Bike Friday out of the suitcase in South Korea

What do you need to teach English in South Korea? A Bike Friday Pocket Expedition comes in handy for at least one teacher.

And he seems to have plenty of places to ride, including along a river in Seoul.

Now it’s very easy to build dedicated bicycle infrastructure that makes bicycling more dangerous. Maybe it’s a painted lane immediately adjacent to the opening doors of parked cars. Or a path separate from the road but designed without regard to the speeds bicycles can attain when going downhill.

But rivers and bicycle paths are a natural combination for one very important reason: their juxtaposition greatly reduces, and sometimes eliminates, the most likely spot for accidents: intersections.

And that seems to be the very happy situation in Seoul.

Plenty to see and read on this blog, whether you’re interested in cycling, South Korea or English as a Second Language (ESL).
