February 25, 2015

Locals welcome avenue to adventure on the bike paths.

Pedego 101IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 25, 2015 — Fun just rolled into Westlake Village, and it’s time to celebrate!  The new Pedego® 101 store, offering sales and rentals of Pedego electric bicycles, has been drawing crowds of enthusiastic riders since its recent opening. The store is already such a success that the owners are celebrating twice. First, on March 3 at 4:30 p.m., Pedego 101 will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony attended by the Greater Conejo Valley Chamber of Commerce as well as other local officials and VIPs.  Then, on March 14 at 11:00 a.m., the store will host a spectacular Grand Opening party featuring a group ride on Pedego electric bikes. On both dates, guests will enjoy free test rides, raffles for prizes and refreshments. The public is invited to both events.

Co-owners Linda Coburn and John Tajiri searched for months to determine the ideal location for their Pedego store, which they found in the Village Glen Plaza shopping center on Village Glen Drive between Agoura and Townsgate Roads in the heart of the Conejo Valley. “We chose Westlake Village because it’s such a beautiful and safe place to ride bikes,” said Tajiri. Coburn agreed. “Pedego bikes are so stylish. They make a perfect match for this city,” she noted. Their journey to opening Pedego 101 began with their own two-day vacation rental of Pedego bikes. Coburn and Tajiri had so much fun that they decided to share these amazing electric bicycles with their community.

The party on March 14 will also extend to neighboring merchants as many of the adjoining shops will offer their own store coupons and samples, available on the patio adjacent to Pedego 101. This includes the Juice Ranch, Joi Cafe, Massage Heights and Enhanced Life Chiropractic. Every hour during the party, Pedego 101 will raffle off prizes, including free electric bike rental certificates, colorful Pedego watches and other bike swag. They also plan to offer discounts on store merchandise.  At 3:00 p.m., Coburn and Tajiri will cap off the party with a free group ride around Westlake Lake. Free rentals for the group ride will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis that day.

Pedego 101 offers a variety of Pedego electric bike models. The Comfort Cruisers are known for their style, relaxing ride and colorful selection. City Commuters offer a sleek Dutch street-style bike that also benefits from Pedal Assist to accompany the throttle, a feature that is basic on all Pedego bikes. The Interceptor is a sporty cruiser boasting 48 powerful volts and Pedal Assist to help riders zip up and down the hills of the Conejo Valley. The off-road, rugged Trail Tracker carries riders to new adventures, and the amazing Ford Super Cruiser offers power and rugged street-style combined. Pedego 101 also boasts the brand’s new Pedego Boomerang bike, an ultra-low step-thru cruiser with superior accessibility that invites even more people to the bike path. Additionally, Pedego 101 offers a full rental fleet that allows riders to see the beauty of the Conejo Valley in a way they’ll never experience from a car on the Ventura Highway.
