Pedego Edwardsville Moves to Larger Location to Serve Growing Fan Base

August 29, 2016

Grand Re-opening party will celebrate bigger store with easier access to numerous bike paths

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., Aug. 30, 2016 — Pedego® Edwardsville has plenty to celebrate. Their rising fan base has led to a necessary move to a larger location. On September 10, 2016, the store will host a Grand Re-opening and Customer Appreciation Day. Edwardsville now has more than 50 Pedego owners, and the entire region has quickly grown to appreciate the superb quality, craftsmanship, beauty and potential for fun that Pedego Electric Bikes offer. Dave and Leslie Archer, along with son Dave Archer Jr., known to his friends and customers as “Archie,” are looking forward to celebrating the store’s success and the opening of their new larger location with the community.

The day will include a “Meet & Greet” for Pedego owners and friends and a leisurely 10-mile guided bike tour followed by an “End of Summer” picnic on the patio adjacent to the new store location. The party begins at 1:00 p.m. at the Buchanan Street Park & Ride. From there, the group ride will roll on leisurely through Edwardsville and Glen Carbon on bike paths, returning to Edwardsville about an hour later. Pedego owners are encouraged to bring their Pedego Bikes, and those who have not yet purchased a Pedego can rent one for the day or bring their regular bikes to join the fun. People who plan to rent Pedego bikes can call 618-791-1826 for advanced reservations.
