Three week tour of Oregon - How does this route look?
« on: October 08, 2014, 08:06:35 pm »
Following on from the transport question here's the route
It was put together via a request to Cycle Oregon
The coastal part is as they say in the UK a 'no brainer' I'm more interested in the return inland section, thoughts? I'm especially interested in views and in that I don't mean endless trees.
