President Lee spoke of the need to promote the use of bicycles in our daily lives on Monday. The president said in his biweekly radio address that the government plans to build more bike paths around the country to make it easier and safer for people to use bicycles as their primary mode of transportation.
He also said a project to refurbish the nation's four major rivers, set to be completed in 2012, will include 2,000 km of bike paths linking the entire country.
Lee pointed out that Korea now imports most of its bicycles and called for the development of hybrid models that will meet future domestic and overseas demand.
