A new Pedego® Electric Bike retail store will soon be opening in the heart of downtown Harrisburg.
Strawberry Square has inked a contract with dealership owners Michael, Denise & Drew Soisson to bring the nation’s largest and most well-known electric bike brand to the capital city. In addition to sales and service, Pedego® Harrisburg will offer guided tours; rentals and even free trial rides from its showroom which will be located in about 2,500 square feet at 17 North 3rd Street right across from the Whitaker Center for Science and the Arts and adjacent to the 3rd Street entrance to Strawberry Square. The store is expected to be open in September of this year.
This is a tremendous new business for downtown Harrisburg,” said Brad Jones, Harristown’s President & CEO (owner of Strawberry Square). “Electric bikes are exploding in popularity nationwide and this location in Strawberry Square is ideally suited for this use.
The Soisson family is also excited to bring Pedego® to Harrisburg. “eBikes are an exciting way for everyone to stay fit, enjoy the outdoors while social distancing, and just have fun. Designed for anyone, they are especially good because they allow the rider to use as little or as much pedaling assist as they desire”, said Drew Soisson, the Store Manager and co-owner.

They are sold at more than 125 Pedego®-branded stores in the United States and additional branded Pedego® locations in Canada, France and the U.K. The bikes are equipped with 250 to 500-watt motors which allow riders to conquer hills and cycle distances up to 60 miles on a single battery charge. The twist-and-go throttle gives riders instant manual control over their speeds while the pedal assist functionality automatically adds power to their pedaling. Available in hundreds of color combinations, Pedego’s® high-quality, innovative “pedal or not” models include cruisers, tandems, commuters, fat-tire bikes, mountain bikes, cargo bikes and a convenient electric folding bike.
