Annette and Glenn are life-long cyclists. The couple says that their own Pedego electric bikes have brought a new level of cycling enthusiasm into their lives. Last March, they began to share the joy with the public by opening the Pedego St. Augustine store. “Our St. Augustine community and guests love Pedego electric bikes as much as we do, so we decided to open the Ponte Vedra store,” said Glenn. The couple also owns Island Life in St. Augustine, a retail and rental destination for active beach goers.

Pedego Ponte Vedra offers an exceptional selection of scenic rides and enticing destinations. Renters can enjoy a scenic beach ride or take a tour along quiet back roads to natural splendor. The “Best of the Beach” tour glides guests along a white-sand beach, and the “Back Roads” tour takes riders on quiet back roads to the Guana River Wildlife preserve featuring miles of fresh-water streams, creeks and lagoons coursing through tropical greenery that includes twisted oaks and wild palmettos.

Self-guided tours include bike rides to local waterfront Bird Island Park where peaceful trails lead through a scenic park boasting plentiful native birds & foliage, trails, a hedged maze & sculptures. Other destinations include golf resorts and quiet back roads that take riders through the verdant Florida countryside. Destinations include Jacksonville Beach, TPC Sawgrass and other delightful locales for shopping and dining.

Fun lovers enjoy cruising easily down bike paths while relishing fresh air and freedom — thanks to each bike’s spirited electric assist. “Pedego electric bikes are powerful and well-built, so riders can glide easily along on the sand and zoom down the beach,” Glenn said.

Pedego electric bikes are also a popular choice for local commuters, allowing riders to zoom past traffic and avoid parking hassles in a way that’s economical, fun and green. “Commuting on an electric bike is so much fun!” Annette added.

“Pedego Ponte Vedra offers so much fun in this magnificent resort town with beautiful scenery and fabulous beaches,” said Don DiCostanzo, CEO and co-founder of Pedego Electric Bikes. “Annette and Glenn are providing powerful electric bikes that can travel distances, sail along the beach and keep riders smiling.”
