Hundreds of Bike enthusiasts gathered in Central Moscow despite freezing Cold to take part in a Winter Bike Parade.

It is the second time when Russian Bicycle Fans organised mass winter ride, but this year’s temperatures were more extreme than last year – minus 29 Celsius.

To keep warm before the start some bikers danced, others drank hot tea from traditional Russian Samovar.

The Parade participants had to cover a distance of 14 kilometres riding towards the Kremlin and back along the Moskva River.

The organisers of the Moscow Second Winter Bike Parade’s said their goal was to prove that winter is not an obstacle to bike riding and to promote the development of cycling infrastructure and road safety in Moscow.
