A cycling story by Fabulous Outdoors:
“We often get asked Why We Cycle?

Cycling Up Mountains at Sunset
I thought I’d never see myself on a bike..
but I gave it a try …and it’s so much more!
It’s a journey, a travel experience..and on every ride there’s a new one.
It’s what you see, and how you perceive it.. you are outdoors with nature
and you’re taking in all it’s magical beauty..
the expansive landscapes, the small towns and villages..
the smell of the trees as you cycle throgh woodlands and forests..
the stunning mountains, that seem so big and far away.. and yet so close.
It’s you and your bike, feeling part of nature..
feeling happy and alive.
Somehow it feels like all the senses of your body are awakening,
to be part of this wonderland, and you feel like there’s a big world out there
waiting for you, and your bike, to go out.. to discover it all..
and to enjoy!
LIFE.. It’s Fabulous Outdoors!

Paris Roubaix 2015 Cycling Classic Tours La Fuga Travel by @fabulouSport http://www.fabulousport.co.uk With this cycling tour we went to ride the cycling sportive Paris-Roubaix-Challenge and stayed to watch the pro race the following day. A great experience for the amateurs, riding the cobbles in wet conditions was a real challenge, then a beautiful sunny day for the professional cyclists which was also good to watch it properly and to take videos and photos.

Most recent DSLR cameras include a video function to shoot and record films.
One of the aspects to be considered for filming with a DSLR camera is that most standard kit lenses don’t have the IS (Image Stabilisation), therefore if you film while moving, for example whilst walking or cycling, you’ll get a very shaky and blurry video.


We can still get great results out of our DSLR videos, avoiding common filming mistakes and by considering the following aspects:
– Using a tripod as much as possible, as without IS (Image Stabilisation), any movement of the camera, will result in a non pleasant and shaky video to watch.
– Use Manual Focus to get a more professional look to your video, focusing in and out to draw the vewer’s attention from further subjects to closer ones, or vice versa.
– Trying not to zoom in and out too much, and as slowly and smoothly as possible.
– Panning only with the camera on a tripod, or trying to be as level as possible and moving very smoothly.
