Veteran owned and operated a true fist class operation. From reception to return I was very pleased with the entire staff. The location was within walking distance of most area hotels. The bike was set to my needs prior to take off into the city. I have rented from many cities along my travels and without a doubt this is... More

Great customer service! Bikes are basically what you learned to ride on... Foot brakes, heavy frame, cushy seat... But NOLA is super flat, so they get the job done. Bike came with a nice map, a lock and a basket. Great way to get out of the French Quarter and check out more of what NOLA has to offer.

Hi Erika S, Thanks for taking the time to review your experience with our company! We made sure to account for our riding environment here in New Orleans and went with Custom-Made American Steel frame bicycles. You can feel the difference when navigating the bumpy streets here in town. We have worked hard on our Custom Bike Map over the... More

We were staying in the French Quarter and rented bikes to check out the Garden District. The bikes were in great shape and very reasonable to rent. They came with helmets and locks. If you wanted the bikes for after hours you were able to drop off at your convience. Streets are safe and it was a nice way to... More

We follow the recommendation of a hotel concierge and rented two bikes for four hours from this professional bike rental shop. We have been renting bikes in many cities around the world. I have to admit these folks are professional. They know the routes, they know their bikes and they know how to treat a customer. Keep the good work.... More

The incredibly easy setup and supportive staff will get you on your bicycle in no time! Providing useful maps to assist with your journeys around the city (including helpful routes to and from City Park), these guys are highly recommended - and cycling around the neighbourhoods of Nola is a must-do!

Easy to get to from French Quarter. Great bikes very suitable for cycling around New Orleans as so flat. We cycled around the whole city for the 8 hour hire, from French Quarter to Audoban Park, up to City Park then back to French quarter. Great way of seeing the city!

Bikes were simple and tough and very comfortable on the rough roads of New Orleans. Took a slow ride through the French Quarter seeing parts we had never seen before then out to city park where we visited the New Orleans Museum of Art (NOMA) then a walk through the scultpture gardens there. Next time we plan to plan to... More

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. :)

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.
