Travelling on a bicycle to your destination is a totally different experience from traveling on a motorbike, or in a car or bus. On a bicycle, you get to access more remote areas where tour buses and cars are not able to get to, plus enjoy the fresh air and natural environment too! Hence, the great concept of bicycle tours.
Also, with a growing awareness on the importance of environmental conservation and the need to reduce carbon footprints, cycling is becoming more popular, especially with the advent of the folding bike which can be easily transported and carried, on board a plane and train, respectively.
The Selangor Heritage on Wheels takes participants on bicycles to heritage sites in a fun and enjoyable, non-competitive, non-racing environment. It is a Tourism & Environment initiative by the Selangor State Government.
To get a feel of the event, here’s a slideshow to share. For the best viewing experience, do make sure your speakers are turned on!
