"A flat, often windy, scenic, and smooth paved path that hugs the curves of the Cape Cod Canal, gateway to the Cape Cod peninsula. A favorite spot for fishermen where you can watch ships from around the world pass through, and see travelers overhead on the Sagamore and Bourne Bridges."
--Dr. Gregory Wright, Best Bike Rides Cape Cod and the Islands (Falcon Guides).
"A 63-mile scenic route along the historic south shore of Cape Cod Bay and up the Outer Beach along the Atlantic Ocean in Cape Cod National Seashore to Provincetown at the Cape’s northern tip."
