Nice scenic ride you’ll be glad you did! Typical ride on Cape Cod, a gentle ride. Start in Woods Hole with restaurants and coffee shops, the most scenic part is right there. Close to the ferry.

We rented bikes in Falmouth and biked to Woods Hole. A very enjoyable mother's day. The bikeway is beautiful, and it takes you through some wooded areas and beaches. Lots of birds around also.

Can’t beat this bike trail for a terrific bike outing. Basically flat with lots of beautiful views of the water, marshes, bogs, wooded areas and farmland. Several areas along the way to hop off for snacks or a break. If you start in North Falmouth...More

This trail is perfect for the whole family. It is approximately eleven miles one way, but can be done in sections if you prefer. There are lots of places to stop off for a sandwich, ice cream or a cool drink. It is fairly flat...More

Our very favorite bike path on Cape Cod. It is just over 10 miles long from the Rte 151 Ferry parking area to Woods Hole. Part of the trail goes along the shoreline.

It's easy to find, always cleaned up after winter before other bike paths are. I biked and rollerbladed there. Pavement is perfect even for rollerblading except in a couple spots. In summer it gets too crowded with little kids and families, but it has such...More

The Shining Sea bike path is 10+ miles long flat and easy riding (so 20 out and back). We rode north from the Falmouth coast and the views of the salt marshes and Buzzard Bay coast are great. There are many side routes and low...More

If you like Italian food you must go to Slice of Italy in Falmouth. Or for a diner go to Betsy's which is quite good. Both are on Route 28 in Falmouth.

We rented two bikes from Bike Zone in N. Falmouth which is right at the beginning of the trail and I believe we paid around $21 each to have the bikes for the entire day. They did a great job of adjusting the bikes for us.
