I live in Washington State and have driven I5 a number of times. Just this
week I saw a bike on I5 for the first time I can remember. In Washington
State there is major annual bike rides from Seattle to Portland (STP) which
as far as I know does not use I5.
Oregon Department of Transportation publishes a bike map [1]. I5 is
included in any of their approved routes.
