French daredevil rides bike off sheer cliff before parachuting into Alpine village

This is the incredible moment an extreme athlete from France rode off a sheer cliff on a bicyle - before parachuting down to safety.

Biker Vincent Martinod sheds the bike mid-fall but was able to make the descent into the valley in the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region by parachute.

Using a GoPro camera, Martinod was able to record his jump over the Alpine village of Magland.

A friend of his recorded the jump from another angle, allowing us to see just how long the daredevil fell before pulling his parachute.

This video was filmed on October 30 2017.
