I love Oregon and especially the beaches. This visit was a trip down memory lane for us, because it was five years ago, that Mary and I cycled the Oregon Coast from Seaside to San Francisco.
Cycling the Oregon Coast was an amazing trip! If you have ever tried to get a camping spot on the Oregon Coast, you know that most sites are booked for the summer season a year in advance. However, if you arrive by bicycle or hike, they have sites called “Hiker / Biker” sites that are $10 a night and you are guaranteed a spot.
The Hiker / Biker sites are often the quietest and surrounded by trees and shaded woods, with no hookups or paved parking spots. Plus you get to meet fellow cyclists that are travelling the same route. I don’t recommend the route for your first trip, because there are a lot of hills and in the summer, there are a lot of very wide camper vans travelling that route.
Here are a few photos from Cannon Beach and a few other beaches.
