Head For The Trails
Shining Sea Bikeway, for instance, winds 10.7 miles from Falmouth to Woods Hole – and is great for beginners. Making use of a former rail bed, the trail snakes along Vineyard Sound and provides level-stable riding surfaces for its entire length.
There is also the Cape Cod Canal Bikeway, a 7.5 mile path that’s well paved and ideal for families who love to bike. The Canal Bikeway runs along, you guessed it, the Cape Cod canal and offers a lot of great places to stop and enjoy the sites or just have a quiet rest.
A slightly longer trail, the Cape Cod Rail Trail, is a 22 mile trail that follows an old railway right-of-way through Dennis, Harwich, Orleans and other Cape Cod towns. It is a great way to see many of the different sites and landscapes of the local communities.
All Skill Levels
For the more experienced riders the Cape Cod National Seashore offers several great natural trails like the Head of the Meadow bike trail in Truro, the Nauset Bike Trail in Eastham and the challenging Province Lands bike trail in Provincetown.
No matter your biking experience, almost any of the Cape Cod bike trails will suit you and your family – even the little ones!
