How can we make the Oregon Coast Bike Route safer, more accessible and more user-friendly? Share your experience

What is the Oregon Coast Bike Route Plan?

Every year more than 6,000 people ride the Oregon Coast Bike Route (OCBR). The route – designated in the early 1980s – attracts tourists from all over the world and is a treasured resource for visitors and coastal residents. While we do not currently have funding identified for improvements, the Oregon Coast Bike Route Plan will set the stage for future investments. It will identify needs and prioritize improvements to increase safety and improve accessibility and enjoyment for everyone. As the plan develops, we need your input in understanding where the issues and gaps are along the route.

The Oregon Coast Bike Route Plan will:

  • Define the route – both where it follows U.S. 101 and where it follows other roadways.
  • Identify ways that ODOT and local jurisdictions can improve the route and support riders.
  • Identify high priority improvements and develop a plan for implementing those improvements.

Why now?

It has been over a decade since the OCBR was evaluated and no comprehensive planning work has ever been completed. With the changes in bicycle and roadway standards, and the growth of bike tourism destinations and travel options both nationally and along U.S. 101, we believe it’s the right time to do this work.

What is the planning process?

We will work with local jurisdictions and other partners, such as the Oregon Parks and Recreation Department, to coordinate with the Oregon Coast Trail effort, a parallel planning effort aimed at hiking trails. We're looking to improve the biking and hiking experience along the coast for all those involved.
