Gangwon Bicycle Path

Ride along Korea's east coast towards the DMZ.

The Gangwon Path hugs the east coast of Korea. Sometimes challenging, sometimes breezy, you’ll pass harbor cities, explore a few resort towns, and  stumble upon beach after beach.

Your destination is the DMZ. Dashes of barb wire and a sprinkling of military outposts accompany you along the way. Don’t worry. Defense infrastructure is more of adornment nowadays.
