 Budget tip: ride as slow as me and lots of things become stealthy. Bike, chain, tires. Everything except gasping for breath.

 How do they do audio for these edits? Really feels like there's a mic inside the tire or something.

 Zip tie a small microphone to the seatstay.

 Just a decent camera mic is fine and some cleaver editing when needed.
