This is a nice easy and scenic loop that rides along Nantucket Sound from the Herring River in West Harwich through Dennis Port to West Dennis, past ocean beaches and marshland for the first half of the ride. It then follows the Bass River, inland through historic Dennis and through rural North Harwich back to West Harwich. This ride starts at the parking lot of the Irish Pub, which is only open in summer for a few nights each week, and has a dirt parking lot where people park to fish or rent kayaks. The parking lot is almost always empty during the day, unless it’s a Saturday in August during the Irish Pub Road Race. On a Friday or Saturday night, there is always live music, sometimes traditional Irish music that can be heard along the river in this neighborhood with an Irish feel.
