Grand Opening and Earth Day Celebration energizes region with two days of special events
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 13, 2017 — Pedego® Mile High is throwing a combined grand opening and Earth Day celebration on April 21 and 22, and the public is invited to join the fun. Owners Jean and Terry Gehrke have been sharing their passion for Pedego electric bikes with the community at their Downtown Denver store since 2015, and the party is growing as their operation expands with the opening of their new Pedego Denver Mile High electric bike store.
“Pedego electric bikes empower riders to breeze up mountains, go longer distances and scale high altitudes here in the Denver region,” said Terry Gehrke. “Our new Pedego Mile High megastore brings even more fun to the Denver region.”
Boasting nearly 5,000 square feet of showroom space, Pedego Denver Mile High is a Pedego megastore, offering a huge selection of Pedego models, including the sporty off-road Trail Tracker in three sizes, powerful Ridge Rider mountain bike, the sophisticated City Commuter, the ingenious Latch folding electric bike and the new Pedego Trike that is empowering more people to get out riding.
The party starts on Friday, April 21, with a group ride to celebrate Earth Day. Open to the public, the group ride starts at Pedego Denver Mile High and goes from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. From there, the group will embark on a free Pedego guided ride to Skyline Park to enjoy the City of Denver’s Earth Day festivities. Members of the Pedego Owners Group, the Colorado Electric Bike Club and all electric bike owners are invited to participate. Pedego rental bikes are available on a first come, first served basis.
On Saturday, April 22, the Grand Opening celebration continues with open house festivities at the new Pedego Denver Mile High store. The party starts at 10:00 a.m. and goes until 4:00 p.m. and will include free test rides and visits by Pedego VIPs. Door prizes, BBQ lunch and a free guided group ride around Sloan’s Lake make this a fun event for everyone. Rental fleet bikes, City Commuters and Interceptors are available by RSVP on a first come, first served basis.
