The only thing is that it was a little pricey vs NYC, but otherwise service was great. The bikes were adequate as well.

Great bikes, good price! The staff at the shop were informed of areas to go and not to go. Had an after hour drop off if needed. Good time!

I went to the American Bicycle on a fairly busy day in June, but the woman there was taking care of everyone, and doing it well. We all got out the door pretty quickly, with maps and good instructions, and good bikes. I had a great time on my own, biking around, using the map and taking the woman's advice.... More

This bike company was awesome. From the moment we walked in the door the attendant was there to help. They did not do tours on Wednesday but she was quick to tell us many of the sites we could visit on our own. She provided a map with great directions. The bikes were the best I ever rode on with...

My boyfriend and I knew we wanted to spend a day biking around New Orleans, but had no idea where to go. The woman at American Bicycle Rental was very friendly and mapped out a couple different routes for us to try. We ended up doing both! Her suggestions were perfect, and we had a great time checking out the... More

Our experience with American Bicycle Rental was very positive. They were thorough; explained everything we needed to know. The bikes were in prestine condition; like new. We were on our own, no tour and were interested in exploring City Park. The staff were very helpful with our route and suggested stops along the way. We were so satisfied that we... More

This shop is not cheap, but it washes away all of the frustrations you find at other Bikeshops. For instance you can leave your bike overnight anytime literally anytime 24 hours a day or return it anytime with a code to the space. Bikes are beautiful and sturdy. It was a great experience.

Ill be honest. My first thoughts when I saw the rental bikes were "oh no, a fixed gear" But I hail from a hilly place, so that thought vanished with a quickness. These bikes are rugged, well maintained, easy as pie to lock and unlock, and best of all, simple simple simple. The staff was super friendly and kind and... More
