Yachats Oregon Bike ‘n Brunch Video

The spectacular Oregon Coast is a worldwide destination for ambitious cyclists that brave busy and hilly US 101 for the rewards of ocean vistas, pastoral countryside, and access to many wonderful coastal towns.  For the Easy Scenic Cyclist, however, there are precious few places available to explore this region by bike.

My favorite town along the coast is Yachats, the “Gem of the Oregon Coast.”  It lies between Newport and Florence, just north of the spectacular Cape Perpetua coastline.  Cyclists riding along Hwy 101 can pass through the town in a matter of  minutes, but those of us that enjoy slower, scenic riding can linger on its waterfront gravel 804 Trail in the north (part of the Oregon Coastal Trail) and Yachats Ocean Road to the south, with the lovely village in between that offers several interesting eateries to choose from.  You can spend over an hour pedaling around this town that travel guru Arthur Frommer  named as his #7 travel destination in the world!

This short video gives you a feel for what it’s like to pedal around Yachats.
