The ferry takes you from Plymouth to historic Provincetown, where the famous Mayflower landed in 1620. Your cycling route begins here and takes you, from time to time, into Cape Cod National Seashore Park. It often runs along the sea coast and sand dunes and is dotted here and there with charming villages. In terms of tourism, Hyannis celebrates the memory of John F. Kennedy, Falmouth offers the Historical Society Museum and its magnificent gardens, and Martha’s Vineyard reveals why it has charmed so many American presidents. Add the fresh seafood and beautiful sunsets, and you have an unforgettable cycling getaway!
