Guide to Cape Cod on Two Wheels

Plan Your Trip: Early fall is a great time to see Cape Cod because the quaint shops and cafés are still open, but summer crowds have gone home. Depending on how late you go, some of the leaves will have turned—but it’ll still be warm enough for barefoot walks on the beach.

Getting There: Fly to Boston and take the ferry to Provincetown. Once you finish at Chatham, taxi back to P’town to return via ferry.

Taxi Company: Cape Cab Taxi operates in Provincetown, Wellfleet, Orleans, and Chatham and will shuttle your luggage and bikes.

Bike Rentals: Ptown Bikes in Provincetown; Chatham Cycle in Chatham. Try a hybrid—sturdier than a road bike but lighter than a mountain bike—with a cushy seat, and make reservations early; September is a popular month to bike on the Cape.
