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".
Jared Dubin and Seth Partnow discuss the Kings' non-firing of George Karl and their leaky-ship organization, the merits and drawbacks of quickly cycling through coaches, the Knicks' firing of Derek Fisher, the progress of Phil Jackson's culture change in New York and where the Knicks might turn next before wrapping things up with some brief talk about Jimmy Butler's injury and the Eastern Conference playoff picture.

Guest Host David Corbett returns to speak with the incredible Catriona McPherson. About Catriona: A born swot, I finally left school at age thirty with a PhD in linguistics from Edinburgh University. Proper jobs have included banking (hopeless), library work in local studies and fine art (marvellous), and a short burst of academia (miserable). I'm now a full-time writer and hope never to have a proper job again. When not writing, I'm reading, gardening, cooking and baking, cycling in Davis, running through walnut orchards, getting to grips with this outlandish and enormous country (26 states visited so far) and practising an extreme form of Scotch thrift*, from eating home-grown food to dumpster-diving/skip-surfing for major appliances. *when "making a living" as a writer, thrift helps a lot. http://catrionamcpherson.com/. About David Corbett: Ballantine purchased David's first novel, The Devil's Redhead.His follow-up, Done for a Dime was also broadly acclaimed was named a New York Times Notable Book. His third novel was Blood of Paradise. David's short fiction has also been widely praised. http://davidcorbett.com .

The Floriana Wedding Dress Project
(Founder and Canadian Director)
The Floriana Wedding Dress Project opened the first “pay what you can” store in Port-au-Prince on March 28, 20105. Donated wedding, bridesmaid, grad dresses and accessories are rented or sold for whatever price the customer can afford. A second location was opened across the city by our team there. They opened it on my birthday this year – the best present I could ask for!
This little idea that my sister and I had (our goal was 10 dresses for the March 2015 trip) exploded into something so quickly it has just been amazing. We have over 200 wedding gowns and 425 bridesmaid dresses already given to us! Many of these are already in Haiti or have been packed up for the next container.
One of our goals is job creation for Haitian parents through sewing and up cycling projects. We will also plan to assist orphans transitioning out of care and into adulthood with jobs – there is a need for these young people to have employment, life skills and a way of supporting themselves
Some of our goals for the very near future on the Canadian end of things are to have an office with storage, an excellent website that makes it easy to navigate and contribute, and an annual fund raising event that's interesting, fun and somehow involves the wedding industry.
There is a special place in my heart for Haiti as my husband Jason and I were privileged to adopt a beautiful little child in 2010, following the devastating earthquake. This summer we celebrate our 21st Anniversary and are happy to say we enjoy each others company more than ever! We live in Burlington with our two internationally adopted daughters, Shantaya (from Malawi, age 11) and Divna (from Haiti, age 7).
Our guests this morning are Valerie James from Manhattan Village Shopping Center and Kim Ruggles of Kim Ruggle Events and we’re going to discuss the 2015 Manhattan Beach Chamber Holiday Mixer.

After her time there, Kim worked at the Beverly Hills Chamber of Commerce as the Program and Event Manager, where she planned networking mixers, award shows, the mayoral State of the City Address, product launches and seminars. It was her time with the chamber that cemented Kim’s desire to help companies large and small provide a branding experience to engage customers and grow their business. Kim founded her company in 2009 to follow her passion for creating extraordinary events and experiences. In 2013, Kim expanded her offerings to incorporate entertainment events, including wrap parties, premieres and red carpet events.
