Agenda from 06/01/2016
The Bikeways Committee supports and advises on the use of bicycles throughout the town for transportation and recreation. A map showing our town-wide network of designated bike routes can be downloaded from this website or obtained at Town Hall or the Falmouth Chamber of Commerce.
The Bikeways Committee also directs maintenance of the Shining Sea Bikeway, a paved pathway of extraordinary beauty. The Bikeway extends 10.7 miles, from County Road in North Falmouth to the Steamship Authority's Ferry terminal in Woods Hole, a historic seaside fishing village and the site of several major research institutions. It also connects at a number of points to the network of designated Bike Routes across Falmouth.
The Bikeway traverses salt marshes, cranberry bogs, ponds and woodlands; it skirts sandy shores and a busy working harbor. Its course includes numerous intriguing geological features. It is also the only bikeway on Cape Cod that has a section along the seashore.
