A Great Way To Get Around
Renting a bicycle is a wonderful way to see New Orleans. With a huge variety of attractions (including fun bike paths and trails) within a half mile of the bike shop, you can rent a bike solely for the joy of cycling or for transportation. You'll find that a bicycle is faster for getting around the touristy areas of New Orleans. Also, renting a bike frees you from the hassles of driving a motor vehicle (for instance, hotels don't charge for secure, overnight bicycle parking and only motorists get parking tickets).
About Cycling Here
New Orleans has over 100 miles of dedicated bike lanes, paths and off-road trails. The city is compact, completely flat and at (or below) sea level so riding is easy. The weather is mild to tropical almost the entire year too.
You're The Boss
Ride at your own pace where and when you want. We'll be happy to recommend great places to ride; however, you're free to go where you please. Naturally though, you're reponsible for the bike so treat it as you would your own.
Cheaper Than A Tour
Whether you want a simple, single speed, beach cruiser, a mountain bike, a 3 wheel adult bicycle, a tandem or even a folding bike, a wide variety of bicycle types and models are available. Depending on the type of bike, pricing begins at $25 for up to 4 hours or $35 for up to 24 hours, which is cheaper than a tour (learn more about our bike tours here).
Book Your Group Now
With all the events that take place in New Orleans, our bike rentals do sell out. To be sure that you have great bikes for your cycling excursion, we recommend that you call ahead and book your bikes in advance. The further ahead that you book, the greater the likelihood that bikes will be available.
Nobody books a tour intending to cancel; however, we understand that unforeseen events can change your plans. Unlike other tour companies, with us, you can either re-schedule or receive a refund as follows:
First, you may cancel and re-schedule for a different tour date within the next 365 days, subject to availability and black out times (like Jazz Fest). Second, if you are not returning to New Orleans within the next 365 days, you may transfer your tour booking to a friend that's coming to New Orleans! Just give us their name and have them call us to schedule the tour. Either way, you must call to cancel/rebook at least 1 hour before the tour is to depart and a 15% re-booking fee applies.
If neither you nor someone you know is coming to New Orleans within the next 365 days, you may call us to cancel and request a refund. Provided that you call and cancel at least 1 hour before the tour is to depart, we'll issue a refund less a 30% cancellation penalty. If you call within an hour of the tour or simply do not show up, there is no refund. NO EXCEPTIONS.
Conveniently located in New Orleans' historic French Quarter near the Big Easy's best hotels, RideTHISbike is open from 10am to 5pm daily (closed Tuesdays). We're just 1 block off Bourbon Street and 1 1/2 blocks off Canal St. In our block, you'll also find QT Pie Boutique, the Museum of Death, Killer Poboys, Martin Welch Gallery and Deannie's Seafood so there are plenty of reasons to come this way.
We welcome your visit and thank you for taking the time to learn more about our bike rentals.
