“We are all thrilled to bring Pedego Electric Bikes to Wheaton,” said co-owner Jeff Alvis. “Wheaton is a unique family oriented community that has both small town charm and big city access, making it a great place to build connections and explore new hobbies. The love of biking is evident throughout this community, and we could not be more excited to inspire connection through fitness and the freedom that comes with exploring the outdoors on a Pedego.”

Jeff Alvis, along with his friend and former colleague Bill Budicin and their wives, opened Pedego Wheaton in March 2021 after a year of retirement from a previous career in management consulting. “We saw an opening to capitalize on the extraordinary market opportunity here,” said Jeff Alvis. “Coming out of retirement, I found myself wanting to discover new ways to give back to my community, and I saw the Pedego support model as a perfect way to allow people to rediscover joy and adventure with Pedego Electric Bikes.”

Don DiCostanzo founded Pedego Electric Bikes in 2008 out of a desire to combine quality and style in the electric bikes category. Pedego Wheaton joins the over 180 locally-owned Pedego stores throughout the U.S. and Canada.

“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 Wheaton is the perfect addition to our Pedego family. We look forward to not only providing Wheaton with the best electric bikes in the world, but also cultivating a community that brings out the best in each other.”
