Sometimes my family likes to spend time down by the Cape Cod Canal. We only live about 20 minutes away and it’s a really, really nice place to go for a walk or a bike ride. The Cape Cod Canal bikeway extends for about 8 miles along the Cape Cod Canal between the Bourne and the Sagamore bridges. The bikeway is a paved path designated for bikers, foot traffic and non-motorized vehicles only. The views of the canal’s various boat traffic, along with the area’s quaint shoreline scenery are absolutely gorgeous.
The bikeway is a popular destination for cyclists, pedestrians, inline skaters and runners – especially in the summer time. I feel so lucky that I live so close to such a great place like this.
There is an area along the path with picnic tables & porta potties if you needed it and there are benches along the bikeway itself. I love walking the canal and watching for boats to pass by down the canal. It reminds me of my childhood! I am looking forward to getting back to the canal again soon!
