boston to provincetown...anyone got a good route?

anyone got a link to a cue sheet with a good sized map that follows the route? I'm doing the MS ride down to Provincetown..but im going the 175 over two days. i'm looking for something i could try doing in one day (so quickest, shortest route possible)

Not in Eastham, there aren't any shoulders. But Route 6A is and is very scenic. Route 6 north of Wellfleet is better but I'd still stick to the back roads as much as possible

The cape portion of this route looks pretty good.

For the off-cape portion, I would suggest you use the cue sheets for the 75 mile MS route, it might be a tad longer but it's a lot nicer than riding with all the traffic on routes 18 and 58
