Cycling in Provincetown

Cycling in Provincetown


Provincetown is at the very end of Cape Cod in Massachusetts, surrounded by Provincetown Harbor, Cape Cod Bay and the Atlantic Ocean. It’s a small town of about 3,000 people and known for its stunning natural beauty, thriving arts scene, and as a major gay summer vacation destination.

This is one of the most wonderful places to ride a bike. The town itself is small and compact, and the majority of the roads have speed limits under 25 mph. There is bike parking everywhere – at the grocery store, dentist, health center, school, playgrounds, Town Hall, on the pier, at the airport, and at the beach, to name a few spots. There aren’t many bike lanes, but the roads are narrow and there are few sidewalks, so people on foot and on bikes and in cars all manage to share the public way. There are bike paths in the Cape Cod National Seashore that bring you through beautiful sand dunes and to spectacular ocean vistas.

Provincetown has been designated as a Silver-level Bicycle Friendly Community (BFC) by the League of American Bicyclists.

Provincetown is the smallest town awarded in this nationwide round of applications and joins eleven other Massachusetts towns and cities honored by the BFC program.

Bike culture is an indicator of how normal it is to ride a bike and to see others on their bikes. You can see Provincetown’s culture of everyday bicycling reflected in its music, art, and history.
