“With Pedego electric bikes, riders can use as much or as little power as they like, controlling their exercise and enjoying the fresh-air fitness of a bike ride,” Holly Nelson said.

“Hills, headwinds and distances are no challenge for powerful Pedego electric bikes, so riders can enjoy zooming with a smile,” said Mike Nelson. “Pedego makes quality electric bikes that give riders the confidence of knowing they can cruise for miles while loving the experience.”

Pedego Seattle is located right next to bike paths that offer scenic rides and enticing destinations. Renters can take advantage of the community’s active bike culture and interconnected network of dedicated bike paths, such as the Elliott Bay Trail, which follows the shoreline for miles of pleasure riding. In addition, the 30-mile-long Seattle Urban Loop provides a well-loved path to cruise the city and enjoy the sights, smells and sounds of the Seattle area.

Seattle’s popular Burke-Gilman Trail takes riders on a scenic adventure from Ballard Locks to Golden Gardens. The path is located near Pedego Seattle and provides miles of scenic beauty with exciting destinations for riders — even as far as Redmond, less than an hour away. Self-guided tours also include rides to local wineries and breweries, which add a sophisticated element to the fun of touring the countryside.

Rental bike pick-up and drop-off are offered at both the Seattle and Redmond stores so renters can pick up a bike at one store and drop if off at the other. “Riding between cities is ideal for riders who want to enjoy a pleasant experience cycling through woods and near the water on lush eco-rich paths,” said Holly Nelson.

Pedego electric bikes are also a popular choice for local commuters, allowing riders to zoom past traffic and avoid parking hassles. On electric bikes, employees of local technology companies are empowered to ride to work in a way that’s economical, fun and green.

“The Nelsons have created the perfect fusion of tech and fun,” said Don DiCostanzo, CEO and co-founder of Pedego Electric Bikes. “Pedego Seattle brings new meaning to Seattle’s nickname, the Emerald City, with quality electric bikes that can travel distances, reach new vistas and keep riders smiling for many miles on stylish transportation that’s a truly great value.”
