Carry heavy loads or even a second rider on amazing new Pedego electric bicycle

stretch-cargo-17IRVINE, Calif., June 17, 2015 — It’s Superman! It’s the Flash! It’s the Pedego® Stretch! Pedego Electric Bikes is launching a new super-strong electric bicycle that will show just how far bikes can go to replace cars or even trucks. The Pedego Stretch Cargo bike is sturdy enough to hold up to 400 pounds, capable of carrying a second adult passenger or two children, reconfigurable and extra powerful. On the Pedego Stretch Cargo bike, hauling a heavy load around town is fast and fun.   Watch this Pedego Stretch Cargo bike review video to see just how strong this amazing bike really is!

stretch-passengerPedego’s team of masterminds has created the best in engineering and design. Starting at an MSRP of $3,495, Pedego Stretch boasts a lot of extras, including an attached front rack for terrific cargo-carrying stability. You can add optional interchangeable cargo accessories to reconfigure this bike for passengers, long loads or wide loads. And for super comfort and safety of additional passengers, you can add the optional wooden rear deck and wheel skirts to protect little feet from rear wheel spokes. As with all Pedego electric bikes, this model is also about comfort. Traditional city-style handlebars feel natural and comfortable to most riders. The quick-release handlebar stem allows easy adjustments for that perfect fit. A deluxe saddle with a suspension seat post provides extra cushioning to keep riders smiling. For an extra smooth finish, this bike rolls marvelously along on Kevlar-lined premium balloon tires.

While the design is fantastic, the engineering could knock Superman’s socks off. The bike’s mighty 500-watt geared motor combines forces with its powerful 48-volt battery integrated behind the seat post to help riders conquer the most wicked hills and headwinds. The stretch comes standard with 13 amp hours so you’ll arrive at your destination confidently. An upgrade is available to an amazing 17 amp hours for longer hauls down the road.

stretch-market-7And hauling loads is so simple — no mad scientists here! The Stretch has a twist throttle as well as Pedal Assist mode, which operates on five increasing levels. It adds motorized thrust automatically while you pedal. The easy-to-read LCD display shows all the information you need and has a USB charging port for cell phones and other accessories. The bike even comes standard with front and rear lights as well as fenders. The bike comes in your choice of Ruby Red, Olive Green or Gloss Black. All you’ll need is a matching superhero cape as you fly that cargo down the road!

Pedego Mammoth Lakes Rolls Out a Summer of Fun

Electric Bike adventures abound where the timber meets the town

Pedego Mammoth LakesIRVINE, Calif., June 10, 2015 — Spring is in the air, and fun-loving visitors to the region are flocking to Pedego® Mammoth Lakes in record numbers for an extra-fun boost to their outdoor activities. Electric bike guided tours and rentals have already proven extremely popular this season, even before the official start of summer. Store owner Ashley Brussel is thrilled to see so many visitors enjoying the area on Pedego electric bikes. “People are seeing more of the area than they ever dreamed before,” she said. “And they’re having more fun and enjoying more adventure along the way.”

Indeed, Pedego electric bikes make the Eastern Sierras a favorite California vacation destination. Visitors conquer steep slopes on bicycles with the twist of a throttle. Visitors not acclimated to high-altitude exercise will appreciate the assist when they need to catch their breath as they continue down the path. Pedego’s powerful rear hub motors help riders easily immerse themselves in adventure — gliding quietly through forests, climbing the highest peaks, enjoying proximity to wildlife, gazing at awe-inspiring views, and exploring wilderness close up. 

Pedego Mammoth Lakes’ three pre-planned tours allow riders to enjoy this natural playground to the fullest regardless of athletic skills. Tours take two to four hours, depending on the destination.

Explore Twin Lakes, Lake Mary and Horseshoe Lake on a paved path through picturesque country that rises high above the commonplace routes taken by ordinary pedal bikes.

Experience greater adventure at the Mammoth Earthquake Fault area. Riders glide through serene fir and pine forests on the way to a deep fissure that splits volcanic rock as much as 60 feet deep. Then they climb more than a mile to the Minaret Vista to reach the San Joaquin Ridge at an elevation of 9,265 feet — all fun and easy on a Pedego bike!

Wind along a two-lane paved trail above the scenic splendor of Crowley Lake to arrive at a natural hot tub where they can soak and enjoy ultimate serenity.

Pedego Mammoth Lakes also customizes tours to create the most memorable of special events.

Visitors can also choose to rent Pedego electric bikes and set out on their own. They can visit trout-stocked lakes, pine forests and flower-filled meadows then return to town for lunch and shopping. Located in the heart of Old Mammoth, Pedego Mammoth Lakes is an easy ride to many fun adventures on a Pedego. Rentals are available at $20 per hour and $85 per day for Comfort Cruisers or $24 per hour and $100 per day for Pedego Interceptors. A credit card is required when making reservations, and reservations are recommended. This is one adventure that is worth the effort. “We’re making summer extra fun,” said Brussel. “Everyone returns with a huge grin.” The best part is, all that fun is only a phone call away.
