HIGHLIGHTS

A lesser well-known secret about South Korea is that she is one of the best countries in the world to explore by bicycle. South Korea has massive cycling infrastructure with a network of bike-only paths spanning the length of the country, a coastline, or across a scenic or challenging segment. These bike routes are a mix of well-maintained paths through parks, along rivers, quiet country trails, and small roads. Most of the paths, barring mountain passes and remote areas, are sometimes car-free.
