Got a bit of snowtime - Yay

We got a bit of snow today! Yay...took out the all mountain hardtail for a little rip in the snow.

Remember those roots and those wooden logs as stairs get very slippery when wet/snowy!

free subway....

Free subway...but it sucks because it means the air has been so shitty these past few days

We said it...the air quality sucks...it blows...the PM 2.5 (which is the smallest micro particles that screws you up) have been dangerously high these past few days.

As a effort to help in some way, the metro system in Seoul, Korea's biggest city, is having free subway rides for commuters today....but only during peak hours. Which to me blows since during peak rush hour times...the system is already taxed as it is. Not sure if you have ever taken the Seoul subway during rush hours...but you are literally a sardine in a box...pushed..squished...degraded. I can see why people are so pissed off in big cities...the busy commute is a good reason to screw up your start to your day with negative energy and F up your whole chi.

 

The metro was free the other day too...and some news outlets reported that it doesn't seem to be too effective since they only saw a 2% increase in normal commuter usage. I think it would be nice if free times were offered in a bigger window...not just for the small peak rush hour window. I took the subway at 9am and I had to pay...which is fine...but sucks that I don't get a benefit because I am heading to work later than the massive unfortunate horde of unhappy subwaytastic commuters. 

 

Do you think these free rides will help...do you think this is something that would make you leave your car at home?

What about better cycling infrastructure which can lead to safer cycling and wellbeing....

What do you think...comment and follow us on instagram, facebook and youtube.

Mtb and sunsets

There are many nice spots to catch the sunset...but on top of mountains can be calm, rewarding and special place to take it all in. 

We love our All Mountain hardtail bike, we can bring that thing all around Korea. Korea is a good place to mountain bike and it offers a variety of terrain for all level skills. 

 

* Korea is a very mountainous country which gives you a nice variety of terrain and riding style

 

Birds singing, sunset setting over Gwanaksan...a perfect way to escape the feeling of a busy city while still being in the city....

 

Where were you on your first sunset of the new year? Comment below and share with us...#seoulcycle

Seoul Cycle Video - Namsan Tower - Spring Time

‪#‎SeoulCycleVideo‬

Here is a video cycling up and down Namsan shot on April 12, 2016. There were lots of fluffy cherry blossoms. It made it for a very beautiful ride...minus the buses (better early morning, late afternoon or at nighttime...less buses)

Namsan mountain during spring. The cherry blossoms are almost finished. On top of Namsan, you can find a giant tower (also nice at nighttime) with restaurants, cafe, convenient store, pagodas and also great views of the city. Be careful when you ride this road, as you can see there are buses that you need to share the road with.
