Man Rides a Bike on a Rope – level 2

16-08-2022 15:00

A man performed a stunt in the French Alps at an altitude of 2,700 metres. People hung a slackline between two mountains 112 metres high in the air.

The man tried to ride on a bike from one side to the other. He fell during his first try, but he wore a harness, so he got back up and tried again. This time, he was successful.

Difficult words: stunt (a dangerous action), slackline (a rope which is not tight), harness (security rope).

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