Scott -

I've been on stretches of I-5 locally and other interstates, including some with other Cycle Oregon trips. The Cycle Oregon folks usually do a good job with Oregon ODOT getting the shoulder swept just before the ride, so you can stay way to the side - and on that stretch of road, looks like they've got wide shoulders - maybe 12 feet or so. So, hopefully, it won't be too bad if the weather's good. If not, wind driven water on wet days is really annoying while on a bicycle (yea, did that one time in rain mixed with snow on a Cycle Oregon trip in the Blue Mountains.)

This stretch is to get thru the Siskiyous... not a lot of options for the last few miles in OR and the first few in CA.

The scariest US interstate ride I've had on my bike was earlier this summer in Colorodo... from Colorado 65 junction with I-70 to US 6 junction with I-70 at Palisade.... Basically from the road from Mesa to the cut-off for Grand Junction. For much of that route, it was along a narrow part of the canyon of the Colorado River, and the shoulder was only 4 foot or so, with a rumble strip of better than a foot on the left, leaving about 3 foot for single file riding. That really wasn't any fun....
