Korea by Bike
How do you want to experience Korea?
Bikes let you see, smell, and experience the country at your own pace. Watch streams become rivers, waves lap craggy coastlines, mountains surf the green peninsula.
South Korea provides you with a unique opportunity. Fifty-million people live in a nation the size of Indiana. Outsized tax revenue and a pint-sized terra firma allowed local and national agencies to create networks of bike paths that blanket the land.
How much bike path? Thousands. They travel north, south, east, west.
Looking for an afternoon excursion? How about a week-long adventure? Korea by Bike will guide you through rocky coastlines, historic treasures, and mountaintop views.
Let’s pedal ahead!
Bike paths blanket Korea. Eleven, which cross the country, traverse mountain passes, and cycle through ocean spray, hold red booths that allow riders to stamp bike passports and win awards.
