Ibike Korea People-to-People Program


Photo Essays: Korea Bicycle Tours

We have posted a number of photo essays for Korea that have been derived from bicycle tours around the country.

Structurally they are mostly organized by river trail:

  • Hangang (starts near Seoul)
  • Saejae (a link between the Hangang and Nokdong)
  • Nokdong (ends in Busan)
  • Seomjin (river on the south coast)
  • Yeongsan (river between Gwangju and Mokpo on the west coast)
  • Guemgang (river between Gunsan and Daejon on the west coast)
  • Ocheon (a link between the Guemgang and Saejae)

Areas that are not covered by the river trails are somewhat geographically:

  • East (to join this route start on the Hangang and follow the rivers to Yangsu)
  • Central (to join this route start on the Hangang and follow the rivers to Sanju)
  • West (this is a link between the Yeongsan River and Guemgang)
  • South Sea and Islands (this section starts in Gyeongju, in the south, which is the end of the "East" route)
  • Jeju-do (this is a large island off the south coast)
  • Seoul
  • Busan

Spliced together from sections on the other pages are the tour routes: (Korea Tour's Route Map)

  • The Eastern, Central, and Four Rivers Tours start in Seoul on the Han River.
  • The Sojourn to the Southern Sea and Islands Tour starts in Gyeongju.
  • The Western Rivers Tour starts in Gwangyang.
