Nice track for Cross-country training. This track offers several levels of difficulty uphill and downhill. Fire-truck ways in the mountain, single-tracks, rocks, +++

    Hi Kai,

    With the rain of yesterday, this track is not going to be very pleasant but we can go on the 5km loop I posted too. This track should be ok even after the rain.
    Cheers,

    Romain

    I just moved to Okpo last week, and want to ride as soon as my bike arrives from Houston. I see you have 4 trails posted, thanks for your willingness to share your findings!

    BTW what makes this trail "very difficult"?

  • Chadle Sep 29, 2011

    I will be going to Okpo in a few weeks. Should be working there for a few months. I am bringing my mtn bike with me. Hoping to check out these trails and ride with you guys. I am also from Houston.

    Hi Chadle,

    Please join us, we ride every weekend: Saturday or Sunday or both. We have just started track survey with one friend; we are looking for easier trails in order to get more people coming with us.

    BenJ,
    I do not know if you are still around. Join us too if you can. I have a new phone number: 010 9221 2206

    Cheers Guys!

    I am still around, and I have been looking at this trail for a while now...I just don't want to have to ride up Highway 14, and I can't drive there without a shuttle.

    The trail that I have from High School to Daegumsan isn't too bad for beginners.

    Hey guys, I’m also from Houston. I will be moving to Okpo for about six month. Here back home I do a lot of road bike rides and race. Will be taking my road training bike with me, and will like to do some MTB riding also, if I can find a decent bike over there. I will love to join all of you to train. I like running and running trails also.
    Please e-mail me with some feedback an advice on anything that I should know or take that is not available there: [email protected]
    Thank you all!

    Ed78, your email address doesn't work. Post on here when you arrive, and we'll hook up to try a few mountain trails around here with the rest of the guys.

    Hi Ed,

    We have a FB group too called: Geoje MTB.

    If you want to run in the mountain you can join Koje-Do Hash House Harriers: one run every 2 weeks. I am part of it.

    There are 3 bikes suppliers here selling GIANT, TREK, SCOTT and ELFAMA (not bad at all!). No worries you can find your MTB here.

    Road bike: ok where traffic is light but you must like going up and down! There is no flat place over here...

    Cheers,

    Romain

    Anyone who wishes to go riding please give me a ring at 010-9522-3620 or at [email protected]

    cheers,
    Rod
