Park at Barb's Bike Shop in Dennis where you can rent bikes. The shop is near the Dennis entrance to the rail trail. Proceed east through Dennis then on to Harwich and Chatham.

Nice bike ride down the Cape Cod Rail Trail with my daughter and her awesome friends. Had to rent one additional bike so did that at Barb's Bike Shop which is very close to the trail. It was a little drizzly at first but on the way back the sun was shining. The Chatham end can be a bit confusing as you weave in and around roads. Very nice over all, highly recommended.
