Actually, the shoulders are pretty wide at least as far as Elsie. The Elsie-Timber Junction-Vernonia-Mist loop that we do in September rides Highway 26, albeit pretty early in the morning.

A much longer alternative would be to cut off 26 on 53 south to Nehalem, then north to Cannon Beach. That adds about 35 miles to your trip, plus you'll be spending a lot of time on 101. 101 is worse than 26.

Too many bikes, not enough time.
