Bikepath etiquette: or how to use the Shining Sea Bikeway so we can all enjoy it
The Shining Sea Bikeway in Falmouth is a wonderful community resource and very popular. However, with this popularity come potential conflicts. This video is intended to clarify and lay out the rules and etiquette which, if all trail users follows them, can make it a great experience for everyone.
Along the Shining Sea Bikeway
Chris and I did an afternoon ride on the Shining Sea Bikeway. The path is a little over 20 miles round trip and offers scenic views of Cape Cod with Martha's Vineyard in the distance. The trail stops in Woods Hole, a wonderful little town to explore ...

Cape Cod Bike Trails
One of the most enjoyable ways to see and experience the beauty of Cape Cod is on two wheels – on a bike! Cape Cod offers over 60 miles of breath-taking scenic trails for riders of all levels. Go places roads just won’t take you. Get an up-close look at nature in its purest form. All while traveling at your own pace with family, friends and fellow bike riders.
Cape Cod Canal Bike Paths
Before you even cross the bridge, there’s the Cape Cod Canal Bikeway offering over 7 miles of trails on BOTH sides of the mighty Cape Cod Canal. It’s a beautiful setting offering awe-inspiring views of the towering Bourne and Sagamore bridges and the endless boat traffic on the canal. Complete your ride in Sagamore and you’ll be steps away from Scusset Beach and the mouth of Cape Cod Bay at Scusset Harbor.
Shining Sea Bikeway
Another great option is Falmouth’s Shining Sea Bikeway. The northern end of this 11 mile bikeway is in North Falmouth. Hug the entire coast past Sippewissett Marsh, through nearby Falmouth Center, past ponds, Vineyard Sound beaches and Little Harbor. The southern end of the bikeway takes you right to the Steamship Authority parking lot in the charming village of Woods Hole.
Cape Cod Rail Trail
The longest ride on the Cape is the Cape Cod Trail Rail. This 22 mile trail follows the former railroad right-of-way through the towns of Dennis, Harwich, Brewster, Orleans, Eastham and Wellfleet. This popular trail passes many local points of interest and several lakes offering many opportunities to get off the trail and visit a beach, picnic or grab an ice cream cone.
Cape Cod Nickerson State Park Bike Path
While in the Brewster area, you might want to head over to Nickerson State Park for a hilly, yet very scenic network of dedicated bike trails. This enjoyable 8 mile ride takes you through beautiful pine and fir tree forests and around ponds, lakes and bogs. It’s a great opportunity to see a unique coastal woodlands ecosystem.
Nauset Marsh Trail
Equally impressive is the Nauset Marsh Trail located in the National Seashore. This 3 mile round trip begins at Salt Pond Visitor Center in Eastham. Along the way you’ll enjoy large cedar, pine and oak forests and see panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean on your way to Coast Guard Beach.
Province Lands Trail
And last, but not least is the 7-1/4 mile Province Lands Trail. This hilly paved loop starts at the Province Lands visitor center in Provincetown and traverses much of the Province Lands’ 4,000 acres. Enjoy breathtaking marshland, endless dunes and water views along the way. A 2 mile trail extension will take you to Herring Beach, Race Point Beach and Bennet Pond.
So, the next time you set out to explore Cape Cod…consider doing it on two wheels. You might just find it to be “a most enjoyable” way to travel.

Falmouth /ˈfælmɨθ/ is a town in Barnstable County, Massachusetts, United States; Barnstable County is coextensive with Cape Cod. The population was 31,532 at the 2010 census, making Falmouth the second-largest municipality on Cape Cod (behind only Barnstable). The terminal for the Steamship Authority ferries to Martha's Vineyard is located in the village of Woods Hole in Falmouth. Woods Hole also contains several scientific organizations such as the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution, the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL), the Woods Hole Research Center, National Marine Fisheries Aquarium, and the scientific institutions' various museums.
For geographic and demographic information on specific parts of the town of Falmouth, please see the articles on East Falmouth, Falmouth Village, North Falmouth, Teaticket, West Falmouth, and Woods Hole. Falmouth also encompasses the villages of Hatchville and Waquoit, which are not census-designated places and fall within the village of East Falmouth based on postal serviHistory
Falmouth was first settled by English colonists in 1660 and was officially incorporated in 1686. Bartholomew Gosnold named the settlement for Falmouth, Cornwall, England, his home port. Early principal activities were farming, salt works, shipping, whaling, and sheep husbandry, which was very popular due to the introduction of Merino sheep and the beginnings of water-powered mills that could process the wool. In 1837, Falmouth averaged about 50 sheep per square mile.
Falmouth saw brief action in the War of 1812, when the area around Falmouth Heights, on its southern coast, was bombarded by several British frigates and ships of the line, and Massachusetts militia hastily entrenched themselves on the beaches to repulse a possible British landing which never came. By 1872, the train had come to Falmouth and Woods Hole, and some of the first summer homes were established. By the late 19th century, cranberries were being cultivated and strawberries were being raised for the Boston market. Large-scale dairying was tried in the early 20th century in interior regions. After the improvement in highways, and thanks in part to the heavy use of neighboring Otis Air National Guard Base during World War II, population growth increased significantly. Large homebuilding booms occurred in the 1970s, followed by others in the 1980s and 1990s.
In the late 1800s, after railroad service was established between Boston and Cape Cod, James Madison Beebe bought over 700 acres (280 ha) and built Highfield Hall, which is now a museum, and much of the land is preserved as Beebe Woods.
In 1965, Robert Manry sailed from Falmouth aboard his 13.5-foot (4.1 m) sailboat and reached Falmouth, England, 78 days later.

Mountain Biking West Barnstable Trails Cape Cod MA
West Barnstable Mountain Bike Trails in Cape Cod were totally fun. We took a trip up to Cape Cod in Massachusetts to get some beach time with the great whites. The swimming actually turned out to be pretty good. Calm clear waters that weren’t totally freezing. And for the first time ever – we discovered some great mountain bike trails. MTB in Cape Cod? Yep. And it was fun as shit too. We were focused on West Barnstable and the Trail of Tears. There’s a North and South side to that trail. Both are seriously good. If you like short tough ups with rocks and roots and extended technical downs – this place is for you. We rode it in the clockwise direction from the shooting range lot. There are also a bunch of miles of greens and blues out there to ride as well. Those are a little wider and pine needle covered with elevation up and down, but not as punchy and fast as the blacks. Bring your fat bikes and check them out next time you’re beachin’ in cape cod. As always thanks for watching and subscribe if you haven’t already.
Where will you find the best bike paths in Mass?
Not in Worcester. Over the past year or so I've seen more and more bikes painted on the road. As an experienced motorest, pedestrian, and cyclest I can say with authority that pianting a bike in the middle of the road does not a bike path make.
Greetings from Falmouth, Massachusetts! It's COLD!

A Cape Cod Province Lands Bike Ride
Take a bike ride with me on the Province Lands trail starting from the Cape Cod National Seashore visitor center riding to Herring Cove Beach and then to Race Point Beach. The trail is a 5.45 mile loop through forest and dunes with many hills. The path spur to Herring Cove is 1.1 mile and Race Point is 0.5 off the main path and well worth the journeys.
Three Bicycle Trails ~ Cape Cod Massachusetts
We had a blast riding our Mountain Bikes on our vacation down at Cape Cod.
We explored three different Bike Trails.
September 20, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Old Colony Rail Trail and the CCRT - Cape Cod Rail Trail starting in Harwich down to Nickerson State Park in Brewster. It poured on us. We do not have rain gear for our bikes. We made the best of it. The trails were paved in a wooded area. We saw Cranberry bogs and ponds..it was a great ride. Nickerson State Park had some huge hills to ride up and down. It was difficult for me,, I had to walk my bike up a few hills. This was a 21 mile bike ride,, the longest one I have done since getting my Mountain Bike Mid June 2016.
September 22, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Province Lands Bicycle Trail. We parked at the Provincetown Visitor Center. I absolutely loved this Bike Trail. You ride on a paved trail through the Sand Dunes.. WOW what a fun and beautiful bike ride. We rode out to Herring Cove, Race Point and Bennett Pond. It is marked as a Challenging Bike Path,, and it was. We rode 12 miles.
September 23, 2016 we rode our bikes on the Head of the Meadows Bicycle Trail. The trails are paved but very bumpy. It was a pretty ride but short.. only 2 miles out and 2 miles back.
We had a great time biking on Cape Cod.

ROCKS ON THE CAPE?! | Otis Trails | Falmouth, MA April 2018
Fresh off my trip to Arizona I spent a Sunday at the Otis trail network in Falmouth, MA. Most riders only hit these trails in the winter because of the lack of snow and the quick draining soil that The Cape is known for. I ran out of battery part way through but had enough juice to get the end of the ride in.

Quaker Homes in Falmouth, Massachusetts - Bob Vila eps.2904
Creating Affordable Housing:
How To: Find Affordable Housing
Bob visits with John Druley of Quaker Homes in Falmouth, Massachusetts. Druley is developing a parcel of land in Falmouth that will have eight homes, two of them affordable for families earing a modest income. Bob and Druley discuss the reality of housing in Falmouth, where one-acre building lots are required for new housing. A lot, Druley explains, will sell for around $300,000 with no construction. For this development, Druley has invoked Massachusetts' Act 40B to gain relief from zoning restrictions such as the one-acre minimum lot size. In return, Druley must make 20 percent of the homes available as affordable homes, for those earning up to 80 percent of the area's median income. The lots are 10,000 sqaure feet with a 40-foot setback from the road, 10-foot sidelines, and a 45 to 50-foot backyard. The homes are 1,800-square-foot Capes with attached garages, clad in white cedar shingles, with skylights, architectural-style roof shingles, and no-maintenance, energy-efficient vinyl windows. Druley explains that the affordable and market-priced homes must be indistinguisable in design, materials, and layout. The state assigns a 40B auditor to monitor the project and assure that no corners are cut on the affordable homes, and that the developer earns no more than 20 percent profit from the development. Druley explains that the market-priced homes in the neighborhood will sell for between $375,000 and $400,000, which will help offset the $119,900 selling price for the affordable homes.
