Overnight Trip

Epic four-day adventure that starts with a climb to the summit of Massachusetts’ highest peak (Mt. Greylock) before coming right back down to cross the length of the state. We’ll keep cycling to the westernmost point — Provincetown, MA to dip in the ocean — enjoying the best ice cream, bakeries, brews, and burritos across the state before catching the last ferry back to Boston, perchance?

Experience bicycling Cape Cod in a day: train, ferry, bicycle path, farmers' market, salt water taffy, ice cream, bakery, lighthouses, & many beaches to dip in.

 

Meet the Summit to Sea Adventure team on their last day from Greylock to finish together in Provincetown https://www.crw.org/content/adventure-ride-summit-sea

 

You must purchase return ferry ticket in advance of starting the ride. Capacity is low. Ferry will sell out.

 

Start at 7:40 aboard the Cape Flyer train from South Station to Hyannis ($22, plenty of capacity for bicycles). Navigate out of town to reach Cape Cod bicycle path to enjoy several parks, beaches, & food stops along the way. Visit the small towns of Orleans, Wellfleet, & Truro before arriving Provincetown for snack or early dinner.

 

Plan on 14–16mph pace, plenty of stops, & leisurely day.

 

For a distance of 100km & elevation gain of 666m, you could arrive Provincetown just in time for the ferry at 16:00 ($70). This is also a tour, not a race. We will likely take our time to arrive into town, dine & stroll around before sailing on 19:30 ferry, arriving Boston at 21:00.

 

This trip is:

 

  • Suitable for intermediate to advanced bicyclists
  • Come prepared with sufficient navigation tools such as GPS, map, cue sheets, smart phone, etc. This will be self-guided tour.
  • Cost is estimated at $125 for train, ferry, & food

 

Other considerations:

 

  • All-purpose handlebar bag, water proof, with enough room for extra layers & snacks.
  • Bring: small towel to dry after swim, sunscreen, cash to purchase food, extra batteries for electronic devices, & camera.
  • Lights are good for visibility during the day & for the short ride (1.6km) from ferry terminal back to South Station.
  • Bicycle gear to bring: helmet (required), vest or jacket (it will get cold in the evening), sun glasses, spare tube, helmet mirror, pump or CO₂ cartridges, chamois cream, & allen keys.
  • MBTA parking information is at http://www.mbta.com/riding_the_t/parking
  • Expect pace will be 14–16mph with several delightful stops along the way.
  • Plan to purchase ferry tickets in advance, before they sell out.

Ride Start: 

Municipal Parking Lot-Concord-Keyes Rd

150 Keyes Rd
Concord , MA
Directions: 

Rt. 128/95 to Exit 29, Rt. 2 West. Go 4.6 mi., look for the Rt. 126 sign, and turn right at that intersection onto Walden Street. Bear right at the fork. At 1.2 mi. in Concord Center make a left onto Main St. and a right into the town parking lot. The Visitor Center is at the south end of the parking lot. By commuter rail and bicycle: From the Concord station, head north on Sudbury Road, which merges into Main Street, then take the first left onto Keyes Rd -- about 1 mi. Train schedule is here: https://mbta.com/schedules/CR-Fitchburg/timetable

The same as Monday's ride but moved up day to take advantage of better weather. If some one can volunteer to do this on a bike with 28mm tires, I'd appreciate it. It might be necessary to drop tire pressure by 25% - 35% and to roll the handle bars up to impart to some off road capability but that can be done at the start. If it doesn't work out, the road back to the start is nearby.

Please park in West side of the parking lot, the one NOT near the restrooms.
