This is the description of the Narragansett Bay Wheelmen who arrowed this ride a couple of weeks ago. 
Explore the Cape on quiet back roads.Follow the Buzzard's Bay shore to Woods Hole, then on to Falmouth, heading back past ponds and pine woods, finishing with a run along the Cape Cod Canal. We schedule this ride to avoid heavy summer Cape traffic but still get some great fall riding weather. The long ride crosses railroad tracks several times - take care on the acute-angled crossings.

It's a 20 minute drive to the Bourne Bridge crossing the Cape Cod canal. The high school that is the starting point is just over the Bridge.  The arrows were still in good shape which made the route very easy to follow.  There was an option of riding 25, 41 or 62 miles.  I chose the 25 and that was enough for the windy fall afternoon.  One of the longer options is for another day.

Decision time and the number are wrong BTW


  1. The mileage is off John. The ride has been updated using the bike path, but the map has not been updated.

  2. It is a really nice ride. I got a few tsks tsks because I don't wear a helmet, but I'm accustomed to the helmet nannys.

  3. Great pic's on Flickr. I keep forgetting to follow one of those Wheelman routes - sometime...
