American Bicycle Rental is a local, family owned business - we are not a national chain. Look no further, you've found what you are looking for. 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!

I rent bikes all around the country. American Bicycle Rental Company of New Orleans was particularly outstanding in two particular respects. First, its map of New Orleans bicycling opportunities was more comprehensive than most, and it also contained a admonition to avoid certain sections of the city that were not safe, either because of traffic or or safety reasons. Second,... More

New Orleans is a great city to see by bike! A combination of interesting, street friendly architecture and superb public space, not to mention the flat terrain, make you want to see more than the tourist zones. The people at American Bicycle Rental were friendly and professional and the bikes solid and fun to ride. I strongly recommend them to... More

The bikes were great, the service was prompt, the staff was very friendly, and the tour guide was both knowledgeable and safe! It was a great experience! I highly recommend American Bicycle Rental for bike rentals, bike tours, or both!

We rented bikes for a group from our conference. We had already been on a tour so we used the route from the tour and the map they provided. They got our group on the road quickly. We enjoyed our ride up Esplanade to the cemetery and City Park.

We loved renting bikes and they've got the service down to a science. Renting and returning was easy. Super fun.

The team was very informative about the area. Measured us for the bikes and gave us all the emergency numbers and we were on our way!

The perfect way to see New Orleans. The cruiser bikes are well made and ideal for comfort and cruising. We rode out Esplanade to City Park to the west end, Uptown, the Garden District, and back to French Quarter. American Bicycle staff were very helpful, provided maps and locks and helmets as part of the rental fee.
