Subject: Stuntman to cycle down wire

Written By: Philip Eno on 09/12/10 at 8:33 am

A Chinese man is bidding to make a new Guinness World Record by riding a bicycle along a thin wire.

Wang Jianguang will aim to complete the stunt at the end of the month when three 80-metre-long wires are stretched between two towers, 20 metres above the ground.

He will ride a bike on the middle wire, while being supported by two other bikes on two outside wires to move forward.

Wang said, "Riding 20 meters high, the wires will be swinging quite a lot due to the wind and the height. It'll be quite a challenge physically and mentally."

Last year, the 47-year-old postman from eastern China's Zhejiang Province cycled over 20 metres on beer bottles in only 19 seconds
