Where to stick your camera
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.
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.

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.
