Details & Itinerary
Between the towns of Dennis and Eastham, along Cape Cod Bay, is the largest expanse of tidal flats in North America. At low tide, the beach extends over one mile deep, exposing an ocean desert that is perfect for exploring by bike.
Leave the crowds behind and come explore a Cape Cod beach the way it should be.

- Visit the oyster farms, visible only at low tide

- Feel free to bring a snack and a drink to enjoy on the jetty prior to the return ride back to Crowe’s Pasture.
What You Should Bring
- Closed-toe shoes
- Extra shoes/sandals and T-shirt to change into after the ride
Best Times for This Excursion
All tours are scheduled around low tide. Favorite times for this tour include those that begin within 3 hours of sunset, which provide some great light and photo opportunities
How strenuous is this?
You need some level of fitness to enjoy this activity. The sand can be soft at times, which is more difficult than a firm surface such as a paved road or bike trail. That being said, you do not need to be an athlete. We will ride at a pace that is comfortable for you, taking as many breaks as necessary. There is no hurry, no stress.
If you are concerned that this may be a bit near your physical limits, please let me know and I will ensure that your group is private to eliminate any worries.
Sunset Schedule for 2022
Riding on the beach is great any time of the day, but going just prior to sunset makes the experience just a bit more magical. Enjoy some of that golden light as the sun hangs low over Cape Cod Bay. I’ll be sure to take plenty of Instagram-worthy photos along the way.
Guided By Experts
Your guide (that’s me, Gregg), knows the area well. All roads, trails, and beaches are second nature.
All Riding Equipment Included
You will be provided with all the necessary gear to enjoy one of Cape Cod’s most spectacular beaches. Bike, helmet, and water and a snack are provided. Radio communication with your guide is also available for those intrepid riders that wish to advance ahead of the group.
Leave the Crowds Behind
You won’t find packed beaches full of umbrellas here. Miles of pristine beach are waiting for you. Feel free to dismount your bike and walk in the sand, splash in the water, and cast your stress far into the ocean.
