An Electric Bike Event with Pedego Qualicum Beach

An electric bike event with Pedego Qualicum Beach on Monday, Nov. 10, at 7 p.m. at the Filberg Centre in Courtenay, BC.

The pedal-assist bicycle trend is offering Comox Valley residents much more than an environmental transportation option, it is bringing smiles and joy to pedalling even in the face of hills and long distances. Join the Comox Valley Cycling Coalition on Monday, Nov.  10, at 7 p.m. at the Filberg Centre in Courtenay to learn how to get a little assistance when cycling in the Comox Valley.

This is an opportunity for both cyclists and non-cyclists to discover what new bike technologies are trending, and see some electric bike options. The Comox Valley Cycling Coalition invites you to meet-up in an informal social setting. We plan to have fun while giving you food for thought on new ways you may choose to get around your community in the future.

Pedego Bikes Qualicum Beach offers bikes that were engineered not to mimic other bikes but rather to provide specific support for a transportation alternative. Their bikes offer people new cycling choices whether for fun and recreation or for the economics of replacing a car with a bike.  Their pedal-assist bikes will help you propel past personal obstacles including hills, injuries, training, and operational costs while allowing you to feel good about your personal health and “green” lifestyle.

Julie and Ruby, owners of Pedego Bikes QB, are looking forward to showing you three of their electric bikes – the Trail Tracker, the Comfort Cruiser and the Interceptor 2.

Ford goes zero-emissions with a Pedego electric bike

Ford Motor Co., as part of its commitment to putting more lower-emission vehicles on the road, has done a deal with California-based electric bicycle company Pedego.

The result: a Ford-branded beach cruiser powered by an electric battery that buys the rider up to 20 miles of pedal-free operation — or longer, if the rider pedals part of the time.

Pedego's Ford Super Cruiser

The original impulse, the auto company said, came from Executive Chairman Bill Ford, who has encouraged the company to reimagine the future of transportation.

Two years ago, a Ford representative approached Pedego and asked the company to build a bike.

Pedego Electric Bikes got its start in 2006, when co-founder Don DiCostanzo bought an electric bike so he wouldn’t have to pedal uphill on his way back from the beach. He didn’t like the bike he bought, so he built his own.
