We know we are the most fun brand of electric bicycles available world-wide, and the most established and well known brand in Canada.

There are 18 models of Pedego electric bicycles sold across Canadian provinces and territories every year, including an electric tricycle and tandem bicycle, and the ever popular Stretch cargo bike.

Pedego Canada has been the top distributor of Pedego bikes, ever since Don and Terry started handing out these annual awards.

Canadians love our quality electric bicycles that are supported and serviced by independent dealers and backed with industry leading guarantees!

We couldn’t have done it without the thousands of dedicated Pedego owners, riders and dealers who have stood behind our electric bikes for more than a decade. Congratulations!
