Cycling Hulu Langat

What’s the best way to spend a holiday? The misty hills of Hulu Langat in Selangor is a cycling haven for enthusiasts, and the only reason why anyone would be out of bed early on a holiday.

The small town in Hulu Langat of Selangor is usually sleepy and quiet, but come weekend or a mid week holiday, you will be surprised that the population rises two-fold for at least half of the day.

A bunch of friends from a cycling group in Setia Alam, ventured one hour away from their neighbourhood just to get their first taste of the misty hills. Get an early start by 7am for the best mystical effects of these glorious hills.

So we tagged along and put the Casio Exilim FR100 to the test for some great angles on cycling, and it didn’t disappoint!

We separated the camera and placed it on the tarmac for an awesome bottom-up view.. and hope the cyclists don’t ride into it instead. Just click on the screen to trigger the camera remotely, so you don’t have to bend down.

Although we forgot our selfie-stick, just holding up the lense with our hands was suffice to get some awesome top-down shots as the 16mm wide angle gives you a panoramic view.

We also spotted a newbie who put up a brave front on her maiden ride on her brand new roadbike, the Hasa R4. It was a bit of a challenge, but she looked like she was relishing it!

Once we reached the junctions, Casio’s wide angle was perfect to fit everyone in easily, such a breeze.

As the typical saying goes in this part of the world, “You know you’ve arrived when you’re gasping for breath,”.

My, doesn’t that take your breath away? Well, that’s a perfect excuse to stop for a selfie or two.  Or just stop to take photos anytime you’re tired and pretend to be a ‘tourist’ in your own country for awhile.

A perfect excuse to take touristy shots along the way.

Take photos with Casio without leaving your car

We also devised a creative way to take shots with the Casio Exilim FR100 without getting out of the car! Separate the lense and stick it into your side view mirror, and angle it outwards. With the wide angle lense, you get a pretty awesome shot!

Also perfect for rainy days, when you don’t feel like getting wet, and the camera is waterproof anyway.

Stick the Casio Exilim FR100’s lense into your side view mirror to take photos from inside your car!

As the cyclist enjoyed their morning on wheels with a little ‘fun between the legs’, we had fun behind the camera.
