    We need to end this scourge, of pedal less conveyances.

    My 3 year old daughter would have killed you if you'd taken her balance bike from her.

    A minimum of one pedal should be required.

    There is a man with one leg who cycles in our city. No pedals and he'd struggle. Two pedals would be superfluous.

    I only use pedals because it stops my wife worrying about me when I'm out on my bike.

    I suppose you first have to come up with a definition of what you want to make attaching pedals to mandatory. You will then have to decide what function they will play and wether they can just be attached for decoration or have to have some function. Can they be operated by hand or will it be mandatory to operate them by feet only. If it is mandatory to use feet will persons only possessing one leg be able to use them. Then it will have to be debated and modified and after many years someone will ask what are we discussing and why. Bit like the EU ...

    or the Elliptigo

    Some Finnish chap called Alpo did Paris-Brest-Paris (750 miles on a 200 miles per day time limit) on a kickbike, and I've heard of someone doing a 400k Audax on an Elliptigo
