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 prophetic passage of Scripture that we are looking at today is 2 Kings 20:4-6 which reads: "And it came to pass, afore Isaiah was gone out into the middle court, that the word of the Lord came to him, saying, Turn again, and tell Hezekiah the captain of my people, Thus saith the Lord, the God of David thy father, I have heard thy prayer, I have seen thy tears: behold, I will heal thee: on the third day thou shalt go up unto the house of the Lord. And I will add unto thy days fifteen years; and I will deliver thee and this city out of the hand of the king of Assyria; and I will defend this city for mine own sake, and for my servant David's sake."

Today we are talking with Chris Sturdevant who recently returned from a trip in North Korea
Has you know North Korea is probably the most Secretive Country on the face of the planet and Chris had the chance to participate in an international Track meet, Visit the USS Pueblo and see other sights while there. I heard about Chris via Armando F. Sanchez’s series on Cold War Spying and could not pass up the chance to have this show.
Below is a Channel 4 Milwaukee news interview and provides context on Chris’s visit to North Korea.
By Steve Chamraz. CREATED Apr 24, 2015 - UPDATED: Apr 24, 2015
MILWAUKEE - It's one of the few places Americans supposedly cannot go, but Chris Sturdevant ran through the streets of North Korea earlier this month as a welcome tourist.
"The people of North Korea are very warm, they're very genuine, they are very welcoming," Sturdevant said of his brief trip to the capital city of Pyongyang.
The librarian and competitive runner ventured into the communist nation as part of a running tour group. Some ran in the Pyongyang marathon, Sturdevant raced the 10K, finishing second in his group.
