There are some great rides beyond Provincetown! If you’re comfortable riding on Route 6 (which is an advanced skill), you can reach both the Head of the Meadow bike trail and the Cape Cod Rail Trail to explore more of the Cape and National Seashore.

You can also get there by bringing your bike on the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority’s Flex Bus, which departs from MacMillan Pier in the center of town. All of the busses can fit two bikes in the rack on front for no additional charge. The seasonal Provincetown/North Truro Shuttle (aka “The Shuttle”) can also take you and your bike to Herring Cove, Race Point Beach, or Beech Forest.

Here are my recommended routes if you’d like to ride your bike:

Head of the Meadow Beach Excursion

Intermediate. Ride to the spectacular Head of the Meadow Beach for a day in the sun, and continue along the Head of the Meadow Trail extension to the lighthouse at High Head. Intermediate. 1 hour each way. You can be out all day!

Ride to the Cape Cod Rail Trail

Advanced. If you enjoy road riding, it’s 23 miles from Provincetown to the start of the rail trail in Wellfleet. The Cape Cod Rail Trail is a 22-mile, paved two-way path from southern Wellfleet to South Dennis. The newly-constructed southern extension of the trail can take you to Bourne and beyond to the Shining Sea Bikeway all the way to Woods Hole in Falmouth.
