So you all know how much I love bike riding, in fact, it is one of the ways I know that summer is just around the corner when I can take my bike out for the first ride of the season. Well, it should be no surprise to you that biking the Cape Cod Rail Trail has been on my to do list for quite some time now. This weekend, my husband, Pete, and I got the opportunity to do just that!
The CCRT is a beautiful flat, paved pathway that starts in Dennis, Ma and runs to Wellflleet.
The entire trail is 22 miles long. We went about half way going ten miles down and then biking the same ten miles back to our car.
The trail was absolutely awesome! I highly recommend it. And even better, if you bring along some cash in your pocket, there are plenty of places to stop for ice cream along the way. I mean, hey, you did the work, you should get a treat!
Although we didn’t stop much, you could bike part of the way, hit the beach and then come back to finish your ride!
The trail was not that crowded and we were able to get our speeds up pretty high. I’m sure on a sunnier day, more people would be out making it a bit more crowded. But overall, I have to say its not to be missed!
