What kind of music do you play?
We have developed several playlist on Spotify. We normally use a playlist based on what participants request. If you have Spotify you can send us your playlist and play that as well.

Every participant gets a bottle of water (additional bottles are $1.00). We don't provide any food or drinks while on the ride. We do make 3 stops on the ride where one can use the restroom, get a snack, and buy something to drink.
Do I have to wear a helmet?
Wearing a helmet is not compulsory in Louisiana. However, If you want to wear one we have an ample supply.
What type of bike will I ride?
This is very important and what sets us apart. We realize that most people haven't used back pedal brakes since they were children. For this reason we have invested in top quality city bikes with hand brakes. You will ride with comfort, ease, and style on one of our beautiful Public Bikes. These elegant single speed, Dutch style city-bikes with curved step-through frames are easy to ride. We also take the time to adjust the seat to a comfortable height rather than assigning you to a bike that may not fit your size.
Unlike many other single-speed bikes, our single-speed Public Bikes allow you to coast and relax while riding, while also using powerful dual pivot hand brakes and alloy rims to ensure great stopping power. Built with a high-quality steel frame, they have matching fenders and chain guards.
The bikes’ geometry keeps comfort in mind, as you ride you will be able to sit upright and take in the sights without hunching over. They are also equipped with a cup holder, bell, and a front basket to carry your belongings.
When should I arrive for the ride?
Please arrive at least 15 minutes before the start time of the ride. The ride departs at the time you booked the tour for. All participants must fill out a waiver. Early arrival also gives us ample time to fit everyone on a bicycle and to give a safety briefing.
Where do we meet for the ride?
We meet at our French Quarter location:
What is the maximum amount of people you take on the ride?
Being that we aim to make this a parade like experience we take up to 32 people and can max out at 45 upon request.

How does the Nightlife Ride work?
As described above, the nightlife ride is like a parade on wheels. One of our escorts will lead you around town with a soundtrack to boot.
Groups larger then 10 will have two guides. One guide up front and one in the rear. The guide in the front will lead you on the smoothest and safest routes, while serving as a DJ. For larger groups the guide to the rear is going to direct traffic and deal with any technical issues should they arise.
What time does the ride start?
The ride starts at dusk, therefore starting times vary. Click the link above or call to inquire about availability (504.321.1505). We offer the ride twice a night on Thursday-Sunday nights. We will schedule Nightlife Rides outside of those time frames for private tours of 15 or more participants.
What kind of groups do you host?
Our rides are geared toward any occasion. From a girls night out, bachelorette parties, bridal showers, birthday celebrations, family reunions, corporate events, team building experiences for businesses, or people who just want to have a good time.
