Hot New Pedego Electric Bikes Store Sizzles in Scottsdale’s Sunshine

February 18, 2015

It’s a family adventure as region’s first Pedego store attracts attention.

pedego-scottsdaleIRVINE, Calif., Feb. 18, 2015 — For most of their lives, Scottsdale residents Bill and Kathy Puryear played it safe with a traditional home and secure careers. Then, on their 30th anniversary, the couple went wild — leading to fantastic results. While zipping around some California resort towns on Pedego electric bicycles, they fell in love with adventure on two wheels. “We realized that there was nothing like this in Scottsdale, and it could be a really exciting business to pursue,” explains Bill. The Puryears rolled out of their comfort zone and seized the opportunity to share Pedego’s unique mix of exercise and entertainment with Scottsdale and the Valley. Since Pedego Scottsdale opened its doors, the neighborhood has been energized with a new kind of fun. Locals and snow birds alike continue to visit the store to learn more about the electric bikes.

Pedego Scottsdale is a family affair. The Puryear’s extended family and friends joined forces as the store’s management and sales team. When time allows, the entire group has fun riding the electric bikes together. Bill, 59, is overjoyed about bringing Pedego to his hometown. “The Northern Sonoran Desert offers breathtaking scenery with diverse geologic outcroppings, rolling hills and plant life,” he says.” Pedego gives you confidence to go further and see more of this beautiful part of the country than you’ve ever gone before. And you don’t have to worry about being out of breath when trying to get home!”

“Minutes into our first Pedego Electric Bike ride, we wanted our very own bikes so we could have this exciting experience all the time in Arizona,” said Kathy. “However, I never imagined Pedego bikes would take us this far.” Pedego bikes are especially helpful in Arizona’s famous climate. When the weather warms up, you can still ride your bike. You’re in control of your exercise and can pedal or not.

Strategically located “on the beaten path” in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale, the store is now part of an international tourist and cultural destination. Pedego Scottsdale is situated on the canal bank with endless paths and trails taking riders almost anywhere in the Greater Phoenix area.

The store offers a variety of Pedego brand electric bicycles. There’s the colorful selection of Comfort Cruisers known for their style and relaxing ride. City Commuters offer a sleek Dutch street style bike that also benefits from Pedal Assist to accompany the throttle — basic on all Pedego bikes. The Interceptor is a sporty cruiser boasting 48 powerful volts and Pedal Assist to help riders zip around Scottsdale. Then there’s the off-road rugged Trail Tracker that carries riders to new adventures as well as the amazing Ford Super Cruiser offering power and rugged street-style combined. They can also show off Pedego’s new Boomerang, an ultra-low step-thru cruiser with superior accessibility that invites even more people to the bike path.
