This is a very nice loop. The best travel time is after Labor Day or early Spring. much less cape traffic. Middleboro center to Plymouth St Right on Rt 58. Left on Lakeview St. Right on Cranberry Rd. toward Myles Standish state Forest. Right on Federal road. This road is windy with truck traffic during the week. In the fall large Cranberry trucks will be on this road even on week ends. Left on Rt 28 follow to Rt 28 & 6 to scenic 6 and go over the Bourne bridge. There is a rotary on the other side - rotarys are dangerous. Take the first right on Trowbridge Rd which will turn into Shore Rd to County Rd. Go right on 28A for a short streach. Right on Old Main St to right on Wild Harbor Rd to left on Quaker Rd. and go through Old Silver Beach which will turn into Nashanena Rd. At the stop sign go right on old dock Rd which brings you to Chapoquoit Rd go right its a dead end but worth the view. a private security guard will turn you around.

Follow it back to Rt 28 A go right and look for bikecycle trail sign on right. Right on Palmer Ave. Right on Sippewissett Rd this will turn into Quissett Ave. It will dump you out on Water St downtown Woods Hole. Take a right and Capt Kidds on right great food. Leaving Woods Hole pass the Coast Guard ships on right and take the next right on Church St and go around the light house and follow the coast to Surf Dr. Martha's Vinyard is the back drop in the next pic.

This will bring you to Shore Dr in Falmouth. To Rt 28 downtown go right and follow signs to Falmouth Heights Rd. Follow the heights to Menauhant Rd to Central Ave to a right back on Rt 28. Rt 28 is the worst part of the ride, lights, traffic, etc. Follow 28 past Hyannis airport into Yarmouth and look for the House of Leather on left. Neat store to browse. Go back up Rt 28 towards the airport and take a right on Yarmouth Rd which will turn to Willow St and dump you on 6-A go left. This is a blind intersection. Follow 6A to the Sagamore Bridge connection. Over the bridge take the first exit to State Rd which will turn to 3AFollow 3A until the begining of Plymouth and look for Berts on right a great spot to stop or go into Plymoth center and people watch.

Go left on Summer St to Federal Furnace Rd go right on S Meadow Rd to Rt 58 Go right to Plymouth St on your left to Rt 105 a right to Middleboro center. This ride takes about 5-6 hours. Summer traffic will add time.
