Wallenda High-Wire Video

If you didn’t catch the record-breaking, high-rise, bicycle-riding derring-do of Nik Wallenda of the Flying Wallendas, fear not: through the miracle of YouTube, you can relive the moment.

The crossing, which took Wallenda across a 128-foot-long wire at a height of 235 feet, won the world record for “longest distance and greatest height by bicycle.” The cable was strung between two cranes and ended at the southeast corner of the Prudential Center.

The video from this morning’s Today Show coverage includes the nerve-wracking moment when Wallenda’s bicycle actually began to slide backward along the cable when he was just inches from his goal.
