Cycling & Pioneering for the greater cause — a Greenway version of the Appalachian Trail (without the wilderness!)

This November, I will bicycle (& skate) my way to Key West, Florida.  It is the finale of my pedal-powered journey beginning (for me) in Bar Harbor Maine in 2015 — cycling southbound a week+ per year.

But, I don’t ride for me.

I ride  — with a group of cyclists, test riders who are activists and pioneers for you, your friends, your family and future generations who crave safe travels that don’t involve a cars.  I pedal-power this distance for walkers, joggers, skaters, cyclists and those in wheelchairs who need trails & safe passages for commuting, recreating or just needing a dose of nature.

My fellow cyclists and I are part of The East Coast Greenway Alliance — a non-profit who works with communities along the Eastern seaboard to build or bridge trails from Maine to Key West that are car-free &/or safe-passages.

My ask, in this final  push to Key West — is that you join me.  Join me via a one-time tax deductible donation (any amount is truly appreciated) to the East Coast Greenway Alliance.

Why donate? 

  • You get to play a part of something big
  • What part is that?  Building an ‘Appalachian Trail’ (so to speak) on the East Coast — without the wilderness!
  • You will receive a personal note of gratitude from me
  • You get to experience the final test-ride in November via my blog (yes, reading is optional!)
  •  You will receive a high-five honorable shout-out in my blog at the end of the ride — after all YOU made it possible.  (read prior ECG cycling travels here)

Thank you, for reading, being a part of this effort and donating any amount you can.  Click DONATE to begin. Many thanks for your support — and making non-car travels safe for generations to come.
