Pedego Mt Lemmon

Pedego Mt. Lemmon’s electric bikes energize the Santa Catalina Mountains with fresh fun.

“Pedego electric bikes boast powerful motors that help riders zoom up mountain paths using the twist-and-go-throttle or PedalAssist,” James said. “Pedego riders discover an awesome sense of empowerment as they enjoy conquering hills, headwinds and distances,” Rachele added. “Biking Mt. Lemmon is a breeze on a Pedego electric bike.”

Riding destinations include mountain peaks and scenic vistas that overlook Sabino Creek, the Arizona Trail and trails to Sabino and Sycamore canyons. There are more than 12 miles of local roads leading around town and up to the Ski Valley, North America’s southernmost ski area. Mt. Lemmon Highway delivers a scenic ride to Tucson, giving riders the riding experience of a U.S. Top-10 alpine road climb. Additional destination rides include the summit road reaching 9,157 feet. Pedego’s powerful motors help riders enjoy the fun without having to struggle through elevation gains.

Mt. Lemmon’s plentiful ponderosa pines and aspen offer shaded riding surrounded by scenic splendor. This alpine forest provides a summer respite to Tucson’s desert heat with temperatures 20 to 30 degrees cooler than the valley floor.

“Mt. Lemmon is a beautiful, cool mountain retreat,” said Don DiCostanzo, Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder. “On Pedego electric bikes, riders will thrill to unparalleled mountain views of the Sonoran Desert below.”
