsaws? Drinking? Potato chips? Electric wheelchairs? Or perhaps, finally, breathing?

I do remember reading a statistic years back though, couldn't source it now but you should be able to google it, that compared the "gas-milage" of vegetarian and carnivorous cyclists. Because of the massive amount of petrochemicals involved in conventional farming, and because of the massive loss of nutrition and calories which takes place when grain, corn and soy are turned into cattle, the pamphlet argued that while a vegetarian cyclist had a reletively impressive number of "miles to the gallon", the cyclist working off the caloric energy found in the average hamburger was getting about the equivalent "milage" to a Honda Civic. No idea if it's true, but interesting food for thought.
