Frequently Asked Questions
Questions About our Bikes/Biking in New Orleans
Is a helmet included? Do I have to wear a helmet?
While helmets are not required in the city of New Orleans we will provide you with one and encourage you to use it.
Is this tour appropriate for children?
For children up to 12 years old or 100lbs (45kg), we have 2 wheeled tandem trailers. The passenger sits on a seat and can pedal or coast. All riders over 100lbs (45kg) must ride their own bicycle. We have various smaller sized mountain bikes for those able to ride on their own.
We do not have any adult tricycles or bikes with training wheels for adults that may be less confident in their riding ability. Please let us know if you would like one of our tandems, trailers, baby seats, or child bikes in advance that you’d like to reserve either a child seat or trailer.
Important Note: All child bikes use hand brakes, there are no pedal brakes available.
