I’m gonna have to fill my stomach before I get on the rail bike. Today’s lunch is the chicken galbi(Dakgalbi), a dish that comes to mind when it comes to Chuncheon.

Makguksu(buckwheat noodles), a must-have food besides chicken ribs. And The highlight of Dakgalbi is fried rice. Add cheese and make Cheese fried rice.

I’m walking to ride a rail bike. I made a reservation in advance for the weekend. But if i can’t make it in time, my money will be in the air.

Whatever happens, we must make it in time.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to look around the park. I got here, I got a ticket, then i have only five minutes before boarding.

Our group got on a four-seat railbike. Gangchon Rail Bike here is ONLY manual. In other words, the fact that there is no machine help at all, I desperately need two strong legs.

It’s so much cooler than I thought. Because the beginning is downhill, the cool wind blows hard like a car that opens a window.

Besides, we don’t have much to do with the wheel, so let’s just leave ourselves to the laws of nature and enjoy the speed.

Then we hit the railbike in front of me. The brakes are only manual, so the rider should hold it themselves. But we took a picture a lot, played a lot and we miss the timing to do the brake. Sorry…

Now the descent is over. Let’s pedal slowly. But it’s good to have four of us on it. And We’re entering the tunnel. I feel cool from the beginning. And it’s actually cool.

I don’t want to go out because it’s cool, but I have to go out for the people behind us.

Another tunnel. It’s so nice to see a tunnel. It plays music and is cool, charming and fun.

I’m sweating now.
The total section of the rail bike is about 8 kilometers. It’s about six kilometers away by bike, and the rest by train. So we have to run six kilometers.

It was a summer when i ride this rail bike. So everything is Green and Blue. But in Korea, There are 4 distinct Season, Spring, Summer, Autumn and Winter.

At the Autumn, all these rice field will change as a bright gold color and at the winter, specially when it snows, it will change as a pure white color like frozen kingdom.

So i should come here at autumn and winter as well to see all the differences.

A starlight tunnel. It’s hard to take a picture. Some of the tunnel has a theme. Music flows from the big speakers and the lights shinning from the bottom to up.

Next to us, the Bukhangang River flows at a similar speed as ours.

Legs are pedaled, dance hard with hands, and scream with our mouths and enjoy.

We’ve already arrived at the intermediate station after playing hard. That’s too bad. I think I can ride a little more.

Now We are waiting for the romantic train. No, waiting for all the people behind. Four-wheel bike, two-wheel bike, When everyone arrives, the romantic train will come. At least wait 30 minutes.
