challenge - opportunity to push my limits with green nature
2019 TEAMAX ADVENTURE completed new route for the first time.
Blue Road is a bike journey from Busan to DMZ along East coastal bike path to
discover Korea's blue ocean view, fishing villages, sea food, rocky formation.
Our team had to think about next level for those who
completed Seoul to Busan Bike Tour. So Blue Road is much longer and needs advanced
level of riding.
Day 1 Busan – Ulsan
We enjoyed Busan`s spectacular night view and met our group next
day in the sunny morning.
ready for a new challenge)
As soon as we started we rode first uphill. Slope was pretty steep but
not difficult to climb. On the top of uphill we saw amazing seascapes of Haeundae, that made us forget we`re
uphill. Good weather, good mood!)
(Barbecue restores strength. Literary :)
Now time to go to Ganjeolgot. Ganjeolgot is
a place where you can see the first sunrise of the year, earlier than anywhere
else in Korea
Really… Whatever the camera, it doesn't do justice to
the beauty of this place.
（Rice field on the
route. Not only ocean!）
What a wonderful harmony of blue sky, green trees and yellow rice
fields! I wanna remember this moment forever.
First day distance was not so long. It was time to enjoy sea view and
to get used to ride. It`s the only way to ride well until last trip day.
Day 2 Ulsan-Gyeongju
Today`s route is not so long but there are two uphills waiting us as challenge
day. Unfortunately, rain was starting so riding going to be tough.

after first uphill!)
It was rainy cold day. We saw a harbor coffee shop as soon as we start
thinking about a cup of hot drink. While drinking coffee, we saw through the window
huge waves and felt the power of nature.
(Everybody is ready for second uphill now)
（Almost there! You can do it! ）
（Rest stop in Gyeongju）
At the rest-stop near Gyeongju
we got the feeling that it is real museum without walls filled of culture
treasures! It was the capital of the ancient kingdom for close to one thousand
years. After photo-time, we moved to Hwangnamguan Hotel.
Hanok Village & Hotel. Don`t forget to do stretching after riding!)
In Gyeongju we passed royal tombs, Cheomseongdae observatory and other ancient
heritages. I was really wondering how people lived here thousand year ago. What
if they saw this city now?...
Day 3 Gyeongju-Yeongdeok
Early morning in Gyeongju is calm and peaceful.
（We ready to ride to Yeongdeok!）
The road went along the Hyeongsanriver
and led us to Pohang. The world's largest steel manufacturing company POSCO
is located here. So we saw plenty of steelmaking plants.
that plants rebuilt South Korea`s ravaged economy after war. What was the
next step for economy`s growth in future?
On the way to Pohang so many interesting place we saw – every time we
stopped and take a photo.
（Lunch in Seaview
restaurant, Jokbal - pig`s
always delicious. Due to beach view lunch was tastier!
The way to Yeongdeok after lunch
Finally we arrived at Yeongdeok. The big crab in the background is
greeting us. :)
