Glide past gridlock, park up front and get fit commuting by electric bike
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., April 17, 2018 — This Earth Day, April 22, thousands of people around the country are making a commitment to green living, including trading their cars for bicycles. Pedego® Electric Bikes makes it easy to keep your commitment to green living.
Benefits of commuting by electric bike include:
- Glide Past Gridlock. On an electric bike, sail around traffic jams and often times even arrive at your destinations faster than you would by car.
- Rock Star Parking. Zip past parking hassles and pull right up to the front door. Avoid parking fees and arrive on time — and under budget.
- Keep Comfortably Cool. On an electric bike, control your workouts and arrive fresh, energetic and ready to roar into action.
- Clean Scene Green Machine. Combat greenhouse emissions in the fight against global climate change. An electric bike is the ultimate green vehicle.
- Amazingly Affordable. With no DMV fees, no gas bills, no parking fees, no car insurance and no car payment, commuting by electric bike delivers a huge cost savings over a car.
- Get Fit. Electric cycling provides exercise disguised as fun, delivering a great workout — burning up to 500 calories per hour — while riders work out their day’s stress.
“We’re proud to help people commit to Earth Day in a meaningful and sustainable way,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “The benefits of commuting by electric bike are real, and so is the fun of every ride.”
