Where to stick your cam­era

1 Chest

Us­ing a chesty mount gives you some of the smoothest footage, from one of the best an­gles. Set­ting the cam­era to film your arms, han­dle­bar and the trail ahead will give you great con­text, help­ing you to spot when you’re not do­ing it right.

2 Hel­met

This po­si­tion can po­ten­tially give you a great view of the trail ahead and is pretty sta­ble. Try not to an­gle the cam­era too low though, or you’ll just film the floor and your hel­met peak.

3 Bi ke

Bike-mount­ing a cam­era can work well or can be a dis­as­ter. Vi­bra­tion will ruin a lot of footage, es­pe­cially on rougher trails. But you can also cap­ture parts of your body, bike and the trail that you wouldn’t nor­mally see.


Get your mate to film you rid­ing – the third-per­son per­spec­tive is great for watch­ing what’s re­ally hap­pen­ing. Re­mem­ber that most ac­tion cam­eras have wide-an­gle lenses, so you’ll need to per­suade them to get mega-close for the best footage.
