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

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

Start at 4:30 AM from Seaport World Trade Center 2 Seaport Ln, Boston, MA 02210 Navigate out of town with stops at Scituate, Whitehorse beaches, Plymouth Rock and some photo opts. Then across the bridge onto Cape Cod to connect with the CRW group in Hyannis by 10:30 am then out to 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 163 miles & elevation gain of 5500ft, you could arrive Provincetown just in time for the ferry at 8:30PM ($73). This is also a tour, not a race. We will likely take our time to arrive into town, dine & stroll around before sailing on 20:30 ferry, arriving Boston at 22:00.
