    Mtb hire in New Orleans?

    Hi all - I'm visiting New Orleans (from Sydney, Australia) for the first time next weekend and will have some time to fit in a ride. From what I've read, the Spillway seems to be the place to start.

    My question is where I can rent a mtb in NO? All the bike hire places seem focused on cruisers to pedal the French Quarter while the more serious bike shops don't advertise rentals on their websites.

    Any pointers?

    Eric is certainly the guy to talk to. They usually have a demo bike or two at the shop.

    If you're in town this weekend you should come out to the Spillway on Saturday for the Spillway Scramble race. Final round of our statewide XC series. Great time to hit the trail.

    Thanks for the tips, y'all.

    Eric made it super easy and had a nice fisher 29er dually for me to take out. Had a great and muddy morning at the Scramble.

    Nice track and friendly crew.

    And NOLA was great fun too.
