An unmarked, coastal bikepacking route along Nantucket Sound in the town of Barnstable. A small section along the Hyannis Waterfront is family friendly and easily navigable by even the most novice riders. Riders wishing to continue west to Mashpee must navigate a few busier sections of roadway, but the scenic views of Nantucket Sound makes the ride stunning and well worth it. Riders have access to several beaches, including Veterans Beach, Kalmus Beach, and Craigville Beach. This 24.8 mile journey is perfect for bikepackers who want coastal, open water views.
