You can venture north on Ocean Drive, which will give you a scenic ride. Very flat of course. With your scenic ride comes a slew of tourists driving, practice caution. Thru Ocean city to it's very Nothern Point is the Gardens bridge, cross it and it can take you West back thru Somers Point, across the Beesley's Point bridge (closed to car traffic now but nice to ride across) and into Cape May County.
Or from the Gardens bridge you can cross into DOwnbeach/Absecon Island (Longport, Margate, Ventnor and AC). Absecon Island loop is 13 miles. If you ride before 10 am you can ride the boardwalks in Ventnor and AC. I'd avoid most riding on Ocean Drive or Absecon Island on the weekends in summer.
I do most of my riding during the week.
Your other option is to leave the island, cross the GSP and route 9 and into Cape May COunty.
You'll find quieter back roads. This link is good: http://www.njbikemap.com/njmap/start...your_rides.htm
