Bicycling (Street & Trail) 2:34:04 [3] 27.5 mi (5:36 / mi) +152m 5:30 / mi

Having taken the ferry from Woods Hole, MA, Peggy and I rented e-bikes in Oak Bluffs on Martha's Vineyard island.
We first biked over to Tony's Market where we got lunch sandwiches and drinks. We took those with us and went back to about where the ferry dropped us off. We rode Seaview Ave. going past marathon runners who were on the hiker/biker trail. We ate lunch at the Jaws Bridge.
Scenes from the movie Jaws were filmed in Oak Bluffs and around the island. We reached Beach Rd. and Upper Main St. in Edgartown. There we stopped to walk out to the Edgartown Harbor Lighthouse.
A couple were getting there wedding pictrues taken in the areas. Returning to the saddle, we went out Water St. and Katama Rd. to Mattakeset Herrring Creek and the fast eroding Katama South Beach.
We looped Atlantic Dr., to Herring Creek Rd., and Katama Rd. again. Turning left on Cleveland Town Rd., we Meshaket Rd., we passed many rural homes. We got onto a trail again at Edgartown - West Tisbury Rd., heading west. This got us to Manuel F. Correllus State Forest. That wasn't very interesting and the trail had regular bumps. The e-bikes had fat seats that were cutting into my hamstring while I pedaled. it got pretty uncomfortable at times. Eventually we got on Barnes Rd., and actually rode a few hills along Lagoon Pond. We got to an old part of Oak Bluffs on School St. at Pacific Ave. We wrapped up the ride through town on Dukes County Ave., Siloam Ave., and Lake Ave.

The ride and scenery were nice. It was good to see the runners. We walked some more to have some ice cream in town on Circuit Ave. before taking the ferry back. Martha's Vineyard was nice but it did seem overrated for the cost of things.
