Pedego Utah County

Pedego Utah County offers a colorful assortment of Pedego’s elegant electric bikes.

The new Pedego Utah County store is located close to many extraordinary riding destinations, including the Jordan River Trail, Murdoch Bike Trail and Porter Rockwell Trail as well as epic rides to the Timpanogos Caves and Bridal Veil Falls. Riders will see more by electric bike than they could by foot or car, enjoying gorgeous views of the region’s sweeping mountainous scenery. Zooming for miles is extra fun with Pedego’s Pedal Assist and twist-and-go throttle that helps riders power up hills, through headwinds and across distances with ease.

For the summer, both Pedego Utah County and Pedego Salt Lake City are offering “Family Night” specials every Monday evening, including special discounts on rentals for friends and family of Pedego bike owners, plus a free guided group ride.

Selby brings business and retail expertise to their Pedego stores, and he is dedicated to first-class customer service. “Pedego bikes are top quality,” he said. “I’m proud to share them with our expanding community and happy to provide free guided test rides.”

Berger grew up working in a bike shop in Newbury Park, Calif., where he learned all things gear related and dreamed of opening his own bike store. When approached by Selby to open a Pedego store, coupled with his years away from riding due to sports injuries, he knew an electric bike store was a perfect fit. “I can’t remember a day in my youth not being on a bike,” he said. “Pedego bikes have given me back everything I love about biking. I absolutely feel like a kid again,” he added.

“Zach and Shawn are Pedego legends, bringing the joy of riding to more people in Utah,” said Don DiCostanzo, CEO and co-founder of Pedego Electric Bikes. “They make sure everyone who rides a Pedego electric bike has a fabulous experience, whether on a tour, a rental or a brand-new Pedego electric bike to take home.”
