Environmentally friendly electric bikes provide affordable alternative transportation
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 11, 2017 — Celebrate Earth Day by riding a Pedego® electric bike for free. For the entire month of April, Pedego stores across the U.S. are offering free test rides so that those who go everywhere by car can see just how much fun it is to go green instead. Pedego is committed to reducing the national carbon footprint by enticing even more people to park their cars.
“When people try Pedego electric bikes, they fall in love with the ride first,” said CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Then, they fall in love with all the green benefits of alternative transportation that’s easy and fun.”
Benefits of swapping your car for an electric bike include:
- Great for the Environment. Pedego electric bikes run on clean, recyclable lithium ion batteries that power the bikes without the use of gasoline. Pedego bikes set the standard for efficient, green alternative transportation.
- Cost Effective. Electric bikes are more cost effective than cars, saving hundreds of dollars per month on car payments, insurance, maintenance, gas and repairs. It only costs about 25 cents worth of electricity to recharge the battery.
- Zip Around Traffic and Park Up Front. Electric bikes let riders zip past traffic jams and enjoy rock-star parking upon arrival. Riders zoom up hills and breeze through headwinds so they can get to their destinations promptly and easily.
- Get Fit While Commuting. Burn up to 500 calories per hour while riding electric bikes. Get fit, lose weight and have fun, all on the way to work.
Affordably priced at $2,595 to start, Pedego’s City Commuter is one of a just few electric bikes that come in multiple styles and sizes. Available in five colors, varying by model, the fully loaded Pedego City Commuter electric bikes are available in classic and step-thru frames with sizes to fit riders 5’2″ and up. Battery choices include 48v and 36v batteries with 10 or 15AH options. The bikes feature PedalAssist™, a twist-and-go throttle for immediate speed and an LCD display with a USB port for charging your phone, flasher or speakers.
