Pedego's CEO accompanies William Shatner on way to space flight

Published October 21, 2021

NEWPORT, Calif. (BRAIN) — Don DiCostanzo, the founder and CEO of the e-bike company Pedego, traveled with actor William Shatner on his way to Shatner's recent space flight aboard Jeff Bezos' Blue Origin rocket.

Shatner began an unpaid spokesman agreement with Pedego in 2018. The agreement began when Pedego exchanged two new e-bikes for an autographed photo.

In a video interview with Cheddar Now (below), DiConstanzo said he traveled from New York to the launch site in Van Horn, Texas, with Shatner and then returned home with him after the trip. He said he always tells Shatner, 90, that "I want to be just like him when I grow up."
