When did you get your Pedego Electric Bicycle?
I got my Pedego last August and I LOVE it!
What really attracted you to the bike?
Well, I’ve always wanted an electric bike, probably for ten or more years. I looked first at quite a few different models, and I wasn’t really all that impressed with the quality. Pedegos are very solidly built, and you can see the very precision welding, a high level of quality, and also it’s a TON of fun!
What made you want to get an electric bike to begin with?
I’ve had some trouble with my knees, and I was hoping to improve the range of motion with them. The Pedego has made a big difference to me. When the weather is bad and I don’t ride it I really miss it!
What would you say was the biggest reservation that you had when considering making the investment of your Pedego Electric Bicycle?
I didn’t have a lot of reservations when I bought the bike, but I have to say that the staff at Pedego Victoria are fabulous! They are VERY helpful, very knowledgeable. I have had a couple of flat tires, and they have been really great helping me out with that.
I would say my biggest concern was, “I hope I’m not going to spend this money and then not ride it”, but that has not been the problem at all, in fact, when I first got it, I thought, “I’m not going to ride it in the rain”, but that immediately went out the window. There’s no problem riding it in the rain. It’s a great bike, well built; it’s good for all seasons!
What would you say that owning a Pedego bike has done for you personally?
You know, owning my Pedego has made me wonder why I own a car. It’s quite interesting. In fact, I use the bike a lot more now than I ever use the car. It’s great! I use the bike to commute back and forth to work on most days unless it’s a really miserable day. It’s wonderful. It gives me a terrific sense of freedom! I also get to park at work in the underground parking, which I don’t have access to when I take the car.
How far is your commute to work?
My commute is nine kilometres each way. It’s nicer to cycle instead of driving it. I just feel much more alive!
