Flats happen....

Always be ready with an extra bike tube and a patch kit....

That is right...flats happen no matter how well prepared or well you think you are riding. Don't piss off your friends by not having an extra bike tube and a patch kit. Don't depend on your friends to have extra gear for you. We always ride with an extra tube and a patch kit....again....tube and patch kit.

 

Why do you need both?...good Combo because....

 

1 --  an extra tube is quicker to change tire...your friends have to wait less...and also depending on weather, you might want to be quick about fixing the flat

2 -- You might get more than one flat...or your patches fail 

3 -- A friend might have been stupid and not brought an extra tube or patch kit...so you can help them out

 

Why do flats happen?

 

That is a question we could talk in long detail about...but to keep it simple

1. improper tire pressure

2. hitting something hard 

3. rolling over something sharp

4. etc

 

We will have some more posts on how to change tires...types of lingo for tire flats...and which patches are better etc.

often nice people...

All types of people are all around, but most of time, if you are nice and respectful, people will return that to you and great times will be had!

Mike, from Zero Cycles, and I went on a little moutain bike adventure to enjoy the little bit of snow sound crunching under our tires. It ended up being a nice clear day and it was awesome!

When we ride, we are always nice to hikers and respectful...we need to share and we can all continue to have a safe and fun day.

1.I have a jingle bell on my bike to let others hear me...when I pass I say excuse me in korean and I also let them know how many riders are behind me.

2. Sometimes you might need to just accept it...stop and let the hikers pass on by first...no sense getting anyone hurt

3. always have a smile and say thank you...and/or have a great day/hike

That keeps everyone happy and safe

On this particular day, we were pretty lucky. We met so many groups of nice Korean people who invited us for some beverages and food (knowing a little korean can go a long way in these situations),

What a great day and I am always grateful to meet awesome fun people....

and yes...always drink responsibly and never ride intoxicated! You are an adult...know your limits!

Share with us your amazing moments meeting nice people while out on the trail..and always ride safe!

Little mounds or rocks....

Called "소원탑" so-one-top, are stone mounds made by hikers to grant a wish or positive energy

These so-one-top are literally located almost at the top! These little mounds of rocks are usually made by hikers who carry a rock from the bottom and place them in a pile and say a wish or something positive for good feelings etc. They do look cool.

Today Casual ride with the xc hardtail today. Stopped to listen to ice making noises while drinking coffee... And then humped the bike up an icy small mountain road to ride it down hard. Was fun with changing terrain...some spikeys on the tires would have helped...only fell once.

Will have to go back with the gopros and a few am riders for some more fun

Cold sunrise..fresh air

When it's cold and windy...means we get some cleaner air!....good time to dress warm and enjoy a nice sunrise! 해돋이 or 일출 is sunrise in korean.

It was a cold morning and windy at -13C...but the air is fresh... So decided to be less lazy...and went out for a 640am bicycle ride to see the sunrise. 

The wind...niptastic...i went out at 640am to catch the sunrise... Was a nice sunrise...but my bike punished me for sleeping outside. My front brake froze and so did my front shifter. It made the climbs harder and descents more interesting; especially with some little hard snow crust and ice.

Did i pee on my bike you ask? Well yes i did. That golden shower gave it some temporary rotatory satisfaction...but it was only temporary, although worth it to start the steeper descent in relative safety...

Have a great Tuesday...the weekend isn't far away

Going to Lake Baegoon

It is easy to just get on your bike and cycle to many places...we biked from the Han River to Lake Baegoon near Uiwang city...all paved bicycle paths

It is awesome how you can just jump on your bike and ride...ride to your hearts contempt...you literally have access to thousands of kilometers of paths you can ride while you're in Korea. Here is a off the main Han River path idea....(also check out more videos on our instagram and youtube channel)
