I'm thinking about taking my Boy Scout troop to Cape Cod to do some cycling sometime this year to finish up our 50-miler award. If I'm not mistaken, the longest trail is 26 miles one-way. We would go down and back to complete 50 miles. I'm also planning to make it a weekend, so we would be camping somewhere around the area.
For anyone who has any knowledge of the trail and/or the area, I have a few questions:
I'm sure some boys and adults would want to bring their own bikes (like myself), but I know there would be some who would need a bike for the day. We would need bikes for kids ages 12-17 and bikes for adults as well. I know you can rent bikes there, but how are they and what are the rates?
Do they offer group discounts?
How is the trail itself?
We would need a place to camp Friday and Saturday night. We would be camping out of tents and cooking food over a fire or over portable gas grills. Are there any areas specifically Boy Scout friendly?
I haven't came up with a set date yet, but I'm thinking somewhere between May to Sept. When would be the best time to go?
Any other thoughts or info that might be helpful?
