A fantastic introduction to bicycle touring, Cape Cod & the Islands has it all! Bicycle along paths and back roads through beautiful Martha’s Vineyard, Nantucket and Cape Cod. Explore island villages and sandy beaches, take a surf lesson with professional instructors, and tour the city of Boston by foot. Carrying personal and group gear in panniers (saddlebags), you will become competent cyclists and adventurers while learning to operate as a self-sufficient team. This summer bike tour is always a hit; join us and see why!
Martha’s Vineyard & Nantucket
Traveling by ferry, we journey to Martha’s Vineyard and Nantucket for endless island fun. Both islands are crisscrossed with user-friendly bike paths that allow us to ride with ease from place to place. There will be plenty of time off the bikes to explore seaside villages like Edgartown, Oak Bluffs & Siasconset. Spectacular sandy beaches abound, and we’ll enjoy long afternoons playing in the sun and surf. We’ll also spend the better part of a fulfilling day as volunteers at a local community farm.
Cape Cod & Boston
On the mainland, we’ll ride the Cape Cod Rail Trail and scenic back roads between Hyannis and Provincetown. Along the way, we’ll stop near Wellfleet and have the opportunity to catch some waves with professional surf instructors. Exhilarating for spectators and participants alike! After basking in the best of Cape Cod, we’ll transfer to Boston where we’ll spend two nights and a day exploring the sights. We’ll enjoy a festive farewell dinner at a local restaurant, and celebrate our accomplishments with laughter and stories of our fantastic 11-day adventure.
