    New question here. Trail rides on Nantucket

    I will be spending a few days on Nantucket and was looking for some trail suggestions. I heard the Vineyard has some great xc rides, but nothing on Nantucket. Suggestions anyone?
    It's all cycle-logical to me.

    When are you heading over? I'd be happy to show you around, I will say it's not a great time of year to ride the trails they get very grown in every summer but I'm still riding.

    Where are the trails on the island located? My inlaws have a place off Pocomo Road. I would be psyched to find anything rideable over there beyond the bike paths especially now that my boys have shown an interest in riding.

    Dredging up this old thread in hopes of some ride suggestions on Nantucket. Have been there in the past and explored but did not find much. I'm not trying to reveal anyone's private stash so even a PM with trailhead suggestions would be great. Not afraid to get lost again.

    Radair, only spent a weekend on Nantucket, rode my old SS Schwinn with CX tires. I hit the Middle Moors, which was lots of "gravel" (sand) roads, bonus is ticking off Nantucket high point. Then I believe I hit Sanford Farm.

    Not sure you're history with beach vacation spots, but I would highly suggest MV over Nantucket. I prefer it for a multitude of reasons. As someone who loves to explore by bike MV offers a ton more land and more and better "trails".

    Again I ride my CX rig but plenty of folks have MTBs. I've done long adventure rides from one end to the other, lots of good gravel roads, abandoned roads, and trails. Up island has the moraine which means elevation and even some rocks!

    PM me and I can give more info if you'd like. Even show you how to park at the new Steamship lot and spin 15 miles of trail to the Woods Hole terminal, get on, get off in Vineyard Haven and ride miles of the above adventure to anywhere on island!

    Thanks Steve! We went last weekend and found a little bit of singletrack in the middle moors by studying Google earth. Had a great time anyway. We've been to the Vineyard a few times (I get occasional work trips to each) and found better stuff there. Really love both the islands and will hit you up for the Beta on the WH trails!

    Thanks again!

    Glad you had fun! I loved living on cape and the GF's family is on the vineyard, so I am lucky.

    Still jonesing to get up your way, really only played in central NH and Bear Brook, I've heard of the legendary trails in the mountains though!
