As another Independence Day comes and goes, the dog days of summer approach us. Traditionally recognized as a period of time characterized by hot and humid weather, the dog days are known to induce laziness. This year, the July/August months come with a different mindset. After a long stretch of time spent within our own homes, the warm summer air provides a safe space for outdoor activities. Whether you are looking for a fun activity to do with your kids, a quick route to travel, or a way to enjoy the beauty of Cape Cod, biking is a wonderful choice! From rentals to parking, here’s everything you need to know about biking to Woods Hole:
