LONDON, Oct 5 (Reuters) - Extreme sports rider Travis Pastrana performed a backflip motorcycle jump over a 75-foot gap between two barges floating on London's river Thames on Thursday, 11 years after the last rider who tried the stunt suffered serious injury.

Set against the backdrop of London's O2 arena, Pastrana had only 150 feet to accelerate to takeoff speed before jumping, with only 36 feet to come to a stop before he would have fallen into the river.

The vessels used in the attempt were fitted with a steep ramp for the rider's take-off and a more gently inclined one for him to land on.

The Thames is a major river flowing through southern England. While best known because its lower reaches flow through central London , the river flows through several other towns and cities, including Oxford, Reading,Windsor and Berkshire.

The river gives its name to the (Wikipedia page Thames Valley ), a region of England centred around the river between Oxford and West London , the Thames Gateway, the area centred around the tidal Thames, and the Thames Estuary to the east of London.

The Thames has a length of 215 miles (346 km). Its usually quoted source is at Thames Head (at grid reference ST980994), about a mile north of the village of Kemble and near the town of Cirencester, in the Cotswolds. However, Seven Springs near Cheltenham, where the river Churn rises, is also sometimes quoted as the Thames' source, as this location is furthest from the mouth both in distance along its course and as the crow flies and adds some 14 miles (22 km) to the length. The springs at Seven Springs also flow throughout the year, while those at Thames Head are only seasonal.

The following table gives the distance between the standard water level and the highest point of bridges over the River Thames.

These distances are approximate. Remember that river levels fluctuate. Be aware of any temporary closures or restrictions on the river.

Sometimes, parts of the River Thames between Cricklade and Inglesham are only navigable by small boats. Below Lechlade the navigation channel is normally available for boats of the following approximate drafts:
