Please especially avoid Highway 22 and Nestucca River Road - cyclists will be using these narrow rural roads. This part of the course is very narrow and we want to reduce the car traffic as much as possible for this scenic duration of the ride. Highway 18 west to Highway 101 north will get you to the finish line without traveling along these roads.
