Can’t think of a better thing to do when hanging out in a super modern city like Seoul, South Korea then to go for a bike ride. It’s a great way to see another side of life here besides the typical tourist things like visiting temples, museums and going shopping plus it’s so up close to everyday life here.
I actually got my idea for this ride from the latest Lonely Planet Korea guide with a few modifications to the route. Let’s call them accidental modifications. I started out from Yeouido Park where you can rent bikes starting at 3000 won an hour, about $2.50 USD. Yeouido is considered the mecca for cycling in Seoul.
First stop was the Mapo Bridge where there is a designated cycle path making it safe and convenient to check out the views.
The Han River is the fourth longest river on the Korean Peninsula with a total length of almost 500km. This river was once a very large trade route with China through the Yellow Sea however due to estuary location at the borders of North and South Korea the river is no longer actively used for navigation.
An exit ramp from the other side of the bridge takes you to the north side of the river with great cycling paths. Keeping to the left on this path will continue your journey along the Han River. The destination for this cycle is the Seoul World Cup Stadium, built for the FIFA World Cup in 2002.
A great view of the beautiful domed National Assembly Building across the river. the legislative branch of the South Korean national government.
Keep riding along the path past this cliff and under the Yanghwa and Seongsan Bridges.

The Houston Texans have just about wrapped up the AFC-South Division Title. There are several scenarios that give the Texans the title, however the easiest way to guarantee the title and a trip to the playoffs is by beating the Jacksonville Jaguars at NRG Stadium on Sunday. Head coach Bill O'Brien confirmed that Brian Hoyer sucessfully completed the concussion protocal and will start for the Texans on Sunday. O'Brien also talks about the challenges the Jaguars present.
Veteran Defensive Back Jonathan Joseph is one of the cornerstones of this Texans defense. At one point considered washed up by many in the local media, Joseph is having a solid and productive season. He talks about this Texans defense and his play. Offensive Tackle Duane Brown is another veteran who has been through the ups and downs of the Texans recent seasons. He talks about having the opportunity to win the division after they way they started.

After a several weeks long hiatus, the Solid B+ Podcast is back! Things in my personal life and the holiday season itself prevented me from being able to produce a show for a few weeks but never fear, I've been keeping up with all things wrestling to come back and fill your earballs with the wrestling news you need to know about. First and foremost, I take a look at the rumors surrounding AJ Styles, Shinsuke Nakamura, Karl Anderson and Doc Gallows possibly leaving NJPW for WWE and just what that means for both companies. Then I take a look at the current Ring of Honor Top Prospect Tournament, which has been a great way for ROH to introduce new talent. Next, perhaps the biggest newst of the week, I take a comprehensive look at New Japan's Wresle Kingdom 10 event, as well as New Year Dash the following day, and what those events mean for NJPW going forward. Then finally, I fill in everyone on my trip to Los Angeles to see PWG and Lucha Underground in person!
There are countries in the world, mainly in Europe, that are presently undergoing significant cultural transformations as a result of Muslim immigration. France, Germany, Belgium and Holland are interesting examples of cases where immigration from Muslim countries, together with the Muslims’ high fertility rate, affects every area of life. (And Japan has been aware of these disturbing trends, thus the country took proactive measures...)
