FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., June 23, 2016 — One of the most bike-friendly cities in the nation just made a new friend, as Pedego® Electric Bikes Denver-Downtown opens its doors. Co-owners Terry and Jean Gehrke are excited to be bringing world-class Pedego Electric Bikes to the Downtown area. To celebrate, the couple is hosting a Grand Opening Celebration on Tues., June 28, and the public is invited to attend.
Pedego electric bikes have proven so popular in Colorado that Pedego Denver-Downtown is the fifth store in Colorado. The Gehrkes also own the Pedego Denver-North store, located at 7100 Broadway in Denver. There are also Pedego stores in Aurora, Breckenridge and Vail.
“Denver residents and visitors alike can enjoy our hundreds of miles of dedicated bike paths and marked bike lanes thanks to powerful Pedego electric bikes,” Terry Gehrke said. “The whisper-quiet electric motors help riders soar up hills and slice through headwinds.”
The new Pedego store is only two blocks from the Colorado Convention Center and right in the heart of the hotel district. “From Pedego Denver-Downtown’s location, tourists can easily rent electric bikes or take guided tours to see the sites, and their stay in Denver becomes absolutely spectacular as they zip around town,” said Jean Gehrke.
The Grand Opening Celebration will be attended by local dignitaries from the Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce, executives from California-based Pedego Electric Bikes and members of the media. Refreshments will be served, and the public is invited to attend. Attendees will also receive “rent one, get one free” certificates to use at a later time. RSVPs are required by Friday, June 24. Call Jean at 303-222-0009.
