East Coast Greenway
The East Coast Greenway represents a massive undertaking – when completed, the system will connect nearly 3,000 miles of bicycle friendly routes! That means you can hop on your bike in Canada and hop off in Key West.
The Southeast PA section of the greenway is still under construction. About a third of the 67-mile route is complete, mixing on road and car-free cycling routes, with remaining portions in the planning and design phases. The Greenway takes advantage of Bicycle Route E, trails along the Delaware River and the Schuylkill Banks, The Spring Garden bicycle lanes, and is soon to include the 58th Street Connector and the Delaware Avenue Trail from Allegheny Ave to the Betsy Ross Bridge.
Stay tuned for some very exciting potential changes to the Spring Garden bicycle lanes. Recently, the Pennsylvania Environmental Council issued an RFP for a design to make this the most bicycle friendly street in the City of Philadelphia!
