Others have noted the same thing, but I would like to point out that the original Three Capes Route over Cape Meares is open to bikes.  The official ACA advice is to take an alternative route over the Ekloff road.  That route is OK, but the original route over Cape Meares is more scenic and has low (in some places no) traffic.    There is a rideable packed gravel section of about 100 feet and two of 25 feet in the section that is closed to cars.  I was there today (8/12/2018) to verify.   Ekloff Road has a lot more gravel and is considerably less scenic.  The road south from Tillamook to the Ekloff Road is not particularly pleasant.

I see lots of bikers riding the dangerous section of Highway 131 toward Netarts -- some of them probably because of the impression that the route over Cape Meares is closed.
