Vice News — March 05, 2020 08:22:19A video of a young British man riding his bike and climbing up a bungee is set to go viral, with its caption being: “Bungee jumping in the middle of the night?
The young man, who goes by the name Roo, is the first to ride a bike with a bungee, a device that allows a rider to leap high above the ground.
Roo says he first saw the bungee jump on YouTube when he was a teenager and was “just thrilled to see something that would get people out of bed at 5 o’clock.”
He says he is currently looking for a team of volunteers to jump him up at a bungy jump at a pub in Leeds.
Roooo says he will jump with a group of people to raise awareness about bungee jumping and how to safely jump from a bungie in a bun, and is looking for people to help him.
He says it is about the people in the world, and how they are able to jump from the bungees they use to jump, to the bunges they jump from, or to jump higher than a bunger.ROO said he plans to use the bungie jump to raise money for his charity Bungee Jumping UK, and has also started a petition on Change.org to get the word out about bungeebos, saying they are a fun and safe way to jump and are “more fun than bungee jumps.”
Roo’s bungee-jump video has been viewed more than 2.5 million times and has been featured in several publications.
