Hmm...I'm surprised over the lack of references to this route as a cycling journey...here's a few links:

That does sound interesting.
I've only ridden part of the coastal route... Astoria south to Florence; then west to east from Florence to Bend, via McKenzie Pass and Crater Lake.
Haven't ridden in Washington though.

Anyone here ridden the Lewis & Clark's Corps of Discovery route? I live in south central Washington, near one of the Corps of Discovery's campsites. For a few years, I've thought about riding the route from Ilwaco, Washington to Clarkston, Washington (west to east, with the prevailing winds - which are pretty stout in the Columbia River gorge!). I have a guidebook for the entire route, but it's aimed at motorists, not cyclists.

I'm curious if anyone here has attempted the ride. This past weekend, I drove Hwy 14 along the Columbia from Camas, WA, to its intersection with I-82. It looks like a beautiful ride (for the most part).

Love God. Love your neighbor. Change the world. It really is that simple.
