This past weekend, 10 (8 adults & 2 kids) of us did a 3 day bike tour on Cape Cod and Nantucket. It was quite a trip.
Some configuration of all of us had bike toured together in the past, but not all of us at once! And, not with the 2 kids, one aged 7 years and one aged 23 months. But the kids did awesome - the 7 yr old was a trooper, laughing when she got splashed by puddles & encouraging her Mom up hills. And the 23 mo old was happy 90% of the time to watch the sights go by, or sleeping, as he was pulled in his trailer.
The first day was 50 miles. We started in Sandwich and rode the Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

Made our way down the back roads to the Shining Sea Bike Path, and then cut across to Hyannis to catch the ferry to Nantucket, where we stayed at this fantastic house! It belongs to family friends of Beth, the co-organizer of this trip. It was built in 1824 and has been passed down through the generations.

We split into groups on Saturday, with some of us going to Pomoco Beach via the wonderful bike paths that run across Nantucket, others sightseeing in town.

And headed back to the ferry.

Because the wind was gusting up to 30 mph and it was raining on & off we decided to do the short 20 mile route back to Sandwich, so nothing much to photograph until we got to the very end where there is a great, long boardwalk that you can take to the dunes. We were all pretty tuckered out by then, so we just headed back to the cars.062 - Copy (960x1280).jpg
We ended up with 97 miles total.
