Don DiCostanzo, CEO Pedego Electric Bikes, has one of the best jobs in the world. “What I offer people is a way to have fun,” he said. The purpose of a Pedego Electric Bike is to not only extend a bike ride but also expand the age range of people who enjoy bike riding but may struggle with hills. The bikes have the ability to pedal all of the time, not at all, or riders can use the throttle for assistance.
“It’s like being in a convertible, but you also get some exercise,” said DiCostanzo. “People are able to get out and ride and have fun.”
Pedego Electric Bikes offer 12 different models and designs, so there is a bike suitable for everyone of all ages. There are seven Pedego locations throughout Orange County and 100+ locations around the world. All stores rent bikes, and some stores offer bike tours.
“I encourage anybody to just try one,” said DiCostanzo. “Rent one, or take a guided bike tour. Try the different models and sizes and find one that best fits you.”
A Pedego Electric bike is a fantastic way to see the sites in Orange County or wherever you are and get some exercise at the same time! For more information on purchasing a Pedego bike or renting one for the day, please visit
