I'm planning a trip starting around mid-August (though I'm flexible on this) from Seoul to Busan via the 4 rivers cycle paths http://user.chollian.net/~boonstra/korea/sebu.htm and then across to Japan to Sakaiminato, Shimonoseki or Fukuoka. I haven't planned all aspects yet and I am wondering about heading further south too to the islands around Okinawa...
I do have some experience of cycling in Japan - I did a 3-month trip from Hokkaido to Kyushu in 2011 - and, though I do like cycling alone sometimes, it can get quite lonely so I'm wondering if there's anyone out there who would like to hook up with me for part or all of the tour.
I'll be setting off from the UK - provisionally around 19th August.
I'm a 51 year old friendly guy not a bike fanatic and not fit either, so I'll want to take the early stages slow and I have no interest in setting records - 60-100 kms a day is more than enough for me, and if a nice place presents itself then less.
Hope to hear from you...
