The Shining Sea Bike Path is one of the most picturesque trails in New England … an easy, relatively flat 10.7 miles from North Falmouth to the heart of bustling Woods Hole village. Since we’re there, why not enjoy lunch at the Landfall Restaurant – the Club will even pay for lunch if you make the ride with us. Afterwards, work off the meal with the ride back to your car.
All ages and abilities are welcome. We’ll meet at the head of the bike path, behind Dean’s Market in North Falmouth at 10:30.
