Cycling in Korea is primarily along dedicated cycleways and rural roads. The few times it is necessary to bike on busier roadways, you will find drivers respectful. For the most part, we will bike right-of-ways lanes designed for cyclists. The terrain is mostly flat with occasional undulating hills. In the fall, stunning shades of orange and red dot the landscapes - particularly throughout the southern peninsula where most of our tour takes place.
September and October are considered the best month to visit South Korea. The hot, muggy and rainy days of summer have passed.
