Default All except for Salem...

I agree with Lynne. The given route looks pretty good. The only part I haven't ridden on is the stretch from Hopewell southwards. It looks like a pretty annoying stretch as you go through Salem.

The issue is crossing the Willamette. I think I would probably opt for crossing the Wheatland Ferry (head east from Hopewell), go through Brooks and the Labish Flats (65th & 62nd) to Hazelgreen, then Howell Prairie Road.

In this manner you would avoid Salem altogether, since your stated end is to drop down towards Detroit anyway...
