Discover a Newfoundland Ebike Experience at Pedego St. John’s
May 3, 2023
Living somewhere people dream of coming to is a point of pride for St John’s local Mike Hall. He’s the new owner of Pedego St. John’s, located at 172 Water Street, open this spring in Newfoundland and Labrador’s capital city.
Mike is no stranger to serving his community. From a life-long career with the St. John’s Fire Department to his boat tour business – NL Boat Tours, he lives and breathes East Coast hospitality. While riding his e-bike to work at the firehall, Mike saw the adventure and transportation potential for everyone living in and travelling to his city.
“The kettle is always on,” says Hall. “Newfoundland is known for its unique culture, especially its music, hospitality and storytelling. With deep Irish roots, it is the oldest and most easterly city in North America.”
Electric bikes are relatively new to Newfoundland and Labrador. With its hilly streets and ocean headwinds, e-bikes make cycling the city more accessible. It’s an excellent way to experience St. John’s friendly hospitality, great food, festivals, marine life, traditional music and barhopping (St. John’s has the most bars per capita according to the 2017 census).
“Riding one is sure to enhance your experience here,” says Hall. “Imagine enjoying our stunning ocean views, jagged coastlines, colourful houses that line our streets, and visiting all points of interest our city has to offer – on the quiet comfort of a Pedego e-bike. Take your time and experience St. John’s at your own pace.
“This is an excellent opportunity in St. John’s, Newfoundland!” says an electrified Hall. “People want to ride e-bikes here. I am excited to offer rentals and sales of Pedego, right in our lively downtown. Pedego is a brand I feel confident in, and, I know my customers will be impressed too.”
Founded in 2008, Pedego is an early adopter and expert in the electric bike field. Pedego batteries are made with premium brand-name lithium-ion cells and all 20 ebike models come with an industry-leading five-year warranty.
“Mike has that professional yet welcoming nature we look for in the Pedego family,” says Mike Clyde of Pedego Canada. Pedego has a matrix of stores across North America and is now coast to coast in Canada. Clyde is confident in Hall’s ability to bring the Pedego experience to St. John’s.
“I know St. John’s is going to love Pedego ebikes. They are built to last and have great colour and style,” says Clyde who plans to visit St. John’s this season. “Now, I have an extra reason to come to Newfoundland! Mike has promised a fun time biking, boating and a traditional Newfoundland Screech In.”
If coming to Newfoundland is on your bucket list, make sure to connect with Hall, his wife and partner Tammy Kavanagh, and their dog Finnegan at Pedego St. John’s. Your ebike experience is waiting. If you are a St. John’s local, lucky you. Hall is ready to match you to your perfect ebike so you can join the revolution!
