The paved and marked bicycle trails at the Cape Cod National Seashore run through the dunes and past the beaches at the tip of Cape Cod. The trails feature the most beautiful views of the beaches, dunes and ocean on the Lower Cape. Gale Force Bikes is located closest to the Province Lands bicycle trails. Dedicated bicycle lanes start in front of our store and provide a safe route to and from the bicycle trails at Herring Cove Beach. See the route marked in red on the map below.
It takes about 2 hours to complete the 8 mile loop from our shop, past Herring Cove Beach, through Beech Forest, past the Province Lands Visitor Center, on to Race Point Beach and back. You can pedal right through the loop for a good workout, or pack a picnic lunch and take a more leisurely pace. We strongly suggest all riders wear a helmet which are provided free of charge with all rentals. Get supplies for your ride right here at our Beach Market Sandwich Shop and Deli where we offer fresh sandwiches, snacks and beverages.
NOTE: We strongly recommend staying off of the multi-lane divided section of Route 6 indicated by the wide black line on the map because cars drive fast due to the 50 MPH speed limit and there are no bicycle lanes and no safe shoulder for riding.
