I’m a test-rider & fundraiser for the East Coast Greenway Alliance – a non-profit. I bicycle with a group of 40 — who experience the current state of roads-n-trails network — to recommend what needs to be improved. We raise funds for car/free or safe passages city-by-city from Maine to Key West. Think, the Appalachian trail along the entire US East Coast, without the wilderness.
Can’t you just bicycle on the current roads?
Sure — if you like playing russian roulette with traffic. The goal is to create an off-road experience for as many miles as possible — so that families, children, walkers, joggers, bicyclists and anyone who wants to enjoy being outside — can do so safe from traffic.
Who’s driving this Greenway?
The East Coast Greenway Alliance — The East Coast Greenway is a collaborative effort that has attracted more than $1 billion in public investment in its first 25 years. The dream of a 3,000-mile protected biking and walking route represents a commitment to public health, environmental sustainability, economic development, and civic engagement. Together, we are connecting people to nature and communities via a safe, accessible Greenway.
Can I help?
Yes, you can.
Any tax-deductible amount you can afford to donate helps to create this Greenway of safe passages for all to enjoy — along our beloved East Coast. Any donation — you will receive a personal, sincere thank you e-note, from me
Thank you for taking the time to read. Not everyone is in a place where they can donate, and I am just grateful you are in my life.
