  • Had a wonderful experience renting these safe, comfortable bikes with my 2 kids, and receiving owner Ryan’s excellent advice on best bike routes to take, which were not in our travel guide or known by our hotel concierge. Ryan was very nice and helpful. He even has his own custom made bike map with best bike routes and places to visit (also very valuable info) and it’s easy to follow. Definitely recommend this place, especially if you have kids (he provides helmets with bikes at no extra cost) and if you’re new to area (first time to New Orleans for us) Could never have had the easy, fun day-long ride if we had just rented some blue bikes.
  • Great shop! Ollie gave me the bike, a map, and a brief history of New Orleans. Bikes are in good condition and have a basket for your things in case you forgot to pack a decent backpack (like me). Also comes with a sold lock. Pick up and drop off were seamless. 10/10 will rent here again if I come back to NOLA.
