Tiny tripod for iPhone 12 Pro Max for cycling trips?

For reasons mostly unrelated to photography I am now a happy owner of iPhone 12 Pro super hyper Max Turbo.

I cycle a lot and turns out that a good smartphone camera is the best minimalistic setup for photography and iP12PMax is a good as it gets camera-wise...

Lots of my shots end up being shot from the hand - nature/ landscape only or the bicycle with a background.

Ideally I'd like to get more creative with some shots and I think tripod+ a remote is a good solution for some interesting angles and more varied photography.

JOBY GripTight PRO is looking good, but just so you know, 360grams is about half the weight of a tent or the weight of a hammock - i.e. a sizeable portion of my bike packing budget.

I might still go for it, but just want to see if there are alternatives, ideally even more lightweight (but stable as a tripod).

GorillaPod would be even more versatile, but even more bulky and from my use with RX100, I've always found it time consuming to level...

I'b also considering no tripod at all - perhaps I'll just use a wooden stick to prop the phone in the right position, but I a good tripod + remote like the one above I think does give me more freedom to shoot better angles etc..
