This is the long road ride on the Outer Cape that road cyclists want, with a rich history, a tour of both Cape Cod Bay and the “backside” of Cape Cod, facing the Atlantic Ocean. This is an unforgettable ride that can be extended easily to Provincetown if you’ve got the legs. This ride combines two classic Cape road cycling routes connecting Wellfleet and Truro in a double-lollipop shape, riding along Cape Cod Bay through Orleans and Eastham, then crossing over to the east coast of Wellfleet and Truro headed north, and returning along Cape Cod Bay riding south. At nearly 55 miles, this ride will challenge most riders, and the many climbs on this ride through Wellfleet and Truro will eliminate the thought of Cape Cod as a flat place.
