BOULDER, Colo. (February 10, 2022) – Pedego Electric Bikes, an award-winning national electric bike company with more than 200 stores worldwide, is partnering with Imagine! Foundation by donating an e-bike and two Best of Boulder bike tours in support of Imagine’s 21st Celebration Gala!
Pedego Boulder, which opened in June 2018, offers e-bike access to over 300 miles of nearby bike paths. The store offers electric bikes for rental and purchase, as well as multiple unique guided bike tours focusing on a wide variety of landscapes and activities. The e-bike and two Best of Boulder Tour Pass donations by Pedego Boulder offer new avenues for Imagine! provide fun and healthy recreation for community members who will benefit most from these services.
To imagine! is a private, nonprofit organization based in Colorado that provides services focused on integrating people with developmental, cognitive, and physical challenges into the fabric of their local communities. Founded in 1963, the organization supports people with intellectual and developmental disabilities from birth to life with therapeutic services, job training and placement, recreation and leisure activities, community living opportunities, behavioral health, technological solutions and family support.
“We at Pedego Boulder are thrilled to support the efforts of Imagine! said Tina Moses, owner of Pedego Boulder. “Through our success since opening in 2018, we have developed a strong community of dedicated Pedego owners who are willing to support our store and our affiliations with local initiatives like Imagine! In the future, we hope to continue to give back to this phenomenal organization that has done so much for our local community.”
While e-bikes were designed as a recreational tool, the operating modes have been found to be effective as a mobility rehabilitation tool. Victims of strokes, spinal cord injuries, MS, leg surgeries, or people born with different motor abilities may be able to improve their symptoms and mental well-being with the assist bike motorized. These rehab claims are supported by numerous brain studies such as this Science Daily study and the Archives of Clinical Neuropsychology at Oxford. While physical ailments can rely on powered exercise for healing, users can also expect lower blood pressure, more energy, increased balance and flexibility, and improved overall mood.
“We are thrilled to see the evolution of e-bikes supporting people with disabilities and we are very grateful that Pedego Boulder has donated an e-bike that we can auction off at our Imagine celebration!” said Patti Micklin , Executive Director of Imagine! Foundation. “Funds raised from the Imagine! celebration will support Imagine!’s programs and services, helping to create a world of opportunity for people of all abilities.”
For those wishing to support Imagine!, their 21st annual Imagine! The Virtual Celebration Gala with KBCOs Bret Saunders will take place on Saturday, February 5 from 6:30-8:00 p.m. Registrants will be able to attend the event from the comfort of their own home and enjoy Red F Restaurant Group meals delivered right to their doorstep.
