There are places all along the river to rent bicycles, but hiker is right. Yeouido would be the best place to go. My friend and I rented once and it felt like the bikes were going to fall apart. After that I pulled a rusty lespo roadstar out of some bushes, fixed it up, and gave it to him. It rode much better than the rental and it was free.
If you're looking for a bike for the entire time, I don't think you can get that. It's about 2000 won for 2 hours.
It's best to stay on the river bicycle roads in Korea. Drivers here have a real "me first" attitude. I ride to work on my bike using the sidewalks. For anywhere else I only use the rivers.
