As the former owners of Pedego Coronado in San Diego, Owners Allan and Maria Lat are experienced at thrilling an entire region with their expertise, energy and enthusiasm for electric cycling. Rancho Santa Margarita, a master-planned urban village carved out of pastures and rolling foothills, has much to offer cyclists in scenic riding paths. “I have loved Pedego bikes for years,” said Allan, who first discovered electric biking in 2012. “The first time I rode a Pedego, I felt like a kid again, able to ride with no fear of big hills or distances. And, electric bikes are the great equalizer, letting everyone ride together.”

The Lats fell in love with Pedego electric bikes after they discovered that the company’s commitment to customer support was far superior to any other brand on the market. As with most Pedego stores, Pedego RSM is offering sales, rentals and guided tours on Pedego electric bikes. A specialty that sets apart Pedego RSM will be the two-hour guided off-road tour, available by appointment. The rate for this spectacular tour is $60 per rider.

Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo is pleased to see a Pedego store open in the foothills near Saddleback Mountain.  “Riders in the Rancho Santa Monica region are faced with challenging climbs and long uphill paths,” he said. “Pedego RSM’s choice of cruisers, commuters, mountain bikes, folding bikes and more will bring new freedom and fun to the community.”

Pedego 30A Helps the Emerald Coast Go Greener With Electric Bikes

Fun, alternative transportation introduced at new Pedego Electric Bikes store in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla.

Santa Rosa Beach, Fla., Oct. 27, 2016 — Pedego® 30A, the Emerald Coast’s first all-electric bicycle shop, is now open at WaterColor Crossing in Santa Rosa Beach. Helping the Emerald Coast go greener with the country’s Number 1 brand of electric bikes, Pedego 30A is located a half-mile between the sugar white beaches of Scenic Highway 30A and Point Washington State Forest. The new store offers Pedego electric bikes for sales and rentals, WOOM children’s bikes and a number of accessories including Nutcase Helmets, Thule, ABUS, Yepp, Burley, and many more. Pedego 30A is the 89th Pedego Electric Bikes store. Private tours and group rides are available by reservation.

A green alternative geared toward exercise, recreation or everyday commuting, a Pedego bike is just like a regular bicycle — only better! Pedego electric bikes can be pedaled manually or electronically and get assistance up to 20 MPH thanks to Pedego’s PedalSense™ technology, giving riders a little extra help riding at five different power levels. Now locals and visitors have the freedom to go farther and faster, without getting too sweaty — a bonus during the toasty summer months.

Pedego 30A owners Jason and Emily Medina are passionate about bringing Pedego’s exciting transportation mode to the sunshine lifestyle of Northwest Florida. The Medinas began their journey to Pedego store ownership as customers. Early on, they knew they’d found something special. “From my first ride on a Pedego, I fell in love with the simplicity of it,” said Jason, a Destin native and U.S. Coast Guard retiree. ”I love the ease of getting around, the alternative transportation aspect of these bikes. The flexibility and choices of destinations and routes are so liberating! I can go whenever, wherever — as I choose.”

Due to their power, chic styling and rugged durability, Pedego bikes have attracted national attention from a number of media outlets, including Newsweek, The New York Times, and The Los Angeles Times, to name a few. Most recently, Pedego was named the Number 1 electric bike brand in the country by Navigant Research (https://www.navigantresearch.com/research/electric-bicycles).

”A Pedego electric bike rental is the most fun way to get out and explore Scenic Highway 30-A and beyond,” said Emily Medina, Pedego 30A co-owner. “Riders can go so much farther, and faster, with a ton of fun along the way. With 10 models to choose from, there’s literally a bike for everyone.”

Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo added, “Pedego electric bikes are a perfect match for the Emerald Coast. With a choice of colorful bikes at hand that includes beach cruisers, chic commuters, convenient folding bikes and a powerful fat-tire bike that glides across sand, the South Walton community is sure to be delighted by Pedego 30A.”

Pedego 30A is celebrating with a Grand Opening event that will kick off with a formal Ribbon-cutting Ceremony on Thursday, Nov. 10, at 10 a.m. The party continues on Saturday, Nov. 12, from 1–5 p.m. with bike demos, raffles and refreshments. The public is invited to attend both events.
