In Oregon, a bicycle is legally considered a vehicle, and the same Oregon road laws apply. Please “be seen” and practice safe riding. Vehicle traffic, farm equipment and narrow shoulders exist on many Oregon roads, and you may find that construction projects, traffic or other events may cause road conditions or signage to differ from the map results, ride descriptions and directions. For travel options plus weather and road conditions, visit tripcheck.com, call 511 (in Oregon only), 800.977.6368 or 503.588.2941.

Serving the most upscale cuisine in Manzanita, Blackbird still manages to retain the friendly feel that defines the Oregon Coast. Chef and owner Lee Vance focuses on a fresh seasonal menu, taking advantage of Oregon specialties like Netarts Bay oysters, Dungeness crab, grass-fed beef, community-supported fisheries and farm-fresh produce. The bar mixes a host of classic and specialty cocktails (including the Last Word — a must-have for some), as well as a wine list that pays homage to Europe, South America and the Pacific Northwest. The spare dessert menu is perfectly simple: pot de creme or buttermilk ice cream. It’s open for dinner from 5 p.m. to close; reservations recommended.
