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.
You must purchase return ferry ticket in advance of staring the ride. Capacity is low. Ferry will sell out.
Start at 7:40 AM 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 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.
