Adventure Cycling doesn't always have the best route.

We're in Corvallis, OR, on bicycles. We're trying to get back to Davis, CA, (from Portland) but our pace has been 30mi/day rather than the 50mi we expected. How do we get home with our two recumbent bikes by September 13 and enjoy it too?

We prefer small, low traffic roads where we can ride side-by-side for long stretches. We would also like to take the route of least (vertical) resistance where possible.
Our current plan is to ride to Klamath Falls and take Amtrak the rest of the way. We are getting a little faster each day, so a longer trip may also be viable. We're aiming to get through Eugene tomorrow and then make a decision about how to proceed.
Do you have recommendations for routes to Klamath? What abouts other bike/train trips should we consider from here?
Also, we've been told by a couple friendly Oregonians that we have to lallygag while we're dilly-dallying, so do you know of awesome coffeeshops, U-picks, produce stands, or similarly nifty stops along the way?
