June 1, 2016

Grand Opening Fiesta slated as popular electric bikes charge up the mountain

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 1, 2016 — The new Goldsmiths Pedego® Big Bear electric bike store is bringing summer fun to the mountain resort area with top-of-the-line Pedego electric bike models available for rentals and sales as well as guided and self-guided tours. Nestled in the heart of the San Bernardino mountains and surrounded by the San Bernardino National Forest, Big Bear is a prime electric bike rental destination for its hilly paths rolling through breathtaking pine forests and along the beautiful Big Bear Lake. Located inside family-owned Goldsmiths Sports shop, Goldsmiths Pedego Big Bear will host a Grand Opening Fiesta on June 11 with food, fun and free test rides, and the public is invited.

“Goldsmiths Sports has provided snow sports equipment to the region for nearly 30 years, and we opened Goldsmiths Pedego Big Bear to offer something new and extra fun as a warm-weather option for our customers,” explained shop co-owner Fred Goldsmith. “Electric bikes are an exciting yet easy way to ride and enjoy a great adventure without risking over-exertion in high altitudes.” Co-owner Danielle Goldsmith Rahill agreed. “Pedego bikes allow riders to choose their experience. They can conquer hills and headwinds and pedal or not,” she said.


Conveniently located in the heart of Big Bear, Goldsmiths Pedego Big Bear offers a choice of guided and self-guided tour routes from the store providing excellent views and fresh-air fun along with historic Big Bear stops. Corporate events are also available.

The Grand Opening Celebration slated for June 11 offers the public an opportunity to test ride exciting Pedego models including the Interceptor beach cruiser, Ridge Rider mountain bike, Trail Tracker fat-tire sand and snow bike and the Stretch cargo bike.

All bikes boast 48 volts of zip to help riders go the distance and fly up hills with ease.
