Renting Bicycles
Printer-friendly version

Hi I am wondering if anyone knows of a place that you can rent bikes. I need a rather large bike and I don't think the free rental bikes will work.

Why don't you just buy one. They are cheap enough here. There are plenty of tall Koreans, so bikes for bigger people must exist.

Ah  OK then, I'm not sure about this, but I have a feeling that the bike shop near the beach in Haeundae may rent bikes. Given his location, I'm sure in the summer months that with all the peple visiting Busan that there must be a demand for it.

Take exit 3 from the subway and walk towards the beach , he's about 50 yards on your left.

Here is a street view on Naver maps. Click the 'X' in the top right corner to switch to map view.

The owner (if it's the same guy from a couple of years ago) speaks English, and if he's not there, the store workers will give him a call or tell you when he will be in the shop. If you can't rent there he might be your best bet to point you in the right direction.

Well, driving motorcycle without insurance may be dangerous since drivers here in korea is on GTA drive mode.  Besides, when you have an accident with korean car, there is possibility that the repair cost would be directly charged to you. So i want you to at least buy a cheapest insurance coverage to protect yourself. Also, National insurance one got from workplace wouldn't cover the injuries from driving it. 

One of my friend is running this website. He speaks quite fluent

So, there's the place in Haeundae, but is there anything closer to Nampo or Seomyeon for renting a bike, preferably a racing bike? 

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
