  • The Magnificent Joseph Silvia State Beach on Nantucket Sound
  • Historic Oak Bluffs' Carousel, Circuit Ave and Campgrounds
  • Peaceful Nature Preserves


This triangular tour is one of the most beautiful family rides on the Vineyard, stopping at some of the most iconic spots on the island. There are bike paths or quiet streets for about 90% of the way, except in downtown Oak Bluffs, which has sidewalks on which to walk your bike. It starts at the Park and Ride lot near the Edgartown “Triangle” shopping area, onto the wooded and sandy Beach Rd bike path, along the magnificent Joseph Silvia State Beach (stop for a swim!), up Oak Bluffs' busy Circuit Ave, through its historic Campgrounds, and returns up County Road, and past two wooded nature preserves, to the Edgartown–Vineyard Haven Road. Riding along the E-VH Rd, it then passes 3 more beautiful nature preserves, and back to the Triangle. If there is a strong northerly wind, it might be better to ride this route in reverse, to avoid a headwind on the unsheltered bike path along State Beach. Difficulty: Easy Distance: 12.3 miles. Elevation Gain: 95 ft. Bike Paths: 90%;
