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.
Excerpts from "Cycling The Megalopolis Of Seoul".
FLORIDA IS UNDER A PUSH FOR OVERREACHING DEVELOPMENT NOT SEEN SINCE THE SALE OF SWAMP LAND AS HOMESITES IN THE EARLY 1920'S. THE DRIVING FORCE IS GOVERNOR SCOTT AND HIS CRONY-CAPITALIST BUSINESS BUDDIES AND THEIR QUEST FOR EXCESS PROFITS ON THE BACKS OF THE GOOD CITIZENS AND HOME OWNERS. LOOK, WE GET IT. DEVELOPMENT AND GROWTH WILL ALWAYS HAPPEN, BUT DO THEY HAVE TO HAPPEN AT THE TOTAL COST OF THE SWAMPS, SPRINGS AND THE TOTAL LIFESTYLE OF RURAL RESIDENTS? NO, THEY DON'T BUT THE CURRENT PUSH MOVING INTO NORTH FLORIDA IF LEFT UNCHECKED WILL RESULT IN A MIAMI NORTH OR WORSE. IF THAT HAPPENS, IT WON'T MATTER HOW MANY NEW RESIDENTS AND CORPORATIONS HE BRINGS TO THE STATE WHEN THE WELL RUNS DRY. WE'LL ALL BE LOOKING FOR A NEW HOME.
MATT SURRENCY, THE MAYOR OF THE SMALL CITY OF HAWTHORNE WILL BE MY GUEST AS WE TRY TO FIND A MIDDLE GROUND AND SOME COMMON SENSE SOLUTIONS ON NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE THURSDAY NIGHT AT 9. THIS IS A PROBLEM NOT JUST IN FLORIDA BUT EVERYWHERE, SO WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AS WE TRY TO TURN A WIN-LOSE INTO A WIN-WIN SITUATION. HOPING TO KEEP YOU INFORMED OF WHAT IS GOING ON A REAL TOPSY-TURVY WORLD.
A home is not a home because of its room dimensions or the color of the walls. It is about how you feel when you walk through the front door. And the way you can instantly envision your life unfolding there.
This is about more than real estate. It is about your life and your dreams.

FINALLY, NORTH FLORIDA WRITER IS BACK ON THE AIR WITH A PROGRAM WEDNESDAY NIGHT. OUR UPDATED AUDIO SUPPORT SHOULD MAKE THE SHOW SO MUCH BETTER. WE'LL TALK ABOUT A TOPIC THAT GETS MUCH DISCUSSION BUT, AT LEAST IN THIS BROADCASTER'S OPINION, IS AS PHONY AS CAN BE BUT, OF COURSE, EACH OF US IS FREE TO DECIDE FOR OURSELVES.
REMEMBER IN EARLY 2012 WHEN GEORGE STEPHANOPOULIS ASKED MITT ROMNEY IF THE REPUBLICAN PARTY WANTED TO MAKE THE SALE OF CONTRACEPTIVES ILLEGAL? AT THE TIME IT SEEMED TO BE VERY STRANGE TO INTERJECT THIS SUBJECT INTO A DEBATE OF SUBSTANCE, BUT LATER, AS WE REMEMBERED STEPHANOPOULIS' CLOSE TIES TO HILLARY CLINTON, IT MADE MORE SENSE. AND AS WE'VE SEEN OVER TIME, HILLARY HAS COME TO THE FOREFRONT ON THIS PHONY ISSUE BY CLAIMING TO BE THE ONE CANDIDATE SUPPORTING WOMEN WITH A RECORD TO BACK IT UP. AND SHE USED IT AGAINST DONALD TRUMP IN RECENT TIMES BUT, BINGO, THE TRUMPSTER THREW IT RIGHT BACK IN HER FACE. HE BASICALLY ASKED HOW SHE COULD BE THE WOMEN'S CANDIDATE WHEN SHE DID ALL IN HER POWER TO DESTROY THE VERY WOMEN WHO HAD ACCUSED HER HUSBAND OF SEXUAL ABUSE WITH EVIDENCE TO BACK IT UP.
SO IS THERE REALLY A WAR GOING ON AGAINST WOMEN AND, IF SO, WHO IS LEADING IT AND WHY? AND KEEP IN MIND THERE ARE MANY THINGS GOING ON TODAY THAT ARE OF GREAT THREAT TO WOMEN AND THE MOST CRITICAL RIGHT NOW IS THE IMPORT OF SUPPOSED "REFUGEES" WHO DO NOT ACCEPT WESTERN CULTURE AND HAVE NO RESPECT FOR WOMEN. ONE ONLY NEED LOOK AT EUROPE TO SEE THE POSSIBLE HORRORS THAT COULD BE COMING TO AMERICA SOON. AND WHO IS PUSHING THIS PROGRAM AND WHY?
THERE'S MUCH TO TALK ABOUT AND WE'LL COVER AS MUCH AS WE CAN ON WEDNESDAY NIGHT'S NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE. WE'RE READY TO GO WITH AN IMPROVED AUDIO SYSTEM AND CAN'T WAIT TO GET STARTED. HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US AT 7PM EST.
Rick Wiles greets the Director of Special Operations, and Senior Communications Strategist at Project Veritas, Stephen Gordon, to discuss the Common Core Conspiracy indoctrinating our youth in revisionist history. Rick will also dissect the aftermath of the Iowa Caucus, the bankruptcy of the oil giants BP and Exxon Mobil, and the reverberations in the commodities markets as the global economic slowdown worsens.
NORTH FLORIDA WRITER LIVE WILL PRESENT PART TWO OF PLUM CREEK TIMBER: THE REST OF THE STORY, FEATURING GEORGE SIBLEY'S PRODUCTION FOR THE SIERRA CLUB OF PLUM PUDDING ON FRIDAY. IT WILL CONTINUE THE EFFORTS TO QUESTION A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT BY A LARGE REAL ESTATE INVESTMENT TRUST IN FRAGILE, WET AND RURAL NORTH FLORIDA. CITIZENS BECOME AWARE OF THE ISSUE AND BEGIN TO ORGANIZE TO IMPACT WHAT IS UNFOLDING. WILL THEY BE SUCCESSFUL IN ULTIMATELY ACCOMPLISHING SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR LOCAL RESIDENTS OF THE AREA OR WILL THEIR EFFORTS BE TO NO AVAIL? WELL, WE'LL JUST HAVE TO WAIT TO SEE HOW IT ENDS UP.
THIS IS NOT AN INDICTMENT OF DEVELOPMENT, FOR WE ALL KNOW THAT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AND JOB GROWTH IS NECESSARY FOR AN ECONOMY TO FUNCTION EFFECTIVELY, BUT THERE IS A CATCH WITH THE APPROACH IF IT ISN'T TEMPERED TO A DEGREE. WHEN ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT ECONOMICALLY DESTROYS THE NEARBY NEIGHBORS, IT'S NOT ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AT ALL. IT'S ECONOMIC DISASTER.
THE SHOW WILL RUN AT 6 PM (ET) FRIDAY AND THEN BE AVAILABLE ON DEMAND 24/7. WE HOPE YOU'LL JOIN US.
