Bend locals excited to welcome Pedego Electric Bikes store

IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 9, 2015 — Kevin Rea has been the proud owner of Let It Ride bike shop in Bend, Ore., since 2010, and he is now delighted to take it to the next level of excitement. Let It Ride has recently re-opened as Pedego® Bend, a branded Pedego Electric Bikes store. Rea had tried offering other electric bike brands in the past, but none could compare with the quality, comfort, and power of the industry-leading Pedego bikes. He was also heartily impressed by the team support provided by Pedego.

Pedego Bend will host a Grand Opening Celebration in the spring that will include free test rides, drawings, coupons and refreshments. However, store visitors don’t have to wait that long to start the party because Pedego Bend is already celebrating with special events taking place in late 2015. The holiday season is bringing discounts and gifts in abundance. Visitors who purchase a Pedego electric bike will receive $100 off MSRP plus a free pannier bag. And the fun continues with a weekly drawing for prizes that include Bern helmets, free rentals, watches, T-shirts and more. Anyone visiting the store will qualify for entry to this drawing.

Individual test rides can be arranged by calling or visiting the store. Visitors seeking guided tours of Bend on Pedego bikes can book them through Let It Ride tours — the enormously popular original electric bike tour company in Bend. “We’re very proud to become a Pedego branded store. And our Let It Ride tours will continue to thrill guests on Pedego electric bikes,” explained Rea.

“I suggest people check our Facebook page for information and pictures that really show what these tours are about,” Rea continued. “These tours receive rave reviews.” Those who wish a more personal experience can rent the Pedego bikes and explore the region’s many scenic bike paths in style, riding a comfortable, powerful bike that flattens hills and makes headwinds a breeze.

Rea’s team includes service manager Ryan Bogucz, who provides friendly service and repairs, and shop manager Courtney Van Fossan, who helps to make sure riders return from their experiences with a huge smile. “We love the way Pedego bikes handle on our hilly terrain,” she said. “And every day we see how much our riders enjoy that freedom and power.” Rea, Van Fossan and the rest of the team are pleased with the reactions from members of the Bend community and are happily living the store’s new motto, “Hello, fun!”
