Mathews County is known for its flat, level roads, making it an ideal place for cyclist. When they say we are sea-level they aren’t exaggerating. You won’t have to worry about cycling up and down hills here.
Here at our B&B The Inn at Tabbs Creek, we offer bicycles for our guests to use on a first come first served bases, so you don’t even need to bring your own. A short ride down our lane to the main road offers several choices for you to make. Our favorite is a five mile ride to Bethel Beach where you can leave the bike off to the side and take a stroll and see the beauty of this Virginian Chesapeake Bay nature preserve.
There are other choices for cycling as well, like a nice ride into downtown Mathews, or down to the end of the peninsula to see the New Point Comfort Light House. If that’s not enough and you want to take longer rides, we have maps and trails to give you all kinds of routes to suit your cycling needs.
Folks around here are used to cyclists on the road as the county hosts an annual cycling event called the Tour de Chesapeake. A weekend long family event that brings in cyclist from all over. A great event to check out. Traffic off the main road is usually sparse so you’re going to find a relaxing environment to enjoy your cycling adventure.
