"The greenway, a cyclist's version of the Appalachian Trail, begins near the Canadian border in Calais, Me., and ends at a beach in Key West, Fla. In between, it snakes through 15 states and the District of Columbia, hundreds of towns and countless neighborhoods, forming a seamless route — free of traffic lights and exhaust-spewing cars — for people who want to travel the East Coast on their own power. At least it does on paper. So far, only 20 percent of the East Coast Greenway has been built and designated."
