Bike Riding in Moscow: Not For the Faint-Hearted

This year, the annual bike parade advocating for better conditions for bike riders in Moscow was not allowed by the authorities.

Instead, the city government organized a festival that was more of a party than a demonstration for bike rights.

We took a ride with Valery Larionov, a bike activist, to see how safe and comfortable it is to ride around Moscow's city center.

Put on your helmet and enjoy the ride.
