An easy, flat ride through historic Barnstable and Yarmouth Port that rides sections of the “Old King’s Highway” (Route 6A) and visits Barnstable Harbor. Start at bustling Barnstable Village, hug the coast of Cape Cod Bay, and end at the home of author and illustrator Edward Gorey (now a museum). Something for everyone in the family, including whale watching. Start at the Barnstable Superior Courthouse parking lot for this flat, scenic, and historic ride through Barnstable Village, Cummaquid (a sub-village of Barnstable), and Yarmouth Port. Barnstable Village was once a hotbed of Revolutionary War activity, so take note of two statues of patriots James Otis Jr. and his sister Mercy Otis Warren in front of the four-pillar ed Superior Courthouse overlooking Main Street.
