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.

Cities on the Gangwon Coast

Below find a complete list of cities, counties, and provinces on the North Han River. You can also find links in the bike path breakdowns.

Hanam City (하남시; Hanam-si) is satellite cities of Seoul (서울특별시; Seoul-si). First established in 1989, the city closely ties itself to the capital, borrowing many resources, including a subway (Line 5; 5호선) and commuter train (Gyeongui–Jungang Line; 경의·중앙선).

Yangpyeong County (양평군) sits on the South Han River (남한강; Namhangang) near the middle-north of South Korea. Its borders touch the bottom of Hanam City (하남시) in the north and the top of Yeoju City (여주시) in the south.
