From July 12th to July 18th, me and my buddy Don toured the length of the Korean peninsula from our southern hometown of Busan to the northern metropolis of Seoul along what is known as the 4 Rivers Trail. Over the course of a little over six days, three of which included riding in the pouring rain with the rest in the hot sun, we trekked mostly-paved terrain to see parts of Korea you could only see on two wheels.

“You end up exhausted and spent, but later, in retrospect, you realize what it all was for. The parts fall into place, and you can see the whole picture and finally understand the role each individual part plays. The dawn comes, the sky grows light, and the colors and shapes of the roofs of houses, which you could only glimpse vaguely before, come into focus.”
