Do cycle tourers use this ferry alot for trips down and up the east coast? Just wondering because it looks like a better option than riding closer to Philly or so. I know adv. cycling has a route from Maine to Florida but I haven't seen the details.
Just saying because my sister and I usually go to my father's house in Lewes by driving to Cape May (we're about 2.5 hours by car from Cape May) and then parking for free in Cape May and taking our bikes on the ferry. A lot cheaper than by car and no reservations needed in the peak times. My father's house is only 9 miles from the terminal in Delaware and it's an easy 1/2 hour ride. We did that again this past weekend for my parent's anniversary and had a great time, saw dolphins on the ferry.
BTW, has anybody ridden to Ocean City Maryland from the ferry terminal. My father says OC is about 30 minutes by car which I gather it would be about 30-40 miles by bike or so.... Thinking about a day trip from my father's house
