Pedego opens its 119th store, in Mexico City

Published March 30, 2018

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. (BRAIN) — Pedego's newest store is now open in Mexico City, becoming the e-bike company's 119th location. 

The store is co-owned by husband-and-wife Juan Pablo Michelsen and Mercedes Aranazabal, who discovered Pedego electric bikes while living in Boston as graduate students. "We were instantly in love with Pedego bikes, and we are delighted to bring them to the locals and tourists here in our home of México City," Juan said.

Located in the heart of México City, the store offers sales and rentals of several Pedego models. The store also offers guided tours. Riders age 15 and older can cruise on a guided tour led by Andy Chilanga, a local historian and art expert who shares interesting stories as the group glides around the city. A $50 Day Tour takes riders around México City, passing through the Castillo de Chapultepec forest to Reforma Centro and the Downtown area. The park area is larger than New York's Central Park with multiple scenic and historic destinations scattered throughout, accessible by scenic bike paths. Participants see more than 17 buildings and monuments, enjoying flavorful Mexican refreshments along the way.

"It's wonderful riding a powerful Pedego bike in México City," said Mercedes. "You can see more than you can by foot or car. It's especially delightful riding through the Bosque de Chapultepec, known as 'the forest in the city' in English."

"Pedego México City offers visitors a fun new way to see this historic and beautiful city," said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. "Riders can zoom past traffic and enjoy scenic paths that will take them to fascinating destinations."

The store is the neighborhood of Polanco, which attracts both locals and tourist for its restaurants, stores and parks. Additional information is available at or by emailing or calling (55) 7260 2751.
