Always trying to find the sweetest stops along the way, biking on the Cape Cod Rail Trail has never been better. Start off in South Dennis and make your way to Orleans (roundtrip ride is 26 miles). Bring a towel and suit to cool off in Seymour Pond and work up an appetite to treat yourself to a Brewster Bun at Eat Cake 4 Breakfast. With a name like that how can you not stop in! I tried the Brewster Buns (ok maybe more than one) and they were scrumptious. Not too heavy with just the right amount of cinnamon and sugar. The chocolate croissants, nutella nautilus, and chocoholic chip cookie were heavenly and all worth every calorie. There is plenty of seating outside to relax and savor every bite.
