Pedego Electric Bikes energizes Minneapolis-St. Paul with 92nd store
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Dec. 13, 2016 —Pedego® Electric Bikes’ 92nd store has opened, and the staff of Pedego Twin Cities is already fielding excited calls from across Minnesota. Owners Craig and Ann Paulson are experienced bike shop owners, and even they are impressed by the region’s ecstatic response to their chic, sturdy electric bikes. Located in Minneapolis, Pedego Twin Cities is offering Pedego bikes rentals and sales with a full menu of tours debuting soon. In March, they’ll host a Grand Opening Celebration with free test rides, refreshments, entertainment and prizes.
Pedego electric bikes are great at flattening hills and helping riders power through headwinds. They also help riders travel incredible distances without exhausting themselves. A dedicated bike lane that runs in front of the store leads directly to the Minnehaha Parkway, which is part of the Grand Rounds Scenic Byway — a picturesque set of roads and paths that sets the region apart for its fabulous biking opportunities. “Our location is perfect for visitors who want to tour the area and enjoy the scenery with ease,” said Craig. “And we’re also perfectly situated for locals who want to enjoy riding around the community in style and comfort.”
It wasn’t hard for the Paulsons to convince the Pedego Company that Minnesota was ready for electric bikes. “We own a standard bike store in Owatonna,” explained Ann. “We ordered a Pedego bike for a customer and fell in love with it ourselves.” The Paulsons first opened a Pedego store within their original Owatonna bike shop, Straight River Sports & Fitness. “We knew right away that we wanted to bring these extraordinary bikes to the metro area of Minnesota,” said Craig. Now, they’re excited to open a store dedicated to the joys of Pedego Electric Bikes — Pedego Twin Cities in Minneapolis.
“The Cities’ Grand Rounds Scenic Byway is a cyclist’s dream,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Our electric bikes will empower riders to take off from Pedego Twin Cities and enjoy beautiful scenery for miles and miles.”
Pedego Twin Cities offers an extensive assortment of Pedego electric bikes. Models include beach cruiser styles, such as Comfort Cruisers and Interceptors that can power through headwinds and climb hills with ease, as well as chic City Commuters, Ridge Rider mountain bikes, ultra-accessible Boomerangs, the Latch electric folding bike as well as the fat tire Trail Tracker that glides over snow and gravel. Call the store to learn more about what each model has to offer and to arrange a test ride.
