Ocracoke is a fabulous place to cycle. 13 miles of flat, low traffic, highway that skirts the dunes. 2 miles of NPS bike path from town to the NPS camp ground and the NPS lifeguard beach. Every hotel and ice cream stand has bicycles outside to rent. Everything in town is walking and bicycling distance. One of the joys of Ocracoke is, once you have driven there, for the rest of your vacation you have no need to get in your car again.
