An unusual trip--North Korea

Hey guys,
we, two Germans, are actually riding the world and reached Ulan Bataar, Mongolia. We are heading towards Vladivostok and plan to enter North Korea. Does anyone know or has contacts to get this vision done?
Travel agencies and the embassy lead to no results. Entry only without the bikes and via China.
Any help or contact is appreciated!

Hate to sound negative, but foreign bikes in North Korea, I think that´s just not gonna happen anytime soon. Without the bikes, and on a pre-arranged tour, then it seems possible, but you´re still not allowed to travel freely in the country.

Peter and Kay Forwood have visited North Korea by bike. Maybe you can find help and information there.

Technically, yes. But only a very short distance inside the country, and not one meter without strict government control... and to even do that they needed some pretty special arrangements to succeed. (I do take my hat off for the Forwoods amazing adventures in general.)
