Anyway, this ride is highly recommended. Check the forecast first; I took it July 12-15 and it was perfect but you don't want to be out there when a Pacific front moves in. Been there, done that on beach hikes in the La Push area.

It was mostly the Snoqualmie pass/North Bend to Ellensburg section I was wondering about that, as the alternative to the John Wayne is being stuck on I-90, which sounds unappealing and possibly impossible/illegal for bikes...
The Olympic Peninsula is much more scenic than the inland ACA route, but as you cut towards Oregon, the scenery is not so great. You still need to cut in (East) to the official route to cross the Columbia unless you brave the Astoria BridgeYup, the Astoria bridge--the only time I've ever seen a road kill starfish. We crossed it in twilight on a rainy June evening. On the Astoria side, there were no campgrounds unless we rode another 10 miles. A nice resident of the town we met in a pizza place let us sleep in the attic bedroom of her house. This turned out to be quite an adventure, as my partner managed to plug up the only toilet on the house the next morning and it took about an hour to get it working again.
