Pedego opens five branded stores in December

Published December 10, 2015

IRVINE, Calif. (BRAIN) — Pedego Electric Bikes recently opened five new stores in Delray Beach, Fla., Southlands (Denver), Colo., Bend, Ore., Portland, Ore., and Redding, Calif. The new stores bump the store count for Pedego-branded locations up to more than 75.

“Communities love us,” said Pedego CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “They see Pedego Electric Bikes as an opportunity for locals and visitors to enjoy a healthy activity, escape their cars, lessen traffic, build relationships with family and friends, and just plain have fun enjoying the scenery.”

Three of the shops — Pedego Delray, Pedego Southlands and Pedego Portland — followed the typical pattern of starting up as Pedego-branded stores. However, two of the locations revamped their existing bicycle stores to include Pedego stores: Pedego Bend, in association with Let It Ride, in Bend, Ore.; and Pedego Redding, in association with Cyclopedia, in Redding, Calif.

In addition to selling Pedego electric bikes, most Pedego stores also offer rentals and group rides. 

The Irvine, Calif.-based company says it has grown by 50 percent each year since it was founded in 2008. Pedego electric bikes are sold in more than 800 stores in 40 countries.
