Seoul Metropolitan Government is receiving applications (up to 5,000 people) on a first-come-first-served basis for the 2013 Hi Seoul Bicycle Parade scheduled for June 16.
The 21km event will start at Gwanghwamun Square, pass through Seoul Station, Northern end of Hangangdaegyo (Bridge), and end in Peace Plaza at World Cup Park.
This year marks the 5th year of the annual event. The cyclists will bike along Gangbyeonbuk-ro through the span between Northern end of Hangangdaegyo (Bridge) and Seongsandaegyo (Bridge) (there are five more bridges between the two) without crossing the bridges. Riding a bike along the Hangang (River) with many other companions, while enjoying the early summer breeze, will surely be a pleasant experience.
Prior to the commencement of the event, bike repair service will be provided, and coaches will show you how to prepare your body before a long bike ride. The following special events will be held at the destination: bike accessory exhibit, display of bike stunts, performances by invited pop singers and songstresses, and lottery draw.
