FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 7, 2016 — Pedego® Electric Bikes, the world’s leading electric bike brand, has just rolled into expansive new corporate headquarters in Fountain Valley, Calif. The Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, June 18, will include the world’s largest electric bike parade, expected to set a record in the Guinness Book of World Records. The public is invited to participate in the 12-mile ride to Newport Beach. Pedego bicycle rentals are available at no charge to the public on a first come, first served reservation basis.
