    most places will be very dry this weekend. things have been great all week in Hyannis/yarmouth and TOT. last week was very different. what a mess. just not worth it. road ride it is.

    Besides Nickerson, are there any good spots for single track in the Brewster, Chatham or Orleans area? I'll be there vacationing for 2 weeks in August.

    Smile

    I'm very hopeful to steal away a few times over the two weeks I'm on the Cape. We're staying at Ocean Edge so Nickerson is easy to get to.

    I will have access to email but not the internet. Can you provide me with your email address? Mine is rbloch@signatureny.com

    What times are your Tues & Sun. group rides?

    Thanks

    Rob

    road or mtb. bike

    I also will be in orleans for two weeks in august. My dilema is what set of wheels to bring with me? I wasn't aware of any trails worth bringing my mtn. bike, all you hear about is the cape paved trail.

    depending on how far you want to drive, Otis Air Force Base is about an hour away in Falmouth. Super fun trails

    I'm going to be hitting up Cape Cod next week (whole week of riding)... camping out in Nickerson.

    Are there any decent trails in Nickerson? If so -- how do I get there? Any trails accessible by the rail trail (not going to have a car...)...

    I'm from Connecticut so I'm used to steep hills with lots of rocks and roots... anything I should expect at the cape?

    Edit: I went to Nickerson last year, and all I found was lots of paved (and road-bike level hardpack) roads...

    nickerson

    If your camping at nickerson a car is not needed there is a paved bike path all through the park that will link you up to almost all the trails.There is a group ride that leaves from fishermans landing on tuesday nights.If you don't want to ride with a group just follow the trails around the ponds in the park its almost impossible to get lost.I won't be around next week I'm also on vacation or I'd be happy to show you the trails.I hope this helps

    bringing the mtn. bike

    Gotta stay true to the cause, besides I recently bought a new rig and I'm still breaking it in. I'll see you all out on the dirt trail(I'll be on a blue ibis soft tail).
