New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride

Bike NYC to Philly

From cheesecake to cheesesteak! The East Coast Greenway Alliance’s inaugural New York City-to-Philadelphia Greenway Ride travels from one iconic city to another, with lots of beautiful Garden State greenway in between. The 2-day, 130-mile fundraising ride will feature hundreds of riders from the region and beyond. After departing Manhattan we'll end for the day in Princeton, New Jersey, and head on the next day for an end-of-ride celebration in Philadelphia.

Proceeds from this ride will benefit the nonprofit East Coast Greenway Alliance. In particular, your fundraising will help accelerate the development of the route in New York City, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Roughly 1,000 miles of our Maine to Florida route is on protected greenways, and our organization is working daily to move the entire route off-road as close to 2030 as possible.
