    Trails and Such in Ocean City, Maryland?

    Hi everybody, sorry if this is OT but I wasn't sure what thread was apropos. Can anybody give me some advice for biking in Ocean City, Maryland? As in trails, where to park to get the longest ride on the beach, weird local regs and so forth? Taking a cheap vacation from work and I'm trying to get in as much biking as possible. Any advice is helpful, thanks!

    Biking on the boardwalk is fun, but you can only do it during limited times during peak season, but I think those time limits are more relaxed this time of year. I have also done biking in Assateague. You can do it either in the state or federal part. http://www.nps.gov/asis/ http://www.dnr.state.md.us/publiclan...ssateague.html
    google it. You will get tons of hits for the parks. Other than that, I usually just ride the bike/bus lanes.

    Ditto to both of the previous replies.

    Actually Coastal Highway has a bike lane and extends from Maryland thru Delaware where it becomes Route 1. If you were able to stay on Route 1, you could go all the way to Dover, but I'm not sure if it's permitted past Lewes.

    I've cycled from OC to Rehobeth and back--about 53 miles round trip.

    OC is very bike friendly, the boardwalk access is limited depending on time of year, but the coastal hwy has nice wide bike lanes and sees lots of bike traffic, so a very nice ride. Also very flat, so it seems like you can ride forever.

    I was kitesurfing at Assateaque Is. federal park yesterday (Oct4th) and at dead low tide you could have easily ridden a cruiser or MTB all the way to Virginia because the sand is very well packed and the slope of the beach is quite flat at low tide. There are some quiet road rides South of O.C.
