Left Embankment of Mtkvari is one of the longest asphalt pavement cycling distances in city of Tbilisi - it stretches from Didube to Ortochala (passing Tbilisi Old Town). It is among the easiest routes as well. 

For today's cycling assignment I decided to use section Marjinashvili - Didube - Marjinashivli from Left Embankment of Mtkvari

Embankment of Mtkvari in Tbilisi is really cool place for riders (and not only), except sudden obstacles, like inappropriate parked cars, or superficially repairs. Left Embankment is cool by one more reason - it' s cool for photography  - you can get some cool Tbilisi architecture shots from here:
