Welcome to the Oregon Coast Bike Route
Tips for a Safe Ride
Please ride carefully, be courteous of other roadway users, and follow the rules of the road.
In Oregon, bicyclists are required to follow the same rules as motorists insofar as they
apply; ride with the normal traffic flow, as far to the right side of the roadway as practicable. Bicyclists may ride
may ride two abreast, but should only do so when it is safe and will not impede traffic.
When riding after dark, the bicycle or its rider must be equipped with a white light visible
at least 500 feet to the front and a red light or reflector visible at leaST 600 feet to the rear.
In addition the the above rules, we offer these suggestions.
Wear bright or light colored clothing. Don't ride in heavy fog. In summer and fall, the fog
usually lifts by late morning. Wear a helmet. Stop off the roadway.
Beware of strong wind gust on bridges: either ride on the roadway, or walk on the sidewalk.
The two tunnels on the route have "Bicycles in Tunnel" warning lights installed for your
protection; they can be activated by pushing a buttonat the entrance to the tunnel.
