Man breaks record for highest tightrope bike crossing

Daredevil Nik Wallenda has broken his own record for the highest tightrope crossing on a bicycle!

He rode his bike along a wire suspended around 80 metres above the ocean in the Bahamas in the Caribbean.

But it didn't stop there - he also walked a distance of around 600 metres along the tightrope, hoping to set another record. Guinness has yet to confirm it.

Hundreds of tourists and resort workers gathered to watch Nik's breathtaking stunts and you can catch some of the action right here.
