What a great little ride. Nice 750 foot climb over 2.7 miles. When you cross over to Meyers Creek the grade jumps up to 12% over a quarter of a mile. Itís all down what used to be the old coast Highway. Cross Meyers Creek and head up 100 feet and enjoy the overview of Pistol River and Cape Sebastion. Less than 2 hours and 1600 feet of climbing. Great ride when the wind blows from the North the climb up Meyers Creek does not get much wind. When you head down 101 the wind is no big deal till Kissing Rock. Itís only about a mile into the strong head wind and your back.




28.5 Miles Hwy 101 North to North Bank Rd to Cedar Valley to Hwy 101 Back to the Beachcomber

Not a lot of climbing and somewhat out of the wind. In the summer with the North wind, you almost donít have to pedal. Under 2 hours. Not a lot of shoulder through CedarValley but not much traffic. Hwy 101 has new pavement and nice bike lane.






32 Miles Beachcomber North. Turn right before the bridge at Jerrys Flat Road At sixteen miles at the top of the hill turn around and head home

Look for a nice medium ride when itís windy. The Rogue River is just unreal. I steal rides up Jerrys Flat Road all the time. There is some traffic. Itís like wilderness so you can hear the trucks and cars pretty much all the time. I am usually in a hurry and trying to get back to the Beachcomber before dark. Plan ahead and enjoy the view. I saw a bear last fall going down to the river to get some fish. I really dug the cars passing me that night. They were staying at the Inn and wanted to know what my view was like. I told them theirs was better. 2 plus hour ride.





38 Miles Head North Hwy 101 Left before the Bridge on Jerrys Flat Rd. At the top of the last climb turn around

The grades are a little high but the climbs are short. Over 2000 feet of elevation change with the last climb a mile and half at a 5% grade





Beachcomber South Highway 101 To Myers Creek Road To Hwy 101 to California Boarder & Back

This Ride is best on a day with no wind. Over 4000 feet of climbing 70 Miles. A good 5 hour ride. If you feel strong on the way back stay on Hwy 101 and do the back side of Cape Sebastian. Watch out if you get to Brookings and the normal North wind kicks up. You could turn it into a full day with stops at Arch Rock, Pistol River, House Rock and Natural Bridge.
