In 1980, The Dangerous Sports Club from England, a group of extreme sports pioneers who developed modern bungee jumping, jumped from the Clifton Suspension Bridge in Bristol, using an elastic cord. The group got arrested right after the act and images of the first jump quickly spread worldwide. Since then, literally millions of bungee jumps have been performed. One of the early bungee companies that still operates to this day is the Vertige Aventures in France. In 1986, the Vertige Aventures made their first ever bungee jump in France, a catalyst that launched European first bungee jumping center at Ponsonnas Bridge, Grenoble.
