Cape Cod Canal Bikeway

cape_cod_bikeway

The Cape Cod Canal Bikeway is two separate paved paths that connect Buzzards Bay with Scusset Beach on the mainland side, and the communities of Sandwich and Bourne on the Cape Cod side. Pedestrians may cross the Canal on the 2384′ Bourne Bridge sidewalk, but to do so on a bicycle would be very dangerous due to high winds and no protective guard rail separating the sidewalk from the road.
