There is a social 20 km bicycle event at the Nakdong river (near Hadan station) on Saturday 13 August. Only the first 500 participants are allowed. It costs 10 000 won. You can register by filling out the google form on the event page and transferring the money to the organiser's bank account.
The google form is in Korean, but I've translated it and it's really simple to fill out. See the pictures attached for guidance.
The organisers did not share a route map, but here's a probable route map:
I've registered and hope to see some of you there!
Life has been busy and my bicycle and blog has seen less of me than I would want, but an adventure is waiting around the corner. I have a lovely 2-3 weeks available with a partner to take on some of the longer routes that time has not allowed. And this time we're going to try camping along the way.
Usually I don't like to plan bike trips too much, just book a bus, hop on the bike, ride till we're tired, find a motel and do it again the next day. It's so stress free and satisfies the wanderlust. But this time as it's a 2 to 3 week trip, we've decided to go all out, especially since we want to plan our buses and camping locations.
Just looking at the places on the maps, planning the kilometers and camp sites is already part of the adventure! I hope to share lots about the East coast route soon, even though it's not completed yet. We will go from Busan to Goseong to Chuncheon to Seoul to Ara, the Han and down to the Nakdong. Happy and safe cycling to all!
