Pedego sponsoring national e-bike safety program

Published January 11, 2023

FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif. (BRAIN) — Pedego Electric Bikes announced it will sponsor a national e-bike safety program with its North American retailers offering free instruction.

Pedego will work with the American Bicycling Education Association, which will make its CyclingSavvy programs and materials available at all Pedego retailers.

"If we just save one life, it will be worth it," said Don DiCostanzo, Pedego founder and CEO. 

Pedego retailers will be given the knowledge to teach bicycle safety classes in their stores, while Pedego e-bike owners will have access to free online courses.

Pedego’s sponsorship will give ABEA needed resources to create more content to address the growth of e-bikes. CyclingSavvy is a program combining hands-on and online courses.

“We teach bicyclists to thrive in the existing environment,” said Keri Caffrey, CyclingSavvy co-founder. “Our courses are designed to give them the tools they need to ride where they want, on their own terms. From bikeways, to quiet streets, to complicated, intimidating intersections, we show people how to ride with ease and joy and be in charge of their own safety.

“With the growth of e-bike popularity, and the increasing capabilities of e-bikes, it is more important than ever for riders to understand risks, improve their skills, and avoid crashes. We are extremely excited about Pedego sponsoring these essential programs. Their diverse customer base and ability to reach a large audience with bicycle safety education and training tools will benefit bicycling for years to come.”

CyclingSavvy also offers free courses for group riders, as well as premium courses to navigate the commute across city, suburban, and rural infrastructures. Advanced certifications for experts and instructors are available online.
