Built on an old railway bed, the 22-mile Cape Cod Rail Trail is perfect for a daylong biking adventure: it has paved trails through the flat terrain, as well as cyclist-friendly cafés along the way. The trail starts at Route 134 in Dennis and winds through Chatham, continuing north to Wellfleet. You'll find gorgeous beaches just off the path for a picnic.
