This ride takes cyclists to two great beaches in Harwich and Chatham, with great views of Nantucket Sound, Monomoy Island, and Stage Harbor Lighthouse off in the distance. On the way, the ride goes through bustling Harwich Port, a summer vacation area with lots going on, and the start/finish at Brooks Park connects to the Old Colony Rail Trail for more riding options. Brooks Park on Oak Street in Harwich is the beginning of this ride, and it’s also on the Old Colony Rail Trail (OCRT) for the option of making this 13.7-mile jaunt a bit longer by connecting many other rides in this book. There are restrooms at the Harwich Community Center on Oak Street by turning right out of the start at Brooks Park, but this ride turns left and winds through Harwich Center.
