Rhode Island Committee for the East Coast Greenway

The Rhode Island Committee for the ECG is a sub-committee of the Rhode Island Bicycle Coalition (RIBike). RIBike and the Rhode Island Committee consist of volunteers who coordinate route selection and undertake our advocacy efforts to move the Greenway ahead in the state. By building support and partnerships with citizens, public agencies, and organizations at the local and state levels, the RI Committee is helping to get the ECG on the ground, mile by mile.
