General Information

The Republic of Korea, is famed for perfectly blending the ancient and modern, while seamlessly adopting the new without forgetting ancient ways. Known in Asia as the ‘Land of Morning Calm,’ South Korea's geography, vibrant culture & world class cuisine make it a treat to visit.  The world's largest Cycle Lane network The Four Rivers, complete with biking passports makes it Asia’s hot spot for cycling.  This ride builds on the hugely popular 2023 PeopleCycling South Korea tour.

April is the ideal time to visit, at the start of Cherry Blossom Season, with perfect temperatures for riding. Our adventure begins on Sunday 7th April 2024, at the Kensington Hotel in Seoul (ICN). Over 15 days and 14 nights our journey travels 400 miles, and climbs around 16,000 ft, almost exclusively on the Four Rivers cycle lane network.  From skyscrapers, and trendy art districts in the backstreets of Seoul we travel to the quiet countryside villages and Imperial tombs from centuries long dynasties, Our Korean experience ends on the Island of Jeju (CJU) on Sunday 21st April.  The international airport at Jeju offers many international options for return flights.

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.
