Day Two: Provincetown to Wellfleet

Pack a picnic lunch, and then bid a fond farewell to Provincetown. Send your luggage to Wellfleet in a cab; you’ll be hitting the road for your first long ride. As P’town fades into the distance, Shore Road opens up with sweeping views of the bay dotted with classic New England shingled cottages and vintage motor courts. (Note: Enjoy the flat terrain while it lasts—the hill quotient picks up a bit between Truro and Wellfleet.) Before heading for the hills, stop at Truro Vineyards of Cape Cod for some light wine tasting and the picnic lunch you packed that morning. After Truro, the road merges with Route 6 for a short time, but the shoulders are wide enough for a pack of bicycles, plus there’s a great ice cream store, Savory and Sweet Escapes, to take the edge off the traffic.
