Hi. I’m Thomas. I moved to South Korea in 2015. Since then, I married, had kids, and settled down in Ulsan, where all the Hyundai’s are built.

During business hours, I teach elementary school students. During personal business hours, I write, take photos, and ride a bike.

I’ve ridden all over Korea, in rain, snow, and yellow dust. Through it all, I took pictures and collected memories.

Korea by Bike allows me to turn my hobbies and experiences into something useful.

I hope this site can aid you in all your bicycle adventures.
