To: Austin City Council
We are petitioning the City of Austin to strip the name of Lance Armstrong of of the Lance Armstrong Bikeway.
Lance Armstrong admitted that he cheated and lied to win his record 7 Tours de France. In the process he sued, threatened, intimidated and destroyed the lives of many people who simply told the truth.
During his recent interview with Oprah Winfrey, he continued to lie and distort the truth.
Lance Armstrong is a disgrace to the City of Austin and his name should be removed from all city facilities, specifically the Lance Armstrong Bikeway.
As of 3:30 p.m., the petition had 13 signatures.
