Montrealers bike in -25 C to promote winter cycling
Hundreds bike on city streets as part of 3rd annual Vélo sous zéro
A group of dedicated cyclists took to the streets Sunday in Montreal for the third annual Vélo sous zéro.
Hundreds of cyclists braced the cold snap for a 17-kilometre bike ride across the city to promote year-round cycling.
"It may not be your thing but people are finding it fun and enjoyable and maybe give it a try before you judge," Vélo Québec's Magali Bebronne said.
Vélo Québec had 800 registrations but says the turnout was lower due to the frigid winter temperature dipping low to -25 C.
