Self Contained Bicycle Tour

This bicycle tour is suitable for Experienced Cyclists of All Levels!

A note for the faster riders. Once you get to the Island you can go to it as hard as you like!

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!




•               Art galleries

•               Blues clubs

•               Movie theaters

•               Arcades

•               Dancing

•               Lots of ice cream shops!

All of which are easily accessible by bicycle, even at night, provided you bring a good light set.

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!


I hope to make this your best cycling experience yet!

Activists work toward self-sustaining Martha’s Vineyard

By Whit Griswold

September 28, 2011

More than 30 people turned out for an alternative transportation parade through Vineyard Haven on Saturday, September 24, followed by an open forum at Grace Church on how best to address climate change. Known as Moving Planet, Moving Island, the event was organized by a newly formed group called the Island Climate Action Network (ICAN) in coordination with the global effort of Bill McKibben’s organization, Rallies big and small were held in more than 2,000 communities in 175 countries around the world on Saturday.

MV Family Campground 2010

My First Ride

I remember my first ride down the Hudson River Bikeway post 9/11. At the time I lived in Palisades, NY. I rode to work everyday over the George Washington Bridge. The Towers always dominated the NYC skyline by a long way. After 9/11 I would stop halfway, mid span and stare at the empty space in complete disbelief.

I rode down the bikeway yesterday from West 59th Street except this time 10 years after there’s the new Freedom Tower – its amazing to see it rise so fast after an 8 year wait getting started. 

I felt the same surreal feeling creeping through my body that I had the first time I dared ride down the Hudson River Bikeway to see that the Towers were really gone.

Just getting started

Along the way

Mess Transit?

We made a family decision to ride to Williamsburg before Irene really got going…We just didn’t want to get stuck in the Mess Transit System for the trip back!

Nobody out







Bridge to saftey

There were lots of nasty looking clouds around us. I was really relieved to finally get to the Williamsburg Bridge!




Safe in Williamsburg.

Ready for the storm!







We weathered the storm watching about 24 hours of baseball, what else! We rode home without an incident until we got just two blocks from Battery Park City all of a sudden the wind was roaring and even stronger as we turned into Gatway Plaza.

We got home safe and sound!

Fun on the way home




Glad we didn’t have to deal with the Mess Transit System!

Coming home


Who Pushed Me?

Cargo Cowboy NYC Urban Adventure…

Trailer Fairy blessing the Cargo Caboose & Micro trailer!

Very excited about going to Williamsburg to pick up 25 cases of empty bottles for Joulebody Kickstart Cleanse!

I could only get 14 into the Cargo Caboose so I thought I better use the Urban Brute. I just love climbing the Williamsburg Bridge!

Nice setup

I saw this cool home made Cargo in Williamsburg and just had to stop to check it out.




All loaded, no problem





I’m sure they think I’m pretty strange at the warehouse. When I got there the manager came out, saw the Urban Brute, thew up his hands and said “That’s never gonna fit.” with a complete look of disgust and walked away shakin his head!

Well eXcuse me!

They have a great crew that loaded me in about 3 minutes.

Looking forward to climbing the bridge

Good thing I have friends in high places!

The art of going Slow is not for everyone







I always take the route home on East Broadway. So there I was siting at a red light, like any law abiding cyclist and some asshole started shaking my trike back and forth. So I turned around thinking I was going to be in some kind of ridiculous NYC type of confrontation but there was no one there?

There was a car next to me so I figured some asshole reached out the window and shook the trike -WTF- no big deal to me so off I went. I was approaching Chinatown and was wondering why everyone was outside staring at the tops of buildings?

Everyone out in Chinatown

Everyone out in Foley Square

Then I realized that a wave had went right under me! I could really feel it because of the three wheels on the ground, I could feel one wheel rise up at a time, pretty wild day in NYC.





Glad to find out that everyone was OK!

Beach Day

Can’t say for sure. All we got were photos and no story sent to us.

Added a couple more to Martha’s gallery.
