Just have the automakers buy a controlling interest in the bicycle manufacturers. Enough to include one bicycle in their numbers. The undefined miles per gallon of gasoline will throw the whole system into disarray. This was tried by including electric cars in the equation, but those figures can still be traced back to a gallon on gasoline, no matter how small the fraction of each burned gallon of gas used to generate electricity would be. Of course this is also ruined if the cyclist is huffing gasoline fumes.
