Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

GoPro and Camelbak

I am contemplating buying a GoPro to do some video segments of my rides. On my long rides I use a Camelbak and may mount the GoPro on one of the shoulder straps. Anyone familiar with using a GoPro and different places to mount it?

Thanks

I would expect you'd get too much shake from that location. Helmet, bars, and fork are all good places depending on the effect you're going for.

I personally use and prefer the perspective of Chesty on bike, kayak, and skis. But when I cycle with it, I'm on a 'bent. Not sure if it would work with a race riding position

When on my road bikes I only have it on my helmet. When mountain biking, I have it mounted on different spots depending on what my cup of tea is on that ride: helmet, chest, top of stem, under downtube,etc.etc.
