DMZ cycling event (+/- 60km)
This event has also been postponed until June 21st 2014 due to the unfortunate ferry accident.
I've always wanted to participate in this event, it happens every year. So I just entered myself! It's all in Korean, but ask a Korean friend to help and it's quick and easy. I've heard so many good stories about this event!
Busan Bus Terminals
Many cyclists arrive in Busan after completing their epic Seoul to Busan bike tour. One of the biggest questions after giving your bum a rest and celebrating your achievement is how to get back to Seoul. There are 4 bus terminals in Busan, knowing which one to use can be very helpful.
Busan Central Bus Terminal (Nopo st.)
Seobu (West) Bus Terminal
