    Cape Cod ... tell me where to go

    I posted this in the Massachusetts forum also.
    Fat biking Great Island, Wellfleet ... where else should I go?


    I'm in Eastham w/ my Pugsley.

    I'll be riding @ Great Island, Wellfleet tomorrow around 1PM (low tide)

    I'll have time for one more ride this week.

    Where else should I go?

    thanks!

    I'm an out-of-towner, but have family in Falmouth. I found the Trail of Tears network in West Barnstable on the Cape Cod Bike Guide. Liked it a lot, and it seems like it would be fun on a fatty (pretty sandy in places).

    Was there last year.

    I have no idea where you are, related to Chatham, but Lighthouse Beach went on for miles and miles.

    The only issue was finding parking.

    I recommend a early AM assault, the public parking lots don't start towing after 20 minutes park time till (I think) 9AM....

    Had the place to myself, it was pretty awesome, just me, and the harbor seals.

    Thanks. I'll check it out.

    Great Island, Wellfleet is a perfect mix of tidal flats, beach and some forested trails.

    There was a tavern there in 1690. 1690!

    I ended doing more swimming in the bay than riding. Damn fine water.

    It's nice to be on the beach and not see any humans for miles.

    It's nice here in the fall you can ride almost any beach.
    The Gauntlet is a nice place to ride down there.
