We rented bikes in the Falmouth Village. This bike ride is 4 miles to beautiful Woods Hole and is beautiful and scenic. The ride is flat and easy! A fun activity to do! Have lunch on the water in Woods Hole!

The trail runs from Falmouth to Woods Hole. We started in Falmouth and had a lunch break in Woods Hole and returned. The trail is 11 miles and lovely. If you google, you should find maps and further information.
