Hi anyone out there know if it is possible to ride 60 miles a day on this route? And, what about the weather end of July?

TWC shows an average daily high in nearby Eugene of about 81, but I stayed there in '02 during Cycle Oregon and it was close to 90 during the second week in September.

Easily doable, and beautiful. Go down the coast. You'll most likely have a tail wind the whole way. It's usually cooler there as well. I live in Coburg, and did the trip to the coast and down to San Francisco last summer. I met a group of people who started in Astoria and kept up an eighty mile a day average, though they did have someone sagging. Have an awesome trip!

The weather in July for that part of Oregon is about the best it gets. It's usually about 60-70 degrees (fahrenheit) for the high temperature on the coast, 70-80 inland. And July is the driest month, but still pack some raingear, especially since it can get foggy on the coast.
