Portland and the Coast - a Couple of Questions

Jump to last reply

Having previous help on this forum to sort out our Portland to Yosemite road trip in August; I now have a couple of further questions.
We are arriving in Portland early afternoon Aug 1, staying at Inn at Northrup Station for 2 nights.

What would be a good itinerary for the afternoon / evening in Portland. The following day we are heading out to tour the Gorge.

On August 3 we are heading to Yachats for 2 nights. I have read on a trip report that you can bike on the beach, on the coast. Where is a good place to do this? The ability to rent decent bikes would be the only way I could get my husband to agree to this. We are avid cyclists and he refuses to ride terrible rental bikes. ( He will be in for a treat in Yosemite lol .)
Thanks in advance.
