As described in the brochure:

Monday – Day 2: Bike Paths, Coastal Routes, & Historic Seaports – Today’s ride introduces you to the network of fabulous bike paths crisscrossing the island. Visit historic Edgartown, a bustling port during the height of the whaling era, and home to many wealthy merchants who built lovely Greek Revival style homes throughout the town. Many of these homes are well preserved and help retain the period charm and beauty of the town, which is now a summer haven for the very wealthy. Stroll the narrow streets dotted with chic shops and select a restaurant for dinner later this evening. Take the 3‐minute ferry ride to Chappaquiddick Island to ride the 3‐miles to visit the infamous Dike Bridge and the Japanese Mytoi Garden. Felix Neck Wildlife Sanctuary provides an opportunity to walk the trail past salt marsh to the observation tower where you can view waterfowl in the pond. Ride the bike path along the sea to Oak Bluffs, the unique Victorian seaside community which is home to hundreds of colorful gingerbread style cottages dating back to the days of Methodist retreats that took place every summer. Enjoy a delicious picnic lunch overlooking the harbor in Edgartown. Tonight you will return to this yachting town for a Champagne sunset sail.
