Pedego Electric Bikes in Old Town is planning to open a store in Vienna next month

Business has been so good at the Pedego Electric Bikes shop in Old Town that owner Todd Ketch is planning to open another location in Vienna next month. The ink is still drying on the deal, but if all goes as planned then Ketch will be opening in an industrial section of downtown Vienna.

“The pandemic was like dumping gasoline to the fire for the electric bike market,” Ketch said. “It’s not going to stop from here. How are we going to take full advantage? I’m going to open a second store in Vienna, and we’re excited.”

No official announcement has yet been made, and Ketch wants to do a soft opening in March and a grand opening in May.

There are three bike models available to buy and rent at Pedego, ranging from $1,995 to $5,495. The bikes can go up to 60 miles on a single charge (without pedaling) and travel at 20 miles per hour. One model can even be retrofitted to travel 28 miles per hour. A single rental will cost $100 for the entire day, $70 for four hours or $40 for two hours.

Ketch, who is a licensed Pedego dealer and not a franchisee, has been in business at 210 N. Lee Street since 2019. He’s a former lobbyist and government affairs executive, and Woodbridge with his wife and four kids.

Aside from the new location, Ketch is now gearing up for the busiest time of the year — The National Cherry Blossom Festival, which runs from March 20 to April 17.

“That’s when we really get our season going,” Ketch said. “We’re we’re getting ready for that, in addition to trying to get position to open the other store.”
