you probably have water in the brake housings. use WD-40, preferably in a warm place, in the brake housing.
substitute lube with WD-40, which displaces water and shifter with brake http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b080ppT7D1g
if they're really rusted, then it's probably better to just replace the cables all together.
