DMZ bicycle tour, anyone ?

Following the creation of new bicycle roads along the Demilitarized Zone* and a first trial last month**, Gyeonggi Tourism Organization is organizing bike tours for tourists, starting this month.

Every fourth Sunday (already fully booked for the first edition this May), a 'peloton' of up to 300 will ride a 15 km loop around the Imjin Pavillion. Riders won't actually enter the DMZ but follow the river / Civilian Control Line, and cross the Unification Bridge on their way to Tongilchon Unification Village.

The course is expected to be extended to 25 km, and organized twice a month.

Fee : KRW 10,000 per person.
