To the editor:
I have been a vacationer to Ocean Isle Beach since 1990. I am now married and we have been bringing the family down for two weeks every year since 1999.
My wife and I are both cyclists. We have bonded with the OIB cyclists, and our son has ridden with them before. We have brought friends from home to OIB in the past. Some of them have been cyclists, too.
Like it or not, tourism brings a ton of business to your area. A wider shoulder or even a legitimate bike lane would be a good start to encourage others to the area.
