Cyclers of Seoul QnA - May 2, 2016

‪#‎scCyclersOfSeoul‬

For this week's Cyclers of Seoul QnA, we met up with Haewon . 
_
_
Q: Where are you from and how long have you been in Seoul?
-
A: I am from Korea and I have been in Seoul around 8 to 9 years. 
=
Q: What bicycle do you ride? (brand, model, style)
-
A: I ride a Giant SCR 2 ROAD. It is my third bike and I recently purchased it last month. In this year, I plan to participant in one triathlon. But I am not sure if I join it or not. 
=
Q: What is the best thing about Seoul?
-
A: I think that the best thing about Seoul is being able to meet people from various careers and cultures. There are also lots experiences such as historic sites, landmarks, parks and sports to play and more . As you know or not, there are many good food to eat, shopping, and city tours. And I also recommend that you try to get sports experiences in Seoul like cycling, hiking, windsurfing and etc. 
=
Q: Where is the best place to ride?
-
A: Good and hard question to answer. Because there are lots of beautiful riding courses in Seoul and all over Korea. So I would like to recommend two places.
*
1 - The first course is in Seoul and it is called by palace tour. You can start from Jungnangcheon to Namdaemoon Market. You are able to see Korean traditional culture with your bike.
2 - The second place is the Seomjinggang Bicycle Road. It consists of 5 courses (around 154 kilometers). If you visit there, I recommend you plan to stay there 3 or 4 days because there are very good places for you to see on your bicycle and also great hiking tours. 
=
Q: Anything else you would like to share? 
-
A: Long time ago, I went on bicycle trip with friends from Seoul to Jeju island. I remember that we traveled for 10 days. At that time, we slept in empty classrooms, tent and a staff lounge of neighborhood patrol to cut down on expenses and also cooked by ourselves.

And I recommend you participate in some competition for fun such as a Triathlon, GrandFondo or bicycle festivals. After you complete, you feel very cool and it will remain in your memory. I also would like to travel to other countries and join some kind of event abroad. That is my goal in near future. Any recommendation is welcomed! Thank you! Good luck to all.

Seoul Cycle Video - East Coast Temples

Korea has many cool temples to visit and it can be refreshing to stop and take a break at these temples. Chants, smiling/praying monks will always greet you warmly. You can also stay overnight at most of these temples. It is called Temple Stay and it is quite famous among tourists from all over the world and also local Korean people. 

These two videos were recorded at Naksansan Temple in Yang Yang area. It is right beside the beautiful Naksan Beach

Enjoy these two videos and please check out the Korea East Coast Trail on Facebook  (click blue letters to be redirected to page) to see other great things to see, do, cycle and eat on the beautiful East Coast of South Korea

Seoul Cycle FYi - Ride safe

‪#‎SeoulCycleFYi‬

It's getting warmer and you'll see more friends and couples riding tandem bikes together. Please be careful when passing them, as many of them are preoccupied taking pictures, laughing, talking etc...which all lead to them sometimes using up the whole lane and wobbling back and forth.

And if you see them looking alike, you're not seeing double. In Korea it's very fashionable to wear matching, couples' clothing to show that you're a couple and an item.

Keep in mind people of all ages with all types of different bicycles might not be paying attention and might cut you off at anytime. Ride smart...ride safe.

The main spots to ride slower are:
- Yeoido
- Bampo
- Apgujeong
- Jamsil
- Gwangnaru
- Ttukseom
