Ride Description

General Information 

Our adventure begins on Sunday 6th April 2025, at the Kensington Hotel in Seoul (ICN). Over 15 days and 14 nights our journey travels 470 miles, and climbs around 22,000ft. Biking the length and breadth of the country, on pristine and mostly flat cycle lanes, with our Four Rivers passports filling up with provincial stamps. We’ll cross via two days with more climbs to the coastal route, then travel by train or van to Busan, then overnight ferry to Jeju, where we circumnavigate the popular island over 3 days. Our Korean experience ends on the Island of Jeju (CJU) on Sunday 20th April 2025. The international airport at Jeju offers many international options for return flights. 

Throughout this journey, we will be supported both by local biking guides, and vehicle support. Airport transfers from and to our start and end hotel on arrival and departure days are included, as is bike box transfer to Jeju. Most meals are provided, as well as daily Happy Hours, as marked in the breakdown below. 

Our ride is supported by WeAdventure, a bike touring specialist with the necessary experience and facilities to deliver this world class bicycle tour. Bike rentals, pre and post nights, transfers and extensions can be arranged through WeAdventure, and should be requested directly after ride leader acceptance.

People Cycling's Ride Rating

People Cycling has four categories for our rides – Easy, Moderate, Difficult, and Challenging. It should be somewhat obvious what these categories mean, but please become familiar with the elevations and distances that define them:

Easy rides are under 30mi/48km in average distance and 1600ft/500m in average elevation
Moderate rides are over the Easy rating but under 50mi/80km and 2460ft/750m
Difficult rides are as over the Moderate rating but under 75mi/120km and 3280/1000m
Anything over the Difficult rating

NOTE: This is not a strict guideline. There could be rides that have a day or two where the average elevation or distance exceeds the values given above. These anomalies should be outlined in the ride description. It is recommended that you read it carefully.

About People Cycling

People Cycling is a bicycle touring club, which you can join for free. We offer Domestic and International Cycling Tours which are led by volunteer Ride Leaders. Our tours are made up of a small group of participants (typically 15-20 or so) who want to ride an average of 30 to 55 miles a day over a one or two week period in interesting regions of the world. Our tours range in price from frugal getaways to luxurious adventures. We travel road, gravel, or mountain bike styles, and all bicycle types – including e-bikes, recumbents, and tandems are typically allowed.

Our ride leaders are volunteers and do not financially profit on tours they lead. They are also given broad discretion on how to lead their tours, and we consider them our greatest asset.

People Cycling tours are operated at cost or at lower cost (as negotiated by our ride leaders) than individuals can obtain on commercial tours. Within the cost of a tour, there is a nominal fee to support club operations and provide tools to ride leaders to manage their rides.
