May 20, 2021
Locally-Owned Electric Bike Shop Opens Doors to Community; Inspires Connection And Celebrates Outdoor Activity
STONY BROOK, N.Y.—May 24, 2021—Pedego Electric Bikes, a leading electric bike brand, is now open in Stony Brook at 690 NY 25A Ste. 10. Local store owner Trisha Larsen and her husband, Martin Larsen, invite the community to join the ribbon cutting ceremony and community event on Monday, May 24, from 12 p.m. – 3 p.m.
The event will feature a ribbon cutting and grand opening celebration with the chamber of commerce, Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn and Pedego Director of Business Development Cynthia Newcomb.
“It’s a delight to introduce Stony Brook to Pedego Electric Bikes,” said Trisha Larsen. “As someone with a background in healthcare, I enjoy helping people on their search for something that’s both healthy and fun at the same time. Pedego electric bikes are the perfect harmony of a fun and healthy lifestyle, and I feel fortunate to bring that experience to the Stony Brook community.”
The Larsens both have a background working in the healthcare industry. Martin Larsen has been a principal sales representative for Medtronic for 19 years. He began his career in the cardiac rhythm division at the Fortune 500 company as sales and technical support of implantable pacemakers and defibrillators. His enthusiasm for Pedego electric bikes stems from his love of the outdoors, specifically mountain biking, golfing and skiing.
Before opening her Pedego store, Trisha Larsen worked in the catheterization lab at Emory University Hospital and then in medical device sales for Medtronic. “My husband and I tried a Pedego Interceptor while in Connecticut and instantly, we were hooked on the quality of the electric bike and how much fun we had,” said Trisha Larsen. “I got burnt out on the corporate life and simply wanted to move on to something fulfilling and fun. That’s why I chose to join the Pedego family.”
“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 Stony Brook is the perfect addition to our Pedego family. We look forward to not only providing Stony Brook with the best e-bikes in the world, but also cultivating a community that brings out the best in each other.”
Don DiCostanzo founded Pedego Electric Bikes in 2008 out of a desire to combine quality and style in the e-bike category. Pedego Stony Brook joins the over 160 locally-owned Pedego stores throughout the U.S.
