ELECTRIC BIKE SALES
PEDEGO GROTON is not just another shopping mall style bike store, it is a rewarding visitor experience in and of itself. PEDEGO GROTON is located on the historic Groton Family Farm Property, currently a 7 acre homestead in the heart of the Groton civic district on locally named Fort Hill Road ( Route 1 / Colonial Boston Post Road ) The property has been continuously owned by the Burrows family since the late 1700’s, with the ancestor grandfather, Robert Burrows, being the very first English settler in West Mystic in the mid 1600’s. He received original land grants from the Connecticut Colony and was awarded the first charter to operate the Mystic River ferry. Immediately to the East is Fort Hill, a prominent local hill top which was the pre colonial site of a native American Pequot village. This outpost village, along with the more fortified village on Pequot Hill in West Mystic was ultimately destroyed during the Pequot war of 1637. Within minutes to the South is the combined Bluff Point / Haley Farm State Park and Preserve, a 1,000 acre coastal treasure with unparalleled local natural wonders. To the West, PEDEGO GROTON conveniently connects with beautiful country and coastal roads that lead you to the Thames River with sweeping views of Long Island Sound and coastal New London City. With a range of 30-40 miles on a single e-bike battery charge, you will be within easy riding distance of no less than 4 historic districts, each unique in character, history and scenery. This area prominently displays numerous iconic landmarks, memorials, naval military / coast guard, corporate and industrial defense centers reflecting the rich history of the townspeople for nearly 4 centuries. Among the most commemorated is the Revolutionary War battlefield site at Fort Griswold, sitting atop Groton Heights with a commanding view of New London City.

ELECTRIC BIKE TOURS
Bluff Point / Haley Farm State Parks
Enjoy the beautiful natural wonders of the combined Bluff Point / Haley Farm State Parks on a PEDEGO electric fat tire bike. At approximately 1,000 acres, this is the largest parcel of undeveloped coastal property between New York City and Cape Cod. PEDEGO fat tire bikes provide the perfect balance of power assist, agility and ruggedness to tackle the more primitive road conditions of the Parks. With your experienced guide leading the way, you will travel in a small group (up to 6 bikes) along the network of perimeter gravel roads, with stops along scenic overlooks, hidden coves, expansive sandy beaches and historic sites. You will have time to walk the barrier beach in peace and solitude and explore this very unique coastal preserve.
Bluff Point / Haley Farm State Parks
Traveling at your own pace, enjoy the unique experience of e-biking coastal Groton / Noank / Mystic. This area has a wonderful connected network of scenic coastal roadways, paved bike routes and natural pathways. PEDEGO Groton is pleased to provide you with a large selection of e-bikes for your excursions. Beach cruisers, mountain, fat tire and commuter bikes will all serve you quite well in exploring this expansive and diverse area. You will not be able to explore it all in a single ride or on a single style e-bike, so plan to return for many visits ! For the more adventurous, include in your ride the interior gravel roads of Bluff Point and Haley Farm State Parks, stopping for scenic vistas, beach walks or hidden cove exploration. Or concentrate on the beautiful coastal and riverside roads of Groton Long Point, Noank, and Mystic. Take a break and have a snack, lunch or dinner at the Noank lobster piers or other local restaurants, step back in time by riding the historic districts of Mystic and Noank, or just simply enjoy the pleasant weather and outdoor experience of a recreational ride that a beautiful PEDEGO electric bike can provide.
Thames River Excursion
The historic and picturesque Thames River shoreline is just 4 short miles west of PEDEGO Groton, a short burst of power for a PEDEGO electric bike. Your party can start your trip by first visiting Bluff Point State Park to enjoy the serenity of this coastal preserve or travel directly to both Avery and Eastern Point. The views looking out into Long Island Sound and across the Thames River into coastal New London are stunning. The adjacent beach community has been designated as an historic district and contains many beautiful homes and cottages from the Victorian era. While long gone, the magnificent Griswold Hotel once stood on nearby shores as part of the larger Plant family estate (now a UCONN campus). Depending on your initial riding schedule there may be time to visit historic Fort Griswold, sitting atop Groton Heights, the site of the largest revolutionary war military action in Connecticut. The site proudly hosts the iconic monument, memorial gate, battlefield and museum. This area is quite hilly and spacious with commanding views across the Thames River into New London City proper. Electric power assist will give you unlimited access to explore all areas of this historic district. At the base of Groton Heights near the Gold Star Bridge is the United States Navy World War II submarine memorial. The site is dedicated to the 3,617 submariners who were lost at sea during this epic world struggle. On your return to PEDEGO Groton, consider stopping at the Colonel Ledyard Cemetery and honor the legion of Fort Griswold defenders who willfully gave their lives that fateful day in September, 1781.
