Eight-year-old dude wants bike lanes

The oil spill is a terrible thing. Part of the reason it happened is because of cars. Our cars do not need as much oil as we use. The city council should put a lane for bikes. The sidewalk is a lane for people; highways [are] for cars. There is no lane for bikes and it’s not safe to ride on highways or sidewalks.

I am 8 years old. I [would] ride almost everywhere in Asheville, but it is too dangerous.  Other people agree with me.

Please make a lane for bikes.
