Considering such a small % of Americans actually own bikes or use the trails...it's actually rather arrogant to expect all to contribute for the few on something which is more luxury than necessary.

About half of all Americans own and ride bikes, and 100 million people use trails (which aren't just for bikes). Furthermore, we often pay for things that only a few people will use. I doubt I will ever be rescued by the Coast Guard and neither will you, but I'm OK with funding their ability to rescue the few people who will ever use it. Etc... It's not arrogant, it's good policy. We're talking about a very small amount of money.
