What’s so great about Martha’s Vineyard?

Each of the Vineyard’s three main towns, (Oak Bluffs, Vineyard Haven, and Edgartown) has a completely different flavor! The island has a music and art scene that rivals NYC (on a smaller scale), with plenty of nightlife!

All three Vineyard towns have attractions and nightlife, but Oak Bluffs has it all and it is just a 4-mile ride from the campground!

Cars are few and the top speed limit is 45 mph. There are no highways or chain stores, which creates a feeling of being very far from the insane pace of New York City!

In my 30 years of cycling experience on Martha’s Vineyard, I still discover new things every time I go. I’m extremely familiar with every inch of the route, and even more familiar with Martha’s Vineyard. I know lots of local spots and a few of the local cyclists to help keep you out of the tourist traps.

The History behind the Ride

I learned about Martha’s Vineyard about 30 years ago, while camping in Woodstock. A cyclist who had been touring around the States told me about the most amazing place he’d ever seen: Martha’s Vineyard. He was RAVING about it—and he just happened to have an extra ferry ticket. Of course I had a bicycle with me so I packed up the next day and drove off to New Bedford to catch the ferry!

He was absolutely right. Cycling on 60 miles of separated bikeways in incredible Vineyard scenery and along pristine beaches was just too much! I couldn’t get enough. I started going to the Vineyard as often as I could, even trips for Thanksgiving and weekends—even in the dead of winter.

To extend that incredible feeling, I decided to ride my bicycle all the way to the Vineyard from my front door in NYC! That brought things to the next level. Arriving in a cycling paradise—by bicycle—was pure bliss.

Since then, I’ve done this trip about 50 times. Only rarely have I driven or rented a car on the island—it’s just not necessary. Martha’s Vineyard is the perfect place for a car-free cycling vacation!

My route to MV goes by way of Montauk. (I’ve been doing The Ride to Montauk almost since it started in the ’80s.)  So I decided to put the two rides back to back. Two fantastic routes in one-week long vacation! How great is that?!?

From Montauk, we do two short day rides with 2 ferry’s to Block Island to Pt. Judith, RI to Newport, RI We spend our second night in Newport, RI then ride on to New Bedford, MA for our final ferry. We arrive in Martha’s Vineyard on Monday afternoon. There, we spend five full days at the Family Campground cabins in Vineyard Haven. The return from Martha’s Vineyard is via Seastreak Ferry right to Manhattan!

 

After all that fun on The ride to Montauk spend a relaxing afternoon on Block Island.

About Me

I started taking long cycling trips on my Stingray bicycle when I was about 11 years old. Living in NYC, I began using my bike as transportation, going from borough to borough. After giving up my drumming career at age 22, I thought that since I rode my bike everywhere, I might as well make money doing it – and became a hotshot NYC bicycle messenger.

I have done lots of bike touring in the States and Europe; local century rides; and innumerable rides to Nyack on the now famous Route 9W. I have commuted to my job in Manhattan from all over the New York City area, including Kew Gardens Hills, Flushing, Queens and Englewood Cliffs, NJ. I first participated in the Ride to Montauk way back when it left from Jamaica Station in Queens, NY.

Today, I am an avid urban-family cyclist. I bike all around NYC with my wife and 6-year-old son. We have many great bicycles to use for whatever we need – including a Recumbent Tandem and Organic Engines Pedi cab!
