Our experience with American Bicycle Rental was nothing short of outstanding. If you are looking to experience New Orlean's outside of the French Quarter, this is the way to do it.

The bikes we rented were just great, and Laura was a joy to work with. We rented three bikes for four hours, and managed to make it up to Lake Pontchartrain at Bucktown, which I recommend everyone try to do.

If you want to see anything outside the French Quarter, a bike is the way to go. The city is nearly totally flat and there are plenty of sights to see within biking distance: The Garden District, City Park, the Zoo, the cemeteries, etc. And if you're going to rent a bike, these guys are the way to go. They... More

We were visiting from Chicago and wanted to explore the areas outside the french quarter. We wanted to find a rental place that was convenient and not expensive. ABRC turned out to be the place. The guys there were super helpful and very nice in getting us started. The process was quick and we were out riding in no time.... More

I recently moved to Nola but have not yet purchased a bike. Driving To the French Quarter on New Years Eve would have been a huge hassle so I decided to rent a bike for 24 hours. The prices were reasonable and the service was excellent. I would recommend them to anyone who needs to rent a bike in New... More

This was our first trip to New Orleans and we brought our bikes to see the city. We found The American Bicycle Rental Company and decided to use them for a bike tour as they were close to our hotel and a family run business. We had a fantastic time, learned a lot and actually ended up taking a second... More

This business has a niche of bike rentals and tours and they do well at their "thing". The shop is impeccable, the bikes are well-maintained, and the owner is patient and helpful. As an avid cyclist, I would have preferred a different style of bike, as their cruiser-style, single-speed bikes are heavy, slow, and impractical for long distances; however, the... More

I rented a bike for an afternoon and rode out to Lake Pontchartrain then came back the next day with my wife and we both rented bikes for a ride around the French Quarter. The single speed bikes are sturdy and well maintained and you get issued with a heavy duty bicycle lock in case you want to take a... More
