Tell Eric Ulrich What You Think of Bike Licensing

Think that mandatory license plates for bikes is a bad idea? That it'll drain city resources and put a barrier between New Yorkers and a popular, efficient, and green transportation mode? That bike licensing is trying to solve a problem that only exists in some lawmakers' imaginations? Now's your chance to let Queens Republican Eric Ulrich know.

Ulrich called for the city to require ID tags on all bicycles last week and says he'll have legislation to that effect on February 2, according to Gothamist. If you've been longing to explain to Ulrich just why the idea is so misguided, head over to Transportation Alternatives' website and send him an e-fax. You could, for example, remind him that his constituents face much more pressing safety concerns than bicycles that lack ID stickers.

Take a few minutes to stand up for bicycling and write him now.
