Hey there, I'm in Portland on my way to the coast as quickly and easily as possible....does anyone know this route well? I am en route to california, trying to be timely. I believe my options are the 30 (takes me further north but might be flatter) or the 26 (looks hilly!). This is my first bike tour and although I'v covered some mountainous distances I am by no means an athlete!!
Any advice or encouragement greatly appreciated!
