Grand Opening events celebrate Colorado’s 6th Pedego Electric Bikes store

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July 20, 2016 — The new Pedego® Steamboat Springs electric bike store is charging up the Rockies with a wide variety of electric bike models for sale. Pedego bikes boast whisper-quiet motors and powerful lithium ion batteries to help riders zoom up hills and enjoy mountain vistas with ease. This is the 6th Pedego store in Colorado and the 84th store worldwide for Pedego Electric Bikes, the nation’s Number 1 electric bike brand according to Navigant Research. Free test rides are available at all of the Pedego stores.

Pedego Steamboat Springs will celebrate its official grand opening with a ribbon-cutting ceremony on Friday, July 29 and a party on Saturday, July 30. The public is invited.

Co-owners Linda John and Bruce Caplowe started as customers first. “I rode my first Pedego in Vail. I didn’t know what to expect because I ride pedal bikes a lot,” said John. “I couldn’t believe how much fun it was! Plus, I realized that electric bikes are a fabulous way to commute, run errands, and go out to dinner — plus much more — all without working up a sweat.”

Business partners Caplowe and John decided to open their Pedego store in Steamboat Springs —also known as “Bike Town USA” — to bring electric bikes to this bike-loving community. “I love the fact that Pedego electric bikes give everyone the opportunity to get active, get outside and have some fun,” explained Caplowe. The store will celebrate its official Grand Opening over a two-day series of events.
