Hi. I’m Thomas. I moved to South Korea in 2015. Since then, I married, had kids, and settled down in Ulsan, where they build all the Hyundai cars.
I teach during business hours. Afterwards, I ride, write, and take photos.
Before becoming a teacher, I studied creative writing. I also shimmied around the edges of the movie business and completed a few freelance videography jobs.
I’ve explored much of Korea by Bike. Through rain, snow, and yellow dust, I took thousands of photos and collected countless memories.
Korea by Bike lets me turn my experiences into something useful. I hope it helps you get the most out of biking in Korea.
I wish you happy bike adventures.
Here are additional resources for your biking trips in South Korea.
Created by the Korean Ministry of the Interior, Bicycle Happy Sharing is the official bike certification website. Unlike the Rivers Guide, it details all the national bike paths in Korea.
You’ll discover info about bike routes, certification, safety, and more.
You’ll find tons of info about biking in Korea, including certification, bike rental, repair shops, accommodations, and even a blog with posts by bikers.
The material on Rivers Guide and Bicycle Happy Sharing overlap. However, Rivers Guide only profiles bike paths along rivers. You won’t find info on the East Coast, Jeju Fantasy, or Ocheon bike paths.
You’ll also find a handy interactive map. It helps discover popular and interesting attractions in your area.
From German to Vietnamese to Spanish, Visit Korea also provides the most comprehensive selection of languages.
The website namu.wiki is the most popular user-generated online encyclopedia in Korea. It’s even more popular than the Korean language section of Wikipedia.
