Event Description

For New Riders:

beginner trails mountain biking day iguidekorea
Beginner-friendly trails
iGK’s experienced mountain bike guides will take you on a scenic and safe ride through gravel fire roads high up on Daejeon’s Bomun Mountain. The ride will focus on enjoying the scenery and the joy of riding in the forest rather than difficulty and intensity. Giant Bicycles Korea has generously offered high-end demo bikes which will be available to ride. If you have your own bike, bring it! If not, no problem. Giant Bicycles will be providing top of the line mountain bikes for demo. First-come, first-served on the demo bikes, but we will make sure everyone gets to ride one of these awesome bikes.

For Experienced Riders:

iGK’s guides will host an enduro race comprised of 3 different downhills, all easily accessible from the event location. These are 3 of the most exciting downhills in the Daejeon area. Together, they comprise 5.5km of pure downhill joy.
