Over 1,000 cyclists crossing Krymsky Bridge and heading towards the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour were captured by a Ruptly video agency drone, as they took part in the first ever nighttime parade on the streets of Moscow on Saturday night and into the early hours of Sunday morning. The parade happened between 23.00 and 02.00 local time (19.00 and 22.00 GMT). It was organized in a bid to support the development of cycling infrastructure and to promote road safety. The organizers say the route was approximately 20km (12 miles).
