1. Please introduce yourself. Where and what kind of work do you do?

Hello, I’m Marcus and I’m probably riding my bike. I’m from the UK but I’ve been living and working in South Korea on and off for a total of about seven years.

2. What kind of bikes do you have? By what standards did you choose them?

I’m a huge fan of steel bikes with steel forks, wide tires and the capability of carrying things. My favourite bicycle brand is Rivendell Bicycle Works. They build lovely, lugged, steel bicycles that are beautiful and practical at the same time. I like them so much that I have three.

3. I ride my bike everywhere every day. What is so good about bicycles?

Riding a bike gives me a sense of freedom. I’d rather be out in the open on my bike than inside a car. On a bicycle, you feel so much more in tune with what’s around you. Also, it’s amazing to get around the city so effectively powered by the engine of just the human body.

4. When is the happiest time to ride a bike? What path, season, and weather and circumstances do you like to ride a bike?

Basically, anytime riding a bike is happy. Even if it’s just a few minutes a day, it’s the best part of my day. My favourite season to ride depends on which country I’m in. At home in the UK, summer is by far the best. It’s usually sunny and dry. In Korea, May and October have similar weather to British summer, so those are my favourites.

5. Where is the joy of riding a bike in Korea?

There is joy in café rides and exploring the alleyways of Seoul. Additionally, when I have the time, I love to get out of the city and explore the countryside.

6. Please introduce me to some of your favorite cafes on your bike. What made you like it and go there often?

Of course, HBC Coffee is a favourite because my friends run it and there are always some cool bikes outside. Then my top two for the flavour of coffee are, Dark Edition in Yeonhui and Travertine in Yongsan.

7. What kind of coffee do you like? What kind of coffee do you like? I wonder how you feel when you drink that kind of coffee.

In the colder months, I prefer a milk coffee, like a flat white or a Cortado. Something warm with strong coffee taste and less milk than a latte. In the summer, I love it clean, single origin, filter iced coffee. The deliciousness just puts a smile on my face and the caffeine wakes me up.

8. If there is anything you would like to try riding a bike, please let me know. Where, how, and with whom would you like to go? Why did you think so?

If I ever move back to Europe is my, dream is to have an Omnium cargo bike. Shuttling my future kids around on the bike and continuing to live car free.
