(Portland, Oregon) – A Las Vegas-based travel firm is offering a six-day Oregon coast biking adventure, cruising around a diverse run of beaches, cliffs and foothills along Highway 101. Escape Adventures brings this road cycling tour to town, starting at the northwest edge of it all: at Warrenton and the mouth of the Columbia River. For the next few days you slowly make your way down some 180 miles to Florence. (Above: Manzanita)
Escape Adventures is marketing this nationwide, but it is, of course, open to Oregonians. It has created several small group tours that run from August through September – the latter will come in handy as that is generally the best weather of the year along the Oregon coast. The biking sojourns start at $1,495 per person double. Custom and private tours are also available.
