Above is my second attempt at making a cycling time lapse with the gopro camera. I used mode P1 this time to get a smoother look than what P2 produced. Any feedback please?

My P2 test can be viewed below -

What are you looking for with feedback? You put the camera on an interval shooting timer and hit go. No editing here, no lighting. Not sure what you're looking for as far as feedback goes.

If by smoother you would like to even out the movement of the bike, which is exaggerated a bit with the time-lapse, because there is more time between movement
of the handlebars, then you would have to stabilize the handlebars. One way would be to put the bike on a trailer/sled/dolly of some kind that you could push. That
could get the shot if you just want to get the shot for part of a narrative. Otherwise, you'd have to pick really straight paths and do an amazing job of riding upright
with no leaning or swaying.
