Look no further, you've found what you are looking for. American Bicycle...

Look no further, you've found what you are looking for. American Bicycle Rental is a local, family owned business - we are not a national chain. Bike Rental is our business - we strive to give our customers the best possible bicycling experience that money can buy. We provide helmets, locks, baskets, lights for night riding and the best cycling map in the city for FREE! We offer the highest quality, most reliable bike rentals in New Orleans - check out our reviews across the web and see for yourself. There are cheaper rentals in town but as the old saying goes, you get what you pay for. We have the only secure indoor facility in the city for 24-hour self-returns. ALL of our bikes are made in the U.S.A. - not just a few. Do yourself a huge favor and rent one of our top-notch bikes, you'll be glad that you spent the extra couple of bucks for a quality ride and superior equipment!

My wife and i took the "Creole and Crescent" tour on Wednesday and enjoyed so much we decided to book a second tour the following day "Queen of the South". The bicycles have large seats so the bumpy roads of NOLA are much easier. We had two different tour guides - Laura on day one and Andrew on day two.... More

We ended up not being able to get the bikes from these guys, yet they were still so nice and wanting above all to make sure our visit was a good one, not just to their shop but to NOLA. Highly recommended! Shout out to Oli. :)

So glad we rented bikes from here on our trip to Nola! The shop keeper was so helpful and gave us a great map with bike routes and must sees. It was a really great way to see the city and the beautiful city park (definitely bike up there and check it out - it's amazing!!) My only complaint is... More

This was a great find!! We rented bikes for four hours and took a wonderful ride to Audobon Park, through the Garden District. We'd been on a City bus tour the day before which was ok - a good overview of then City but the bike rental enabled us a more intimate experience. The Garden district is fairly big so... More

We rented bikes to ride from the French Quarter to the Garden District one afternoon. The staff was very helpful and friendly, sizing our bikes and showing us how to use the locks, etc. They provided a map that included restaurants they recommended and other points of interest. The bikes were in truly fantastic condition. We ride bikes a lot... More

This rental shop has all you need to enjoy biking around NOLA. The best value for four hour rides. Tony and Ollie will get you rigged up and adjusted to the perfect fit.

Staying in French Quarter

Neighbourhood Profile
French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port of call for folks in search of a good time and a great story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
