PRLog - Aug. 21, 2012 - Pedego Corona del Mar (Pedego CDM) will celebrate its grand opening over the weekend of August 25 and 26. Special events, including a Pedego e-bike group ride, will be scattered from 10:00 to 6 pm, throughout both days. It’s an opportunity for members of the community to tour the store, enjoy light refreshments and have some fun. Owner Bill Coleman of Corona del Mar is making the event even more special by donating 10 percent of all profits from the weekend’s bike sales to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County, an organization dedicated to eliminating hunger locally. Pedego CDM will also give away a free Pedego watch to anyone who purchases an electric bike that weekend and to Pedego owners who join in the group ride.
Pedego's colorful storefront adds more fun to Corona del Mar's seaside ambiance.
Pedego Corona del Mar will offer Pedego electric bike sales and rentals to start (guided bicycle tours are planned). Between the two current choices, more locals and visitors will be able to say, “Hello, fun” in this scenic Southern California beach town. With towering bluffs providing fabulous views of the beaches below, Corona del Mar makes an attractive destination for bicycle riders. However, some challenges have kept a lot of people from pedaling this section of the California Coast. Coleman, a Corona del Mar resident, loves biking around town but always felt the strain of an uphill battle at the end of the day. “With the local beaches, the Balboa Ferry and the peninsula to explore, this can be the most enjoyable ride in the world,” he says. “But the steep terrain and powerful coastal winds have always meant a struggle for regular people who want to hop on a bike and go exploring.”
When Coleman tried a Pedego electric bike, he realized he’d found the answer. “A light went off in my head,” he says. “In an area filled with rolling hills, Pedego electric bicycles are a perfect fit for people who want to ride bikes with confidence.”
Coleman enjoys describing the quality construction, silent-hub motor and comfort that have made these bikes famous. But he stresses their style. “People can show their own personalities with the ease of customization, all the options in style and color that are available.” The bikes come in models to meet most needs including cruisers, commuters, tandems, interceptors and a petite 24” size.
