If you happen to find yourself in Haeundae and you want to transport yourself and your bike via bus to another part of the country here is some information about the bus terminals, destinations, time tables available.
The very first thing you need to know is that within less than the space of a kilometer there are actually 2 Haeundae Intercity Bus terminals (시외버스터미널).Very few people know that you can travel from Haeundae to Seoul directly with a luxury bus.

"The Bicycle Service Center in Haeundae-gu, reopened on March 3.
The center, located along the Suyeong riverside under the Jwasuyeong-gyo Bridge (Suyeong Bridge No. 3) and next to Centum Middle School, is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily until June and will be closed in July and then be reopened again from August to December.
Those wishing to rent a bike must provide identification and their contact information. Rentals are for one hour and there are currently 50 bikes available.
The center also offers free bike repairs* such as changing chains, brake cables, bike tires or tubes.
Haeundae-gu will operate a used bicycle market from April. Anyone wishing to sell their bike may bring it to the center where it will be repaired and sold free of charge. Bikes that remain unsold after six months may be donated with the owner’s consent.

I have decided that if I were to label myself it would be a very enthusiastic amateur cyclist. I'm by no means a professional, I was reminded of this fact just a few days ago when I experienced my first puncture since I started taking cycling more seriously.
And for the first time in my life, I took the tube out, patched it and put it back in the tire. And how did I manage to achieve that, well it's not hard, I just googled it, watched a Youtube video or two and followed the instructions.
Now I feel so much more confident if something like that would ever happen again in the middle of nowhere. Just always remember to have a pump with you, no matter how small. Anyone can fix a tyre, but with no pump, it's a very unsatisfying achievement.
I would like to recommend the perfect spring flower cycling route in Busan. It is easy, flat and covers some of the best flower spots in Busan all in 2 to 3 hours. To have the best possible experience go early morning to avoid the weekend flower seeking crowds.
Any information about cycling in South Korea.
