Biking Video

I took this video holding my camera on the handlebar so there is some shake. The sound is true enough though - it was very windy on Sunday - and cold.

This is very good, though it sounds like you were on a skateboard. I wonder if there's an easy way to stick the camera onto your bike helmet.

It was my first try, holding it on my handlebars. I have already thought about ways to hard mount it on my bike or, like you said the helmet mount. But if you check your peripherals with that helmet mount it will jerk a lot as well.

Isn't the rider's body the bike's main vibration damper? That's why I think it might be worth mounting the cam on the hat. OTOH it looks like it should be very easy to mount it on the handlebars, using a hose clamp, some inner-tube material and screws. I'm a bit uneasy about the vibration but maybe I'll try it anyway.

I look around a lot while biking, though. Where naturally you may take a quick glance to the right or left to see something or look for traffic, if you are taping you would have to keep your head straight on. I like the camera mounted on the bike idea better, but you will have shake on every bump. Definitely trial and error.
