I cycled from Cannon Beach to Nehalem Bay State Park and back. Total about 25 miles in 2 hours.
The section between Cannon Beach and Manzinita is quite hilly. There were several pull outs that had great views of the coast.
The down side is that 101 has quite a bit of traffic and a normally wide shoulder was covered in sand and gravel because of the weather conditions over the winter months. My experience was that about 90% of the drivers were courteous and gave extra room while others were less courteous, but could have been due to narrow portions of the road.
Overall, I do not think I would recommend this ride because of the traffic, but if you are OK with the traffic, then the views are quite nice.
