Cycling Lewes Delaware to Rehoboth Beach

This one was on my bucket list for a while. 
While not my favorite ride, 
it was a beautiful, scenic day. 

Delaware Breakwater Lighthouse

We found street parking in Lewes and 
rode the Cape Henlopen Trails just to explore,
these trails are rather short but connected to each other. 

Whiskey Beach (LOVE it!)

Then we set off on the Gordon's Pond Trail.
This trail is kind of fun 
with boardwalks to ride on
through scenic salt marshes, 
though we didn't see much wildlife.  
We continued south to Rehoboth Beach. 
We rode around Rehoboth since we had never been there. 

Gordon Pond Trail

It was November at the time 
so we did ride on their boardwalk 
which is technically not permitted. 

WW II Towers

From Rehoboth, 
we took Henlopen Ave to Junction Breakwater Trail
to Freeman Highway back to Lewes. 
The trail is mostly packed gravel 
and is very flat. 

Breakwater/Harbor of Refuge

With the Henlopen exploration 
we rode over 16 miles.
