The ECG Week a Year Tour is a fundraising bike ride for the East Coast Greenway (ECG), a 2,900-mile trail route that goes from the Canadian border in Maine to Key West, Florida (www.greenway.org).
The ECG is designed to be safe and accessible for people of all ages and all abilities. Since its founding 21 years ago, over 800 miles of greenway (28%) have been completed and the route is accessible to over 45 million people. The route will eventually be entirely on greenway separated from car traffic.
From August 18 to 24th, 45 people will ride 307 miles from Hartford, Connecticut to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The ride will both explore the ECG and raise awareness about this exciting project. Towards this end, each rider has committed to raise $500 for the East Coast Greenway Alliance, which will help support the development of more greenway sections!
All donations are tax deductible, and donations to someone’s tour of any amount will give you a year membership in the East Coast Greenway Alliance, the non-profit that oversees creation of the East Coast Greenway. Thank you for helping make communities throughout the Eastern Seaboard safer, healthier, and more sustainable!
