Bike-sharing has arrived in Tbilisi, it seems.

A stunt organised by Tbilisi City Hall brought Santas on bikes to the short new cycle track on Pekini Avenue.

Basic Skateboard Park / BMX track in Tbilisi.

The only bit of official cycle parking I saw in Tbilisi.

Curious cycle marking in front of Tbilisi Central Station. If it was pointing to any cycle parking I didn't spot any.

This is Tbilisi's main avenue, this construction project has been going on for years, and pedestrians have to walk in the street without any signs or barriers - shocking!

This could be improved as a cut-through allowing cyclists to avoid Freedom Square in Tbilisi (westbound only).

Missed opportunity for a riverside route behind the new Public Service Hall, Tbilisi - though admittedly there'd have to be either a light-controlled crossing of the riverside highway here or a ramp up to the Baratashvilis Bridge.

Missed opportunity for a riverside route behind the new Public Service Hall, Tbilisi - because informal parking for cars (in addition to the large car park) is more important.

It'd be nice to think that a cycle route might be provided through the Rikhe Park - but I doubt it.

Can you see the cycle access to the bridge and along the river? No - because it doesn't exist.

An electric vehicle charging point - the only one I've seen in Georgia.

Advertising for mineral water, Georgia.

Whoops - whoever's in charge of street signs hasn't realised that this end of Davit Agmashenebelis Avenue in Tbilisi has been pedestrianised.

Two sets of bollards on the newly pedestrianised section of Davit Agmashenebelis Avenue in Tbilisi. No indication whether cycling is allowed or encouraged.

A short stretch of Davit Agmashenebelis Avenue in Tbilisi has been pedestrianised. No indication whether cycling is allowed or encouraged, but drivers will block the route anyway.

Wheeling channels on a Tbilisi footbridge - what a surprise!

More Tbilisi roadworks - no signs or diversions, just another place to park.

Poor planning - it was more important to create an iconic statement of a bridge than to make it a useful well-connected route for cyclists, or even pedestrians.

Pedestrianisation in Tbilisi

A rare cyclist on a pedestrianised street in Tbilisi

Start of a genuine pedestrianised street in the heart of tourist Tbilisi.

It takes more than a bit of roadworks to stop Tbilisi drivers from parking.

A road closure is just a new opportunity for car parking - no thought for cyclist (etc) passage.

A footway has finally been installed here (and a flyover has been built over the ruins to the left) - see #62794. A small step forward.

I bet he doesn't have a disabled permit (do they even exist?) but in any case it's a poorly designed start to a busy pedestrianised street.

A few groups of cycle stands (which don't support bikes properly) are appearing in Tbilisi - here behind the National Gallery of Georgia

Police car randomly obstructng the bus (and bike??) contraflow on David Agmashenebelis Avenue, Tbilisi. Yes, police cars have red and blue lights flashing at all times - which totally undermines their role as emergency lights.

Plenty of space for riverside cycle routes - but no, they have to have 2 x 3-lane highways on each side.

There are a lot of these new automated barriers in Tbilisi protecting residents' parking spaces - replacing chains with padlocks which were often left undone. They leave plenty of space for pedestrians, bikes, wheelchairs etc.

Bikes for sale, Tbilisi (I don't think I'd really call it a bike shop)

Contraflow for buses (and bikes??) on David Agmashenenbelis Avenue, Tbilisi

Proper bollards to keep traffic out of the courtyard of the Fabrika hostel/arts centre, Tbilisi

Cycle parking at the Fabrika hostel and arts centre, Tbilisi

A very rare sight in Georgia - a bike on a car.

It'd be nice to think that a cycle route might be provided through the Rikhe Park - but I doubt it.

Total failure to connect to Tbilisi Central station, even for pedestrians.

Underpass beneath the railway near Tbilisi Central station - nicely sloped at the other end, but a steep ramp here.

Crossing on the new off-road cycle track along Pekini (Peking) Ave, Tbilisi - just using regular pedestrian lights.

No attempt to integrate the crossing with the new off-road cycle track along Pekini (Peking) Ave, Tbilisi

The new off-road cycle track along Pekini (Peking) Ave, Tbilisi (with typical marshrutka minibuses).

Start/end of the new off-road cycle track along Pekini (Peking) Ave, Tbilisi

Remarkably long cycle stands at the National Center for Disease Control and Public Health - cycle parking is so rare in Tbilisi that any is worth recording.

Where now? The end of the route between the two carriageways of Tamarashvili St, Tbilisi. In fact you'd use the pedestrian crossings to the left and right.

The new Vera valley highway in Tbilisi - I didn't expect cycle facilities, in fact I'm surprised there's even a footway.

The only problem with the path between the two road carriageways is that cyclists have to get through a petrol station.

Little-used path between two carriageways - no reason not to use it for cycling too.

No Cycling past the playground in Vake Park, Tbilisi

Red, white and blue cycle stands at the French school, Tbilisi

Shared-use path in Vake Park, Tbilisi

Track used by mountain bikes in Vake Park, Tbilisi

Former road into Vake Park, Tbilisi, usable by mountain bikes.

No bikes allowed in Tbilisi's open-air Ethnographic Musem - a shame for some less-able people, as it's pretty big.

Asphalt loop around Kus Tba (Turtle Lake), Tbilisi.

There's almost no cycle parking in Tbilisi, but I found these rather useless new stands at Kus Tba (Turtle Lake)

Cyclist on the road up to Kus Tba (Turtle Lake), Tbilisi

Bike rack on the (tiny) cable-car up to Kus Tba (Turtle Lake), Tbilisi

The Kus Tba (Turtle Lake) cable-car in Tbilisi is working again, and it carries bikes! Though it's only 3km on an asphalt road anyway so I don't know why people wouldn't ride up.

Good new mountain bikes for rent at Tbilisi's Mediotheka, of all places.

Odd how, even though there's almost no cycling in Tbilisi, a bike is still seen as a good sales tool.

Cut-through in Tbilisi (with ramp)

No cycles allowed in Mtatsminda Park, Tbilisi

Vaclav Havel and cycle stands at the Institute of Physics, Tbilisi

Road works in Tbilisi - no signs, no barriers, just vehicles pushing their way through in both directions.

End of pedestrian zone in the old town of Tbilisi - these cars and the ones blocking them in probably all belong to the Patriarchate of Georgia.

Campaigning for cycling (and more against excessive car use and anti-social parking) in Tbilisi, Georgia - using photo www.cyclestreets.net/location/62861/ See also www.georgiatoday.ge/article_details.php?id=12968

The road gets a bit narrower here, so let's all just park on the footway - illegal in Georgia but totally unenforced and normal.

Cut-through in need of improvement, Tbilisi.

A shame - no cycling permitted on this path in Vake Park, Tbilisi.

Excellent! Cycling permitted on this path in Vake Park, Tbilisi.

Excellent! Cycling permitted on this path in Vake Park, Tbilisi.

Step-free access to underpass taped off - probably a bit slippery.

A couple of major roads in Tbilisi have these bus contraflow lanes - I don't think anyone knows whether cycles are permitted in them, but I doubt if they'd be welcome.

Shame - this park could be a handy route to a couple of bridges over the Mtkvari river.

Parking attendant and badly parked car - the driver is actually on the phone, but the effect is the same.

The traffic on Tbilisi's main axis, Rustaveli Avenue, is now so constant and there are no light-controlled crossings, so that it is now obligatory to use these few underpasses - the wheelchair lift is a surprise, but it's still little use t ... [more]

This is what happens when you think that pedestrianisation just means closing off one end of the street and a fancy surface without doing anything to control access or parking.

Pedestrianised zone in the old town of Tbilisi - no particular provision for cycling.

The downhill carriageway has been removed from over the medieval Digomi Gate - now pedestrians are walking in the road and downhill traffic (buses especially) have to make a tedious backstreets detour - so now a flyover seems to be proposed ... [more]

Missed opportunity for cycle access through the road closure (though drivers would somehow have to be prevented from parking across it).

Two cars parked in the space for one car - what's not to like?

A new footbridge with guttering for buggies and bikes - but transport policy in Tbilisi is all about allowing cars to flow freely.

A very rare sight in Tbilisi (and clearly no-one knows what it's for) - cycle stands at the Institute of Physics.

Cycle space (I suppose) on this rather useless old train (just two a day) from Tbilisi to the airport.

Start of mountain-bike route on the edge of Tbilisi - shame the leaflet is only in Georgian!
