New electric bike dealership celebrates as locals enjoy riding mountain altitudes
IRVINE, Calif., June 24, 2015 — A colorful assortment of Pedego® electric bikes has arrived in Breckenridge, and the party is on! The new Pedego Breckenridge store is inviting everyone to the Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, June 27. Owners Liz LaBelle and Paul Mutch are excited to introduce Pedego bikes to the community. Activities begin at 9 a.m. and will include a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 11:30 a.m., raffle and free electric bike test rides. Refreshments will be served.
Attendees can participate in a free group ride on Pedego electric bikes at 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. “Both groups will ride from Breckenridge to Frisco and back on a scenic tour along the Blue River Bikeway,” said Mutch. “I know the riders will truly enjoy this beautiful ride.” Pedego Breckenridge has set aside 10 bikes for each of these group rides. Advance reservations are recommended and can be arranged by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, free test rides around the neighborhood on Pedego electric bikes will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. on a first-come-first-served basis.
LaBelle and Mutch have long wanted to share the joys of cycling in their community, but they faced a challenge: Breckenridge’s high-altitude mountain environment. “Riding regular cruiser bikes meant exhausting, excruciating work for anyone not acclimated to pedaling at 9,000 feet,” explained LaBelle. “So a lot of people were missing the joys of our incredible views and extensive bike paths around Breckenridge.” The answer came in the form of Pedego electric bikes. Pedego’s powerful motors are key. “Riders can let the beautiful views take their breath away, instead of the hills,” said Mutch. “It’s amazing!”
And there are plenty of views to enjoy on Pedego Breckenridge’s self-guided tours:
- Cruise on a leisurely 2-hour tour around the historic town of Breckenridge and the base of Breckenridge Mountain. This popular ride allows visitors to familiarize themselves with the local hotspots and destinations, such as the Arts District, the River Walk, the Peak 8 Base Area or the Performing Arts Center. On this tour, riders will visit 20 locations and learn a lot of local lore.
- Enjoy a 22-mile round-trip paved scenic bikeway along the Blue River Trail. Riders thrill to spectacular views of the Ten Mile range and Lake Dillon as they cruise to Frisco. This ride allows time for lunch on Main Street, Frisco or the Lake Dillon Tiki Bar. Riders may choose to continue to Copper Mountain or even the top of Vail Pass. The ride back to Breckenridge is uphill, but riders cruise easily on powerful Pedego electric bikes, laughing at the hills as they go. This circuit takes two to four hours, depending on destination choices, and every minute is filled with gorgeous views and the exhilaration of flying along the bike paths.
The Pedego Breckenridge store offers an extensive line of Pedego models, including City Commuters, Interceptors, Trail Trackers and Pedego’s new Boomerang bike, an ultra-low step-thru model designed for style and accessibility. Coming soon is the new Stretch Cargo bike that will change how heavy loads are hauled around town. The store offers free test rides as well as rentals and tours on the bikes.
