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.

We need your help now more than ever.

Independent media outlets and journalists in Russia are being increasingly targeted with “foreign agent” and “undesirable” labels, threatening the existence of the free press day by day.
