Boston invited to grand opening for new Pedego dealership

Mike and Gabriela Pedego BostonIRVINE, Calif., March 25, 2015 — Spring is bringing a brand new kind of energy to Boston. Pedego Boston, featuring Pedego® electric bikes, will host a Grand Opening celebration on April 4 — and everyone’s invited to celebrate a return to sunny days and fun. The party starts at 11:00 a.m. with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:30 a.m., which will be attended by Massachusetts State Senator William Brownsberger and Sami Baghdady, Selectman for the Town of Belmont. Activities will include refreshments and door prizes as well as a raffle for prizes and a group electric bike ride at 1:00 p.m. The group ride is free, but bikes will be available on a first-come-first-served basis as this promises to be a very popular event!  This is also a great opportunity to meet the owners of this new Pedego location and discover why they feel so passionate about Pedego.

Pedego Boston store owner Michael Hauser loves Pedego electric bikes. In fact, while technology has been his profession, bicycles have been his passion for years. So when Hauser discovered Pedego electric bikes, he was convinced by their chic cycle design and state-of-the-art engineering that he’d found something Bostonians will love. He was right. The store opened quietly last fall, and the bikes have quickly developed a following despite frigid winter weather. “I am exhilarated by the strong interest our bikes are generating around town,” he said. “A lot of people are stopping by to take a test ride and ask questions. They’re also spreading the word around the community.”

The vibe at Pedego Boston is open and friendly, just like the bikes they sell. Michael answers to Mike, and his wife Gabriela goes by Gaby. And their location choice in the Boston area has proven to be a perfect match for this exuberant couple. “We chose Belmont because it is one of the communities west of Boston that has a lot of bicycle commuters,” said Hauser. He adds that even more people have said their commutes are too long for a standard bicycle, so they’ve been showing immense interest in electric bikes that make longer trips feasible. The Hausers are thrilled at how quickly the town has fallen in love with Pedego electric bikes.

Their location is excellent for rentals as well. “Cushing Square is a great area with a lot of energy and close proximity to Boston’s best bike trails,” noted Hauser. Belmont is close to two of the Boston area’s major bicycle trails: the Minuteman Trail leading to Lexington as well as the Paul Dudley Bicycle Path on the Charles River, which offers a great, safe and beautiful route to downtown Boston and Cambridge. Locals and tourists have been lining up to ride the colorful bikes along both trails.

Pedego Boston offers a variety of chic, sturdy and leading-edge electric bicycles. Models include the stylish Comfort Cruiser line and sleek City Commuters as well as off-road Trail Trackers and low-slung Boomerang bikes.  Pedego seems to have a model for everyone.
