Nantucket has over 30 miles of bike paths for your biking pleasure. All of these paths are separate from adjacent roads and allow you to see most of the island. Of course, on-road biking is also available, but you do need to be more careful and vigilant when riding in traffic. The Island of Nantucket is relatively small and flat making for relatively easy biking that can be fun for the whole family.
