“As a former pro golfer, it was important to choose a career path that maintained my family’s outdoor lifestyle,” said Jon Krick, co-owner of Pedego McDowell Mountain. “We’re excited to launch in North Scottsdale with its natural pedal appeal — plus, it’s one of the most active communities in Phoenix.”

Pedego McDowell Mountain offers hourly and daily rentals of Pedego electric bikes, ranging from $50 to $100. Available bikes for rental include the classic Comfort Cruiser, sporty Interceptor, Stretch cargo, tandem for two bicyclists, Trail Tracker fat-tire and City Commuter bikes. Riders can enjoy taking a self-guided tour around the area’s picturesque desert and mountain scenery in North Scottsdale and beyond. Guided tours are also available.

The store sells all 12 models of Pedego’s popular electric bikes for exercise, recreation and as a green alternative for transportation. Retail priced from $2,295, Pedego electric bikes feature a state-of-the-art motor for hill climbing and acceleration reaching a maximum of 20 mph, integrated battery, twist-and-go throttle for power on demand and cruise control-like pedal assistance.

Pedego bikes have 500-watt hub motors that help riders cruise distances of 20 to 60 miles without getting tired. Riders of all levels have an array of options from which to choose for their lifestyles: Pedego’s California-style cruisers, including the Pedego Platinum Interceptor, a fully-loaded cruiser bike; the Pedego Interceptor, which boasts a 48-volt battery that propels riders with extra power; and Pedego’s Comfort Cruiser, which is powered by a 36-volt battery for gentle help with hills. Also available are the sleek City Commuter; the sturdy Stretch cargo bike; the Trail Tracker fat-tire bike for riding on gravel and snow; the Ridge Rider electric mountain bike; and the Latch, an ingenious folding bike, designed for portability and convenience. Pedego also recently introduced the Airstream model for camping devotees.

“Riding bikes in sunny Phoenix is even more fun on an electric bike,” said Don DiCostanzo, CEO and co-founder of Pedego Electric Bikes. “We’re delighted the Kricks have chosen to share the joys of Pedego with their community. Hello, fun…”

The grand opening and open house event is scheduled on Oct. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. This family-friendly Halloween-themed event will include a costume contest, raffle prizes, food trucks and complimentary test rides with Pedego bikes.
