Thousands ride in Moscow summer bicycle parade

STORY: There are now over three million bicycles in Moscow, according to local government statistics.

Moscow's first cycling parade took place in 2011.

This year's parade took place months after Russia sent troops to Ukraine in February, calling it a "special operation" to demilitarize the country. Since then, cities have been bombed to rubble, thousands have been killed, and millions displaced.
