This just came in from the Cape Cod Chapter. It’s great to see progress being made. Be sure to check it out when you’re down there this summer!Rob Miceli, Chapter Chairperson for MassBike’s Cape and Island Chapter, was at the ribbon cutting on June 14 for the Cape Cod Regional Transit Authority’s new Outer Cape Bike Shuttle. From June 16, 2012 through September 2, 2012, the shuttle will provide service every 1.5 hours Saturday and Sunday (Excluding holidays) from 8 AM to 6:15 PM. The shuttle provides room for 12 bicycles and riders. This means bicycle riders can now bike beyond the Cape Cod Rail Trail to village centers in Wellfleet, Truro and Provincetown as well as trails in the Cape Cod National Seashore then hop on the shuttle for a ride back to the rail trail or Marconi Beach. The shuttle makes 9 stops between Marconi Beach in Wellfleet and Macmillan pier in Provincetown.
Riders can now ride to Wellfleet and board the shuttle to Provincetown to avoid riding on Route 6, or could park in Wellfleet, ride to Provincetown and take the shuttle back. The Cape is a veritable cornucopia of transportation options! Tell your bicycling friends on Cape Cod and bicyclists who plan on visiting the Cape on weekends this summer!
