Take your time, stop for all the sights, immerse yourself in an atmosphere that seems far removed from the present. Or just pedal hard and enjoy a great exercise loop. Cyclists with mountain bikes should consult the DeLorme atlas and take advantage of dirt roads on the peninsula, especially in the Holbrook Island Sanctuary. Cape Rosier is the sort of coastal area that you almost don’t want to mention. It’s kind of a dreamy place: beautiful and unspoiled, and you just hope it doesn’t fall into the hands of developers. It’s named after James Rosier, who accompanied Captain George Waymouth on a voyage of exploration in 1605, and who wrote, "A True Relation of the Most Prosperous Voyage Made this Year, 1605, by Captain George Waymouth In the Discovery of the North Part of Virginia." There are spots along the ride that look much the same today as they did when James Rosier first saw them in 1605. Even the most prosaic of cyclists may find themselves wondering if this is the coastline Rosier saw when he waxed poetic over the land.
