The Western Routes is a collections of four different certification paths on the western side of Korea.
The Ocheon Bike Path and Geumgang Bike Path flow westward from the Saejae Bike Path path.
The Ocheon and Geumgang paths touch. But, their start and end points don’t match up. The Geumgang Path ends in the city of Gunsan, at the Yellow Sea.
The Seomjingang and Yeongsangang Bike Paths end (or start) at the bottom of the peninsula. In the north, twenty kilometers separate their paths.
The Ocheon Bike Path is the shortest (101.8 km). East-to-west, a mountain and gravity aids your ride. A casual biker could finish the course in a day and a half.
If you approach the path from the west, you’ll be climbing. Budget two days.
Geumgang is the longest of the western paths (134.4 km). Similar to the Ocheon path, gravity speeds you west towards the Yellow Sea. Two days of easy riding will complete the course.
If you approach from the east, a quicker pace will finish in two days. An easy-going ride might bring you to just over a two days.
The Seomjingang (142.8 km) and Yeongsangang (134.4 km) each follow rivers over flat terrain. For sightseeing, expect to ride at least two days. Bringing your A-game, you can conquer the paths in a day and a half.
