Doug Goodale of Morristown has spent the last eleven years teaching English at the secondary level at two Benedictine Catholic Schools, and coaching wrestling, cross country, track, and rugby teams.
But when the school year ends, Doug Goodale of Morristown likes to spend his summers kayaking and bicycling on Cape Cod, where most of his family lives. There are literally hundreds of miles of dedicated bikeways running through forests, marshlands, rivers, and coastline on Cape Cod, and during the summer, when Doug Goodale of Morristown is there, it’s the perfect time to take advantage of it all.
As Doug Goodale of Morristown knows, the Cape Cod Canal Bikeway follows the Cape Cod Canal through sections of Bourne and Sagamore, respectively. The bikeway is maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers, and offers incredible views of the canal’s boat traffic, along with the area’s quaint shoreline scenery of unique homes and natural beauty. It is suitable for road bikes.
But not all the great biking on Cape Cod is road bike friendly, as Doug Goodale of Morristown knows. Hathaway’s Pond is a short loop around a small lake, and a fat tire bike like a mountain bike is the best choice for riding it.
For hardier riders like Doug Goodale of Morristown, The Trail of Tears offers a twenty-one mile network of singletrack, complete with big ring downhills and short, technical climbs. The Trail of Tears, within the West Barnstable Conservation Area, is one of the most popular riding spots on Cape Cod.
As Doug Goodale of Morristown has learned over the years, Cape Cod is, in many ways, a cyclist’s paradise.
