Where to bicycle in Cape May this summer.
Cape May is a beautiful town that is perfect to explore by bicycle. That’s why we’re excited to remind our guests that we have a set of brand-new bikes available for all to enjoy.
What can you see by bicycle in Cape May? From the Queen Victoria, you can bike into town, to the beach, or simply take in Cape May’s history and gorgeous architecture. Spend a day enjoying the atmosphere, great shopping, novelty stores, and exceptional restaurants. For those looking to spend more time out and about, Cape May has several lovely bike paths to enjoy. Here are four terrific bike paths in Cape May, some courtesy of Do the Shore.
Cape May Promenade
Also known as the Boardwalk, Cape May’s promenade runs parallel to Beach Avenue and stretches for nearly two miles. The promenade is your gateway to unparalleled views of the ocean. Plus, there are a handful of small businesses along the way including candy stores, arcades, and ice cream shops. It’s the perfect casual ride to enjoy with friends and family.
The Wildwoods scenic bike route stretches almost the entire length of Cape May, so it’s a great choice for bikers who want to see it all. It begins at Rambler Road in Wildwood Crest and runs north to Wildwoods Boardwalk at Cresse Avenue. Then, cyclists may continue on a path adjacent to the beach along JFK Boulevard. Please note that bicycles are only allowed on the boardwalk from 5 am until noon.
Cape May Shoreline
Another great ride to tour is the Cape May Shoreline. This ride includes destinations like the Cape May Lighthouse, Cape May-Lewes Ferry Terminal, Cape May Nature Center, and Sunset Pavilion. You’ll see some of Cape May’s most popular sights while enjoying the fresh air, sunlight, and shoreline scenery. Use a Cape May Shoreline Ride Map to make the most of your outing.
The Middle Township begins near the Cape May Zoo and runs for about7 miles towards Sally Marshall Crossing. It’s a paved path with lots of traffic but serves a good purpose as an open commuting space, running through the center of town. Zoo-side, you can add on a 5k cross country route through the zoo grounds. At Sally Marshall Crossing, you can pick up the Cold Spring Bike Path. This path follows an old railroad bed and links sites like Atlantic Cape Community College, the 4-H Fairgrounds, and the Davies Sports Complex.
