You can bike from Buzzards Bay to Scusset Beach on Cape Cod in several ways .  
If you choose the mainland side you will see some small slices of unspoiled and naturally beautiful places along the way.  The enlarging in 1928 of the 1915 canal lead to  preservation of small patches of green and the building of two access roads on both sides of the canal. .. The Cape Cod Canal has opened the access roads on both sides to biking and walking, roller blading , carriage and wheelchair.  Seven-miles of road on each side of the  canal are used by ranges to patrol but rarely are there vehicles. The roads are open to recreation including fishing access. Wildflowers grow on the banks beside the trail.
Free parking at eight lots are an added value.
On the paved trail beside the Cape Cod Canal on the north side you can bike nearly 7 miles to reach Scussett Beach from the railroad bridge parking.
