This tour has everything! On the Cape we follow beach roads and a beautiful bike path as we weave our way past salt marshes, cranberry bogs, wooded bird sanctuaries, barrier beaches and tidal flats filled with egrets, geese and ducks.
A scenic ferry ride takes us to Martha’s Vineyard and elegant Edgartown, a colonial seaport whose rows of handsome 18th-century houses are reminders of the great wealth of the early whaler captains. Our gorgeous cycling takes us to Katama with its beautiful three mile barrier beach, and to historic West Tisbury. We visit Vineyard Haven, ride past historic West Chop Light and ride “up island” to the spectacular lookout at Aquinnah Cliffs (formerly Gay Head). We enjoy a picnic in the picturesque fishing village of Menemsha where we bike down to the harbor and stroll along beautiful Menemsha Beach. Our last day we can opt for an early morning ferry ride to Chappaquiddick before cycling along a beautiful bike path to Oak Bluffs. Here we explore famous labyrinthine streets lined with fanciful rainbow-colored gingerbread cottages and visit the town’s antique Flying Horses Carousel before returning to the inn.
