This bike path will let you ride from Maine to Florida
The East Coast Greenway project is working toward building a 3,000-mile long bike trail. The plan is to have the trail span all the way from Calais, Maine to Key West, Florida.
The concept was first conceived back in 1991. The idea was to take existing trails and conjoin them with new links.
Though much of the East Coast Greenway already exists, the project is set to bring these sections up to code and connect them altogether.
There are many different adjustments that need to be made in order to ensure the path is safe to travel. For instance, the path must be strong enough to handle a full-loaded touring bike, and wide enough to provide bikers with enough space to pass one another.
So far, 850 miles have been trailed. Another 200 miles should be in place by 2020.
In order for a biker to ride the entire train from Maine to Florida, one would have to travel at least 50 miles a day for a full two months.
If you're interested in taking on this trail, you might want to whip up some trail mix to fuel all the training you'll need!
