More than 200 attendees were present at the recent Pedego Electric Bikes dealer meeting in Fountain Valley, California, and Pedego Canada was honoured to be recognized at the event as distributor of the year with the most international sales.
The 1970’s theme for “Groovy Awards” dinner proved that Pedego dealers know how to have a lot of fun, as evidenced by the photos taken at the event. During his address, Pedego CEO and co-founder Don DiCostanzo confirmed Pedego is the Number 1 selling electric bike brand in North America and there are now 113 branded stores worldwide. “Our 2017 Top Pedego Dealer Awards are given to dealers who have demonstrated exceptional sales,” he said. “It’s amazing to see how they have delighted their customers, sharing their love of Pedego bikes with their communities.”
