Man rides a bike on a rope - level 1

This happens in the French Alps. A rope is between two mountains. It is 112 metres in the air.

A man is on one of the mountains. He has a bike. He wants to bike to the other mountain.

He rides slowly on the rope, but he falls. He is OK. He wears a harness. He gets back up, and he tries again. This time, he is successful.

Difficult words: rope (a long piece of textile; line), harness (a security rope), successful (if you are successful, you do something).

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