Biking Itinerary

Biking Itinerary

The itinerary is easier than you’d expect: Over four days, we biked from P’town to Chatham on routes that combined roads and bike trails, sending our luggage ahead in a taxi. Our days felt unhurried as we savored the rejuvenating seaside breezes, coastal scenery bathed in a warm, fall glow, and copious amounts of delicious seafood. (Turns out you work up quite an appetite while biking, even if you’re not Lance Armstrong.) Whether it was the biking, spending quality time with friends, or traveling back to a place wrapped in happy memories, I came home refreshed and energized. If your spirit could use a little recharging, check out my trail notes, call your friends, and head to the Cape.
