A former government affairs executive, the new store owner Todd Ketch has made Pedego Alexandria his second career. Ketch discovered Pedego electric bikes on a visit to Pedego RVA in Richmond, Va., with his daughter. “We took off on a couple of Pedego bikes, and it was so much fun that we couldn’t stop smiling,” said Ketch. “It was a really joyful experience that motivated me to open Pedego Alexandria.”
As a lifelong cyclist, Ketch was especially impressed with his ability to ride great distances on the Pedego bikes despite having endured major back surgery in 2016. He said, “Pedego bikes deliver extra fun for all riders, and they also help people who need the extra assistance to ride.”
Located in the heart of historic Old Town Alexandria, Pedego Alexandria offers a wide choice of scenic rides and thrilling destinations. Pedego renters can take advantage of the community’s active bike culture with an interconnected network of dedicated bike paths, including the Mount Vernon Trail. Touring Old Town on a Pedego offers riders a unique opportunity to experience 250 years of history while they cruise along tree-lined streets and the Potomac Waterfront with stops at historic buildings, landmarks, parks, stores, restaurants and more.
Destinations also include an exciting ride to Washington D.C. on dedicated bike lanes that provide amazing views along the river and protected access directly to the monuments, museums, restaurants, entertainment, sports venues and everything else Washington D.C. has to offer. Riders can also enjoy riding to the National Harbor across the river from Old Town in Maryland, Georgetown in Washington D.C. and other historic towns and small cities along the trails in Northern Virginia.
“Pedego Alexandria brings a fun and empowering way to explore Alexandria’s beauty and history,” said Pedego Electric Bikes CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo. “Locals and visitors can see and do more riding with Pedego bikes while smiling the whole time.”
