Fixed Gear Cycling – Berlin vs Moscow

Berlin is a pretty weird city, it’s really open, it’s full of graffiti, people [openly] smoke weed, but you ride a bike with no brakes you get a fine.

In this video, We Love Cycling take a look at the comparisons of fixed gear cycling in the capitals, Berlin and Moscow. Potentially at it’s peak of popularity it would seem that every other bike in Berlin is a fixed gear or single speed, the video takes a look at the challenges messengers face in Berlin, the liveliness of the roads and the history of where it began. You can watch part two that focuses more on the Moscow scene here.
