WWW.13.3Any fan of Lost Cowboy will undoubtedly know that one of the things I am looking most forward to on my vacation here in Wellfleet is riding my bike. In fact, this year I brought both of my bikes – my hybrid mountain bike and my around town cruiser.

I will be taking the mountain bike on the various trails around Wellfleet and to and from the beach. The cruiser, complete with my front basket, will be used while touring around town browsing galleries and buying fresh food for dinner.

One of the best bike path around is the Cape Cod Rail Trail, which either begins – or ends – in Wellfleet depending on where you start. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a converted railroad right-of-way that runs more than 20 miles along some scenic terrain from Dennis to Wellfleet – and it is a must-do for anyone on vacation on Cape Cod.

No bike? No problem! There are many bike shops on the Cape where you can rent bikes for the day or the week. My favorite bike shop on the Cape is The Little Capistrano Bike Shop, which has two locations: Wellfleet and Eastham.

About The Little Capistrano Bike Shop: “The Little Capistrano Bike Shop in Eastham is a full service bike shop with all your biking needs: Sales, Repairs & Rentals and is located at the heart of Cape Cod Biking between: The Nauset National Seashore Trail and The Cape Cod Rail Trail.

Two great locations to start biking from!”
