We were walking back from lunch at Tartine and stumbled across a brand new bike business in town. It's called Pedego Electric Bikes and they sell and rent state-of-the-art electric bikes. Be sure to talk to Allan or Shaun to learn more about how the bikes work. Plus, the will let you test drive it around the island just for stopping by.
Pedego electric bikes Coronado will celebrate its grand opening on Saturday, August 11 in Coronado, California. Allan Lat, Pedego Coronado owner, is excited about his new venture and sees it as a boon for Coronado residents as well as tourists visiting the local island. “I believe in this company.” he says. “I like Pedego’s extensive array of models, as well as their research and development, and the way they back up their bicycles.”
The bike culture on Coronado is one reason Lat chose this location for his shop. “Fancy restaurants have bike racks out front. A lot of people who live here bike everywhere, and they choose fashionable bikes,” he says. This combination makes Pedego a perfect way to visit Coronado’s many attractions. The colorful bikes have already made an impression on Coronado residents. Lat notes that people see the bicycles parked outside the store, which opened for business recently, and are attracted inside. That’s all it takes to create fans. “Locals who have rented our bikes are coming back for more,” he reports. “I believe that we are in the early stages of developing a true alternative to cars.”
Lat is planning to move to Coronado. “It’s a slice of heaven here,” he says. “Anyone who bikes around the island can see it.” Meanwhile, he will commute to a job he already loves deeply. “I made a point to search for the best possible venue for these quality bicycles,” he says. “Coronado is on the top-10 list of California tourist attractions, and I see it as the best platform for introducing these bikes.”
A Pedego electric bike is a high-end bicycle with the addition of a smooth and silent built-in electric hub motor. A rider can pedal normally and use the motor to help with hills and headwinds or use it all the time to make riding easier. They come in various models, including cruisers, commuters, tandems, interceptors and a petite 24” size. With an entire island to explore, the argument for electric bikes is strong. “These bikes are widely received and are especially accepted among tourists.” says Lat. “Now people can access the whole island without becoming exhausted.”
