Two men ride bicycles in Brussels. They crash their bicycles many times. They crash into things in the street. They do this on purpose. They do this to make a video.

They think that Brussels is not safe for people who ride bicycles. They think that other cities in Europe are safe.

The men put the video on the Internet. They do this on February 11th. Around 100,000 people watch the video. Many people like it.

Difficult words: crash (to hit into something), on purpose (to do something because you want to do it).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Do you that think this video was a good idea?
