So, on the first weekend of May a group of six of us saddled up and hit the road for a banter filled spin straight out to the coast for a nights camping and sunset watching. Our intrepid crew was: Laura Grobler, Zach Vanderplate, Will McDonald, Reagan Redd, Stef and me.

We amassed at our apartment on the University campus in Hongseong, where we work, at around 1pm on Saturday, sorted out our bikes and off we went.
It was a pure bohemian first-cycle of the spring, at a cruisey pace, along small tracks winding through paddy fields with great banter the whole time. We even found a pagoda tucked into the side of the road amongst the paddy fields that was calling out for a shady pit stop with a cold beer.
After a well deserved break, having committed to a reunion at the same pagoda doing the same thing 40 years from now, we jumped on our bikes and away we went.
The cycle and banter continued like this for the rest of the weekend and our flame was once again fully fuelled for more spins.
But I'm not gonna waffle any more. I think the pictures say it best...
