Default Union Station to Newberg

Fellow cyclists,

I'm organizing a bike tour for the Vancouver Bicycle Club located in Canada. We plan to take our fully loaded touring bikes on the Cascades Amtrak to Portland then follow the Nestucca River Route to the Coast then head north along hwy 101 back home. The cycling distance is about 1,000km (loaded with 50lbs of camping gear!).

Since we don't arrive at the Union Station until 3 pm, I'm looking for a route that gets us out of downtown and heads south west towards our evenings destination. Hwy 99 seems to be the most direct route but I wonder how busy and unpleasant it is. Depending on the weather and our energy level after a 6hr. train ride, our destination would either be camping at Champeog State Park or moteling it in Newberg.

Any suggestions on a preferred route out of town towards Newberg would be greatly appreciated. A cue sheet using Bikely.com would be beneficial for navigation.

Take care,
Dan
