I’ve seen a couple gorgeous films lately of couriers flying through traffic, narrowly avoiding cars and pedestrians, all filmed from a bicyclist’s perspective (example).

Most of these are shot from helmet cam, but there’s something cool about the perspective from a fixed bike mount as well. The latter is really easy to do on the cheap, and there are a couple Instructables that’ll show you how to build a secure mount for your video camera with just a buck or two or hardware.
