Meet the First ETE Trekkers 

The East Coast Greenway Alliance "people trail" from Maine to Key West is a project which over the past 10 years has labored to develop a pedestrian/bike trail through the densely populated urban centers of the Eastern United States. Starting early this September, twelve volunteer cyclists will embark on the first 2600 mile End-To-End tour from Calais, Maine to Key West, Florida arriving in Key West Nov 3, 2004. Eric Weis of the ECGA kindly sent us a draft of the itinerary including dates and locations as well as a script of the events and mileage sets. If you plan to attend any of the stations along the trail please make your plans in advance and contact the ECGA for further details.

If you can't be on wheels for this historic bike event you may still participate with your pledge to support the riders who must each raise $10,000 in contributions which will provide for the continued expansion of the trail. Currently 50% of the pathway is complete or under construction with the remainder of the proposed additions used as alternate routes until completed.

Volunteer cyclists are provided web sites at the Greenway home page. You can read their stories there and contact them directly if you wish to pledge or simply say hello.

If you do attend part of the End-To-End tour this fall write and tell us about your experience, we'd love to hear about it. We'll publish your story and pictures in our guest features section.
