Day Two Details

ROUTE: About 15 miles. Take Bradford Street out of Provincetown. This turns into Route 6A, then into Shore Road, then back to 6A before merging with Route 6 for a short period. Take a right on Castle Road, and then turn right on Depot Road. Follow Old Country Road, then turn right on Coles Neck Road. Take a left on Pole Dike Road, then left onto Main Street, which leads to the Wellfleet town center.
RENT: Little Capistrano Bike Shop is open Saturdays and Sundays after Labor Day, weather permitting.
REST: You’ll know you’ve arrived at The Holden Inn in Wellfleet when you see the anchors hanging out front. Bonus: The town center and harbor are both within walking distance.
REFUEL: Snag a “rollwich” to go from Box Lunch on your way out of Provincetown; stop for pizza and ice cream—try the pumpkin-gingersnap!—at Savory and Sweet Escapes in Truro; and dive into Mac’s Shack in Wellfleet for fresh lobster, clams, scallops, fish-and-chips, and more of the town’s famous oysters.
