PEDEGO Electric Bikes

PEDEGO™ was conceived in 2007 to create a line of electric bikes that combine style and function to open up cycling to anyone who might otherwise not be getting the benefits from bike riding. Many people would like to ride a bike, but find it impractical or impossible because of hills, distance, health reasons, knee problems, aging or the inconvenience of having to shower and change at work. PEDEGO™ electric bikes make biking much more accessible to the 98% of the population who aren't currently cyclists.
