Riding Bicylces??? help

I was curious as to whether its worth renting bikes in Edgar town and if so, is it safe with all the traffic? Can you actually take a bike ride to beaches too and Gay Head?

Or are they any buses going to Gay Head and how far of a drive would it be? Thanks

The ride to Gay Head (Aquinnah) is 15-20 miles... a lot of it is up hill. Riding to the beaches definitely is do able. The bike path between Edgartown and Oak Bluffs is really pretty.. it's about a 6 mile ride.

The Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) buses can get you around the Island. You can check their website on www.mvol.com There are also tour buses if you're interested.
