BOBCAYGEON-BASED E-BIKE BUSINESS EXPANDING TO LINDSAYJanuary 13 2022
Kawartha Lakes This Week reports about local businesman Allen Hussey expanding his Pedego Electric Bike business to a second location.
Al, the owner of Pedego Kawartha Lakes in Bobcaygeon, Ontario, is about to open a sister store in nearby Lindsay.
Reporter Bill Hodgins describes the location as near a high-visibility intersection, and not too far from the Trans-Canada Trail entrances, heading north to Haliburton and east to Peterborough.
The reporter also notes how Al has hired well-known bike mechanic Mike Gorman to run the store.
When he heard Gorman was closing his Spokes for Folks business in Cambray, he reached out to gauge his interest in working at the Lindsay outlet. Gorman jumped on board.
For him, the chance to still work with bikes appealed, as did the three-day-a-week schedule. For Hussey, it’s having someone with the reputation and talent of Gorman at the helm that appealed.
