The East Coast Greenway Alliance (ECGA) is one of the longest uninterrupted bike trails in the world that provides riders with 3,000-miles of route to cross from coast-to-coast. The trail is located from Maine all the way to Florida and is designed to provide avid bikers a safe, convenient and well-mapped out route to take to explore the U.S. via a bicycle. The design encourages an alternative and more environmentally friendly way to explore the nation's states as oppose to the more common ways of flying or driving by car.

The ECGA is a feat in logistics that provides a trail that runs vertical through the north east of the U.S. from the top of the country to the bottom. Unlike many bike routes that are interrupted by roads and urbanization, the ECGA runs straight through providing a safe biking path along rivers, railroads and backcountry.

Currently the trail offers 850-miles of the intended route, with the rest on its way.
