Cape Cod Rail Trail - S. Dennis, Mass

We'll probably do 35 miles of biking at a 12-14 mph rate

This is currently a day trip only.

Meet at the beginning of the trail in South Dennis/ Rte 134

I'm told the paved trail is relatively flat as it used to be a railroad line.
I haven't ridden it in several years so I kinda forget :-)

I anticipate that it would take us about 3 1/2 hours with some rest stops.

Bring plenty of water, a bike in good working condition, energy snacks and your sense of humor!

Don't forget a new tube for your bike in case you get a flat!

my cell on the day of the ride is (617)[masked]


Take exit 9a
South on 134
You'll see a shopping plaza
The path is just after the Mobil gas station.

    That was a great ride. Nice meeting you all in "the second group" (we averaged 14.5mph), and I look forward to meeting the "the first group" on a future ride".

    I had not been on that section of trail from Dennis to Orleans before. Interesting how many cafes and bike repair shops have popped up along the way to cater to the Rail Trail riders. For future reference, the parking lot at the trail head was full by 10:30. There was parking in the lots of neighboring businesses, who hopefully didn't mind losing a few spaces to riders.

    The day was gorgeous and everyone was so nice.This trail was a good length, smooth and pretty wide. It was still early in the season and the dodge 'em effect of being on a trail that is heavily used was not too bad yet.Cheers for doing the whole length!

    I am looking for one more person to ride to the cape tomorrow. I have one spot for a bike in my car. Alternatively I can ride with anyone who's got a spot for my bike in their car. Please let me know. Cheers
