Daegu Bike Festival, May Edition!

2012's third Bike Festival is just around the corner.  On Saturdya, May 26th, come join Ecobike, the Council for Local Agenda 21, and hundreds of other Daegu bike acifionados of all varieties for a little jaunt around Buk-gu and Chimsan. 

Event schedule:
3:30-4:00 Registration and distribution of raffle tickets
4:00-4:30 Opening ceremony
4:30-5:30 Ride (Just under 8km)
5:30-6:00 Closing ceremony and raffle

Cyclists of all ages, nationalities, and level of interest and dedication are welcome to participate.   The event is free, but if you want a raffle ticket, head over to the official event page at, click the orange 신청 (apply) button, and fill in your name, website nickname, phone number, and email address.  Prizes generally include gift certificates, electronics, bike gear, and even bicycles!  DBF events are great chances to learn the roads, see new scenery, develop cycle confidence, meet other cyclists, encounter odd bikes, stick it to the man, and/or wear spandex in public.  There's something for everyone!

We'll be starting from the North District Office.  To get there, head north from Jungangno subway station towards Daegu Station.  Go under the cobblestone underpass next to Daegu Station, then continue straight until HomePlus. Turn left at the 3-way intersection on the far side of HomePlus, then go straight for about 1km.  Buk-gu Cheong (the north district office) will be on your right, not too far after Emart.  If you find yourself at 원대 Quintuple Intersection, double back! 

You can also plug the following into googlemaps.

Oh, and if you need a bike, you can borrow one from Myeongdeok station (along with several others aroun town) for free.  All you need is your passport, or maybe foreigner ID card.

Hope to see you there!
