The biking season on Cape Cod, generally speaking, runs from Mid April until Mid October. Cape Cod Cycling Club hosts a variety of group rides and events during these months.
For those new to group riding, it is important to realistically evaluate your fitness level. The use of tracking aids like speedometers, GPS cycling computers, and heart rate monitors can help.
