The bike ride to First Encounter Beach in Eastham is just spectacular as you ride next to the beautiful salt marshes where you can see the Osprey up above and hear all of the morning birds with all their chatter.
If you go past the main parking lot and down the road, you come to 3 different trails over the dunes that will lead you to the beach. One of them is handicap- accessible with its blue rubber mat which make it easier for wheelchairs and strollers. These paths lead to the beach, but far from the main crowd.
Such a beautiful setting…
It is the most wonderful feeling getting on my bike at 6:00 in the morning before most people are even awake and taking that 10-12 mile bike ride. There is no one around, except that occasional other biker so you have the whole place to yourself.
The views are breathtaking and each day is totally different, depending on the weather and the tides. I took this photograph of my bike at Boat Meadow when it was almost high tide.
It doesn’t get much prettier…
Wednesday was a glorious day for a bike ride… anywhere on Cape Cod. It was sunny, breezy and beautiful with temperatures in the mid-sixties. Just perfect for a bike ride.
I got on the Cape Cod Bike Trail and headed out to Coast Guard Beach. I think it’s one of the prettiest rides around here. It was so nice that I continued out to Nauset Light Beach and Nauset Light. You couldn’t ask for a better day and I wondered when the next time I could do this would be with the colder weather coming.
So, this is my “selfie” at Coast Guard Beach with Nauset Marsh and the ocean in the background.
