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!

American Bicycle Rental provided good bikes (with a large basket, bike lock and helment) along with maps for biking in New Orleans. I rented several days and went from the French Quarter to City Park, Lake P and thru the Garden District to Audubon Park. The best ride was out on the Mississippi trail which goes north from Audubon Park... More

We rent bikes for a day to visit NO. We get offered water, maps and Bicycles were cleaned and in good conditions and we appreciate the anytime return even after the shop closed. This is a plus.

Was during second weekend of Jazz Fest. The shop was very busy. The guys working in the shop seemed a bit overwhelmed. It took a while for anyone to acknowledge us when we walked in and we were rushed out. I am in the retail food biz and understand the power of repeat biz and the Internet these days. Please... More

We stopped in on a Wednesday to inquire about renting a bike for Thursday and was told that we could rent bikes with no problem on Thursday. Nothing was said about Jazz Fest other than it would be hard to rent one during the fest (Fri. Sat. Sun.). When we arrived on Thurs. the price was kicked up from $30... More

Hi "A TripAdvisor Member" (Blatant misinformation requires anonymity I suppose) First off we have been advising inquiries regarding Jazz Fest the same way since 3 weeks after the fest ended last year. The same rates and procedures have remained true for the last 4 YEARS $50 per 24 hour rental period, no reservations. As to your claim that prices "kicked... More

Everything was great, the location, the people, the solid bicyles, helmets, and locks. They have a good system so you can return bicycles after they're closed. They provide a high-quality map, but warned against us taking the levee breach bicycle tour (http://levees.org/bike-tour-of-levee-breach-sites/). We did the levee breach bicycle tour anyways, and it was completely safe, in beautiful neighbourhoods, very interesting,... More

Walked in and walked within 10 minutes. Quick application process and nice, down to earth staff. Easy to get to and from in the city. Recommend as a place to hire and a good way to see the city.

I rented a bicycle by the hour here and really enjoyed myself. The price of the rental was a very reasonable $10 for 1 hour or $25 for 4 hours. I rented two cruisers and decided to tour New Orleans' French Quarter during the daytime on two wheels. The bikes were well-maintained. I even rode through Armstrong Park. All necessities... More

Hi SoloStarSky, Thanks for the great review, we appreciate you taking the time to write it! We're happy to hear that you had a good time rolling around the city.
