Bike + Subway: A Great Way to Travel Around
On weekends and holidays, bikes are allowed to be brought along via Seoul subways. Today...after biking along the river, we decided to go home by subway.
Which means that we got to bring along our bikes into the subways. Yup...it's Friday...but it happened to be a national holiday celebrating Hangeul Day.
So...four of us took the first compartment where bikes are allowed to be brought in.
It's not jammed packed. ..thankfully. so we had enough space to put our bikes.
And....then..the most challenging part was carrying our bikes up.and down the stairs. Gee.......we're not supposed to take elevator and escalators!!
But....we got to.pull our bikes up.and down via a specially designed bike track.
Still...it's a struggle for me....since I got to manage all bikes.....since not all stations are equipped with bike-friendly facilities.
Thank God....we decided to take subways...otherwise...we'd. ..
