Virginia Committee for the East Coast Greenway

The Virginia Bicycling Federation (VBF) Long Distance Routes Committee consists of volunteers who coordinate route selection and undertake advocacy efforts to move the East Coast Greenway ahead in Virginia. The Committee also supports similar efforts for US Bike Routes and intrastate routes. By building support and partnerships with citizens, public agencies and organizations at the local and state levels, the VA Committee is helping to get the ECG on the ground, mile by mile.

Support the Effort in Virginia

The Virgina Committee consists of volunteers who dedicated their time and resources to advocate for the creation of trails throughout the state. Please help the Committee create the ECG in Virginia by volunteering your time, becoming a member or sponsoring a mile of trail.

Recent accomplishments of the VA Committee include:

  • Designation of Rail Trail Park in Ashland and support for regional trail planning through Ashland south into Hanover County
  • Designation of Belle Isle Trails across and along the James River in Richmond
  • Completion of the ECG Trail Guide by Virginia Department of Conservation and Recreation and Virginia Department of Transportation

The VA Committee currently needs volunteers to:

  • Get out and travel the route and report issues
  • Support ECG designation of trails completed or underway in Suffolk and Colonial Heights

Sponsor a Mile of the ECG in Virginia

Mile sponsors will have their inscriptions posted on our website, and eventually posted in a kiosk along the route in Virginia. Learn more
