Sometimes called action, helmet or adventure cameras, bike cameras are small and can capture HD footage without weighing you down or being ungainly. 

Josh Ross

Josh hails from the Pacific Northwest but would prefer riding through the desert than the rain. He will happily talk for hours about the minutia of cycling tech but also has an understanding that most people just want things to work. He likes to document his rides and always takes an action camera with him to capture footage to edit and share and has used a wide range of cameras, so knows what works and what doesn't. 

Paul Grele

Paul reviews both bikes and equipment for Cycling Weekly and has 40 years of riding under his belt across a variety of disciplines including road riding, commuting, a self-supported Land's End to John o' Groats trip, XC mountain biking and several Polaris Challenge two-day events. Naturally for a reviewer he loves bike and kit design and has even fillet brazed a couple of framesets himself. He's out riding in all conditions, usually with an action camera strapped to his bike to capture his rides.
