Really? My wife and I rode from Champoeg State Park (about 13 miles from Willamette Mission) to home (Vancouver, Washington- about 15 miles from downtown Portland) and we were done by 3PM, with a full touring load, and taking it easy. I don't think it was much over 65 miles. (No computer- haven't had one for 15 years.)

Haven's warnings about the Pete's Mountain area (Mountain, Turner, and Willamette) are valid, but we had no problems. Traffic was pretty light and quite considerate.
