Question about Nikon Coolpix 4800 Digital Camera
Most likely the problem is "Camera shake". This just means that being in the dark, the camera shutter speed is long enough that the natural shake of your hands make the picture blurry.
You've got a couple options. The easiest is to find a nearby object and use it to steady your hand as you take the picture. You can also get a tripod and use the time delay release on the camera. This will let you push the button (which shakes the camera) and then step back before it actually takes the picture.
If you're shooting fairly bright LED's on the bike, you also might go into manual mode on the camera and experiment with shorter shutter speeds. Most people can use a speed of 1/60 without too much blur, so start with that and move to shorter speeds (maybe 1/100 or less). With the manual speed, you may get enough light from the LED's to make a good picture.
If this doesn't work for you, post a comment and I'll check back every few days and give some more ideas. Your camera may have some other ways to work through this. Rear curtain flash would be the best, but I don't think it has it....
