Bike Southampton!


The Southampton Village Historic Bike Route is on the homeland of the Shinnecock, who continue to live and work on Long Island.


We respectfully acknowledge and honor all Indigenous communities - past, present, and future - for their ongoing and fundamental relationships to the region.



A 7-mile loop, this safe route takes recreations around the wide streets of Southampton to critical cultural institutions and places of historical significance. Working with the Southampton History Museum, the Southampton African American Museum and the Shinnecock Nation, the route aims to incorporate many facets of the illustrious village’s history. From the sandy outlook of Dune Church to the newly inaugurated Southampton African American Museum, this historic loop showcases the picturesque beauty of Southampton. Other notable stops on the route include the new Moses Park, Lake Agawam Park, the Pyrrhus Concer homestead, the Halsey House & Garden, and the Rogers Mansion.


Guests are encouraged to complete the route at their own pace. If you wish to complete the loop multiple times please feel free to do so. We also encourage you to stop at each of the marked stops on the tour to learn a bit about the history of Southampton Village.
