CycleNuts Selfie Cycling Tours

CycleNuts Selfie Tours tie together fun, interesting, scenic, historic, tasty, and refreshing points of interest along a bikeway focused tour route where you ride at your pace and your pleasure. You are the tour boss.

With these smart-guided bikeway cycling adventures you bring the bike and smart phone, and CycleNuts provides the Smart Guide. The Smart Guide gives you voice and visual turn-by-turn instructions along an expertly designed and tested tour route.

Do the tour solo or bring along your crew. Easily stop anywhere along the way to visit attractions or refreshments and the Smart Guide will continue the route from wherever you are when you are ready to roll.

Begin at the charming Bethany Beach Boardwalk, explore the numerous attractions along this gorgeous stretch of Atlantic seashore south to the second boardwalk of Ocean City, Maryland, and on the return visit the gorgeous Fenwick Island State Park Beach. From boardwalks to beaches to bars to museums to amusement parks to restaurants to people watching to art shops to unique boutiques, there is no shortage of discovery opportunities while enjoying this fantastic Atlantic coast environment by bike.

Ride the planks or park your bike and take a short stroll on the third-of-a-mile Bethany Beach Boardwalk. From May 15th through September 30th biking is allowed on the boardwalk between the hours of 6:00AM – 9:00AM. Experience the mile long ocean beach on one side and charming boardwalk shops on the other. Bethany Beach is described as relaxing, quaint, homey, quiet, and “dedicated to providing a clean, safe, family atmosphere”. Quite a contrast to the massive entertainment focused second boardwalk on the tour in Ocean City.

From Bethany Beach Boardwalk, the adventure heads south with a scenic vista stop at Little Assawoman Bay. Continuing on it passes through Ocean City to the boardwalk and a turnaround spot at the southernmost point of Ocean City Boardwalk where Assateague Island can be viewed in the distance across the ocean. Getting to that turnaround spot are loads of little shops, big shops, bars, restaurants, beaches, miles of boardwalk, museums, people watching, entertainment, amusement parks, attractions, and city parks. Adventure awaits all along the way. Often there are festivals, community events, and live music in parks along the route.

The three-mile-long Ocean City Boardwalk allows bikes from Saturday of Memorial Day weekend through Labor Day, between 2:00 a.m. – Noon; from Tuesday after Labor Day through Friday before Memorial Day at any time subject to the following exceptions: Springfest and Sunfest (Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday), between 2:00 a.m. and 12:00 noon of the same day; and off-Season: No Restrictions. You can ride the wooden planks or choose the cement pathway running alongside it. With so much to see and take in there just is not enough room here to provide an adequate list of recommendations.

The tour does not end once you leave Ocean City to return to Bethany Beach. The feature attraction on this segment of the tour is Fenwick Island State Park Beach. "The white sand beaches gradually slope into the Atlantic, creating a broad swimming area patrolled by lifeguards during the summer... features a modern bathhouse, showers, changing rooms, park office, and a snack food concession." If you are planning to swim - this is the spot! It is CycleNuts tested and approved. Entrance to the park is free on foot and bike (usually there is a long line of cars waiting to get into the park - but by bike you just ride on past the line).

Most bikes are appropriate for this smart-guided tour. Bring your bike or rent one near the starting spot (see confirmation information for listings). This 33-mile smart-guided route is 83% bikeway and comes with CycleNuts' 50% downhill guarantee. In most places the bikeway is a full lane - big enough for buses, which share the lane. It follows the topography of the land, which is very flat. However, the ocean breeze may at times give you some opportunity to use your bike's climbing gears. Sweating is optional but perhaps unavoidable due to the wondrous sunshine and ocean front humidity. You set your own pace, starting time, and touring agenda with CycleNuts' expert Smart-guided Selfie Cycle Tour guide. Keep in mind that seasonally, bicycles must be off of the Ocean City boardwalk between 12noon and 2AM and the Bethany Beach Boardwalk between 9AM and 6AM.

Points of interest along the way: Ocean City, Ocean City Boardwalk, Fenwick Island State Park and Beach, Bethany Beach Boardwalk, Atlantic Ocean, Little Assawoman Bay, two CycleNuts tested and approved optional tasty spots Brass Balls Saloon and Big Peckers Bar & Grill the area is so chock full of interesting places to see and experience - much more than can be listed here.
