Don't Stop at the Office....

I was heading into work recently and looked up and saw a sign a couple miles from my house. Wow, if I kept on riding and following these signs, I could be in KEY WEST in 1509 miles!! :) :) A number of years ago, I took a bike vacation and rode from Melbourne, FL to Richmond, VA...and that took about a week and a half (it was about 1100 miles). So it would be another week or so to get to Key West. :)

If you look at the very top of the sign, it shows that the route is the East Coast Greenway (http://www.greenway.org/about.aspx). I know they've been working on this route for a number of years - starting back in 1991. Each year they add more on and off-road trail segments. I'll have to follow this sign sometime (not on a workday!) and see where it leads! :)

1509?! That's quite a bit further than I've ever ridden before. I've gone cross country, but that was with my folding bike, and while I did ride for portions, I also did the train/bus for stretches as well.

Impressive to bike all that way, takes courage to do that. Raleigh has @70 miles of greenways. I want to use Amtrak and biking this summer,
biking interstate, not ready for that yet.

I'd love to do that, Charmaine! That's on my bucket list for when we have to abandon this life-style---but then that'd be b/c of a health issue. :-(

What a great idea. I would love to get on my bike and follow the signs from here to FL!
