Ridewithgps map https://ridewithgps.com/routes/30327944

Reach the Beach Oregon is widely acknowledged as the official start of the Oregon cycling season! Four different routes as well as a Cycle Your Way option ensure that the event has something for everyone from experienced cyclists to those new to distance riding. Characterized by Oregon’s stunningly varied landscape, the in-person ride proceeds from rolling wine country fields, through tiny towns, to the pounding surf and soaring dunes of Cape Kiwanda where a finish line at the beach awaits. The waves crash on the shore as the sun sets behind Haystack Rock and you relax in Pacific City.

You will need to be able to complete this route in 9 hours, which includes generous breaks.
