Black and Ballard chose Seal Beach for its close-knit community, quaint downtown area and proximity to local bike paths. A few minutes from the store, Pedego e-bike riders can enjoy the beach bike path stretching from Belmont Shore to Shoreline Village in Long Beach. They can also head south to Huntington Beach and beyond. With Pedego electric bicycles, distances are no big deal. “My motto is, ‘Hills? Headwinds? Ha!” quips Black. The shop has already drawn a lot of attention. “It’s the solid quality and comfort of these bikes coupled with the exciting riding events that draw people out of their houses for fresh air and fun,” says Ballard. Online interest in Pedego GLB went viral even before the store’s official grand opening. Black, a former staff writer and associate editor at the Toastmaster magazine, has been composing Facebook blog posts detailing the couple’s quest to open the store. Her posts have inspired sharing by Facebook followers (including a lot of Toastmasters)
To celebrate their grand opening, Pedego GLB is offering a free colorful Pedego sports watch to the first 50 people, 16 and older, who take a test ride. For those who want more riding time, Pedego e-bikes may be rented by the hour or day for a fun cruise along the beach or a group event, such as a family-fun quest (a form of scavenger hunt). Special rides like this will be available by request, taking Pedego riders through both Seal Beach and Long Beach, with stops at the Seal Beach Pier, Naples Island and Alamitos Bay. Pedego GLB has a wide selection of e-bike styles to choose from, including cruisers, tandems, Interceptors, trikes, Trail Trackers (off road) and a petite 24" size.
