My Jeju friends and I got a long weekend for the Korean Memorial Day and wanted to take the chance to see the island: cycle style. On Friday morning, four of us packed light bags and began our 80-ish mile journey from Seogwipo-si in the south to Jeju-si in the north. It was a beautiful (albeit extremely humid) summer day, and we had a fantastic time cruising and stopping for random swims in the sea. Although it was difficult, the physical challenge was worth the aesthetic reward: this was the first time in my seven months on this tiny island that I’ve traveled to the northeast! With minimal inclines and countless spots for a much-needed refreshing dip, this was one of my favorite Jeju adventures.
