A tour through the villages of Bourne, from the Cape Cod Canal and Bourne Village through Mashnee Neck, Monument Beach, Wing’s Neck, Pocasset, and Cataumet. Ride the coast for the first half of the ride, with spectacular views of the ocean and bays, then return inland through countryside along rolling hills back to the start under the Bourne Bridge. This is a challenging road ride for more seasoned road cyclists at a distance of almost 30 miles, but it can easily be cut shorter or made longer depending on your level of energy. This ride overlaps Ride 1, Cape Cod Canal, and Ride 5, Tour of Falmouth. It has several challenging short climbs and rolling hills for several long stretches, especially in the middle of the ride and at the end of the ride along County Road in Bourne. On some main roads but mostly back roads, it starts at the parking lot under the Bourne Bridge by the Cape Cod Canal and takes a little side trip to the Aptucxet Trading Post and Museum.
