Bryan Newman and his bride, Michelle, fell in love with electric bicycles when they test rode some on the advice of a friend. Bryan, a professional golfer, saw the potential immediately. ”Pedego electric bikes are amazing,” he said. “I grew up in Coachella Valley, and on a Pedego I saw areas of historic La Quinta I had never seen before,” he added. As co-owners of the new Pedego La Quinta, they’re looking forward to sharing new adventures and biking activities with their community.   

Pedego La Quinta is set to open its doors by March 10, 2015, though test rides and orders can be arranged prior to that date by emailing The Newmans are excited to share Pedego’s renowned products and service with the Coachella Valley. “I feel like we’re part of the Pedego family already,” he said. “The products are superior and so is the staff at Pedego corporate.” He believes his customers will appreciate the same kind of service that he has experienced working with the company.
