Are there any bike rental possibilities in Tbilisi and surroundings? What are the rules and prices? Is it possible to buy an used bicycle, I mean something cheap that just is able to move for a week? How much could a bike like that cost?

  • As a side note, I've been to Tbilisi numerous times, the last time only about a month ago - and there are very few bicycles in the city. I think it's just not a safe method of transport. Once you go out of Tbilisi, to smaller towns, there, yes, I've seen a lot of bicycles.

Sure, it's possible.

Firstly, bike rental, either as part of a tour or on your own can be done from companies like Georiders:

Georiders offers mountain bike and bicycle tours in and around the Caucasus mountains, custom made tours for individuals and groups and bicycle rental in Tbilisi.

As for buying a bike, there are mixed comments online, but this thread on Lonely Planet about buying one - a few posts down show some possibilities:

Bicycle Shop in Tbilisi, Georgia is in Vake district, on Abuladze str.30

and

I found five shops in a row. See the following link for a map. It's not a fancy place, but if you're looking for repair, or a used bike, probably the right place to go. See this picture to get a sense of what you're in for.

If you're looking for a new mountain bike, you might check out xtreme shop, which has two locations in Tbilisi. Their website is http://xtreme.ge/.

Finally, there's this Facebook page: Bike Rental & Bike Share places in Tbilisi, Georgia.

    I'm not there anymore, I can't confirm the information, but it seems to be a good answer. Thank you. Oct 27 '14 at 14:16

I agree that there are not that many bicycles in the center of Tbilisi, but at the outskirts cycling is quite popular. There are some good spots for cycling too. Once I even saw a critical mass ride in the center.

Some bicycle shops I know: http://bicycle.ge/lang/2 https://www.facebook.com/bikehousegeo/

Hope this helps
