Local Electric Bike Shop Hosts Group Bike Ride And Community Event, Inspires Connection And Outdoor Activity

WAUCONDA, Ill. — June 19, 2021—As part of the nationwide “Hello Fun Tour,” Pedego Electric Bikes Wauconda, also known as Main Street Outfitter Bike Shop, is hosting a neighborhood Palooza event on Saturday, June 19, from 12 to 10 p.m. The event will feature a Pedego group ride, catered food, live music and more. Pedego Director of Business Development Cynthia Newcomb and Pedego Director of Customer Service Wendy Denny will also be in attendance to connect with local Pedego enthusiasts.

“We are thrilled to celebrate our Pedego community with this Palooza event,” said Paul Wheatland, owner of Pedego Wauconda. “Pedego is all about building community and cultivating adventure, which is exactly the spirit of our upcoming event.”

Wheatland opened the doors to his Pedego store in 2016 after falling in love with the Pedego brand and mission. He previously worked in the wireless phone business for more than 30 years.

“After experiencing a Pedego Electric Bike for myself, I knew I wanted to share that same experience with my local community,” said Wheatland. “Wauconda is a small town with some of the best people you will ever meet. It’s been the perfect community to grow the Pedego family.”

Pedego Wauconda is a locally owned business that offers additional services aside from electric bikes sales. “We also rent out recreational water gear like kayaks and paddleboards,” said Wheatland. “The most unique thing about our store is that we also operate as a bar and restaurant with live music. It’s just another way we can foster connection and bring our community closer together.”

This event is one stop of many on Pedego’s 2021 Hello Fun Tour. With stops in more than 80 communities that are home to Pedego storefronts, the Hello Fun Tour will highlight more than 40 new store openings, adding to the brand’s footprint of over 180 locally owned locations.

“The Hello Fun Tour is the highlight of our year at Pedego,” said Pedego CEO, Don DiCostanzo. “We love the opportunity to celebrate our communities. This tour is a unique way for us to show our appreciation and to surprise and delight our store owners and customers. Pedego is all about community, connecting with others and enjoying exercise, and the Palooza events embody just that.”

Founded in 2008, Pedego was created to be the best brand of electric bikes, not necessarily the largest. Don DiCostanzo founded Pedego out of a desire to combine quality and style in the electric bike category. Thus, Pedego’s premium, quality bikes were born.
