Adventure One: Biking Martha's Vineyard

Adventure One: 
Biking Martha's Vineyard
An Off-Season Adventure

Who: You and your beloved family members!
What: A Martha's Vineyard biking adventure.
When: Off season: April-May or September-October
Where: Martha's Vineyard
Why: It's a beautiful, healthy adventure

If you are looking for a reasonable, healthy adventure, plan an off-season bike tour of Martha's Vineyard.  Arrive at the ferry early in the morning with your bikes, helmets, adequate food, trail map, island map and layered clothing.

It will cost you about $12. for a round trip fare from the Woods Hole shore to Vineyard Haven. Then plan a reasonable ride for your family.

If you'd like to spend the night, book early with sites like Priceline, Kayak, Travelocity, or Expedia which will bring you a reasonable rate.  We had a terrific, affordable stay at the wonderful Harbor View Hotel in Edgartown.
