Did you also try the HHT setting? That is what I would use in this situation.

I agree about the 50mm f/2 Nikkor. I have a 1969 copy which is very sharp.

Hmm, I hadn't thought of using the Twilight mode. I'm going to try to bike at night this week again, see what happens. Thanks for the reminder.

My only question would be... does it work well handheld? I know it's supposed to be for handheld photography, but when I think of multiple shots taken and then fused together, I'm terrified of slight movements that could make the resulting image blurrier...

Well, why not actually try it, before succumbing to terror? It accounts for slight movement. Also, rest your camera on or against your bike, a tree, a wall, anything to help stabilise it. HDR can also work well at stacking to minimise noise.
20sec exposure in black night, NEX-5 on wall.
