Ibike Korea People-to-People Program


Fact Sheets: Schedule and Descriptions

Gongbukmun (gate), Jinju Castle

Repertoire of Korea Tours * (usually one route per year -- if you are planning to participate a year hence, feel free to let us know if there is an itinerary of particular interest to you):

  • National Cycleway System - Central Rivers (2019). We connect together parts of the Hangang, Saejae and Nakdong and embellish it with sections through farmlands and forests.
  • Sojourn to the South Sea and Islands (2018). Travel across the southern edge of the country, hopping between islands of the South Sea. We finish by circumnavigating Jeju Island. This route neither starts of finishes in Seoul so it has the most complicated logistics.
  • National Cycleway System - Southern Rivers (2016). We follow a number of flat river valleys that we link with sections of rural cycling. There is one major hill on the route.
  • National Cycleway System - Western Rivers (2015). This relatively flat itinerary follows several rivers and traverse farmland in the western coastal plain to connect Seoul and the south coast.
  • National Cycleway System - Four Rivers (2014). For a relatively mountainous country, this route is remarkably flat, most running along beautiful rivers and across scenic coastal plains and coastlines.
  • Explore Eastern Korea (2012). This route has the most topography (ups and downs), beautiful long stretches of forests, narrow mountain river canyons, rugged coastlines and grand vistas.
  • Central Cultural Heartland (2011). This route runs most of the length of the country, which means it crosses mountain passes and has some degree of hilliness every day.  It is rich in cultural content and very scenic.

* Itineraries, fares and dates are subject to change.  20% of the land portion is U.S. tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law, for those registering directly with IBF.
