      Most people don’t realize that Cape Cod offers many hundreds of miles of excellent off pavement mountain bike trails. Hardly a town on the Cape doesn't have a local bike trail system worth exploring.

      These bike trails which are enjoyed by hikers, dog walkers, runners and in season snowshoes and x-country skis are also enjoyed from the saddle of a mountain bike.

      There is a rumor that the Cape’s mountain bike trails lack hills. Sure we don’t have mountains, but you’ll not lack climbing and descending on our trails. What we don’t have are the endless series of rocky, rooty trails that are common in most of the rest of the Northeast. What you will find are smooth, windy singletracks that are fun to ride for all levels of riding ability.

      Looking for trail conditions and locals to ride with? Check out the Cape Cod NEMBA Facebook page.

      Explore the Cape’s trails – You won’t be disappointed.
