“It’s a delight to introduce Groton to Pedego Electric Bikes,” said Ward. “Coastal Groton is perhaps the most historic and scenic area in Connecticut. It is a very unique cluster of coastal communities, parks, cultural and recreation areas, which makes this the perfect place to enjoy a Pedego Electric Bike.”

Ward discovered Pedego while researching a viable retirement project and fell in love with what Pedego stands for—adventure, fun and connection. After a career in finance, he says his Pedego store has been both a professional challenge and a welcoming change of pace.

“At Pedego, we’re committed to inspiring connection and adventure within each of our communities,” said Cynthia Newcomb, Director of Business Development at Pedego. “We’re a people-oriented, fun-focused company, which is why Groton is the perfect addition to our Pedego family. We look forward to not only providing Groton with the best electric bikes in the world, but also cultivating a community that brings out the best in one another.”

Don DiCostanzo founded Pedego Electric Bikes in 2008 out of a desire to combine quality and style in the electric bikes category. Pedego Groton joins the over 160 locally-owned Pedego stores throughout the U.S.

Pedego Groton is located at 76 Fort Hill Rd. For more information on Pedego Electric Bikes, to find a store or try a Pedego electric bike, visit
