Franklin is a great place to explore, and since you might miss a lot doing it by car or get too tired traversing it by foot, why not hop on a bike instead? Or even better, a pedal-assisted electric bike. No need to wear yourself out!
Pedego Franklin Electric Bikes can provide everything you need. “Doing rentals and tours is part of the Pedego business model if the shop is in a location where they can be offered,” says Kem Harris, who owns the store along with her husband, Bob Harris. “Fortunately, Franklin is one of those locations as it has both history and popular scenic destinations within riding distance.”
These bikes allow riders to expand their horizons. “You can ride a bike anywhere in downtown Franklin, but 10 minutes on a bike and you’re in the country,” she says. Kem says their most popular tours are the scenic ones. “In addition to the destination and getting to experience riding a Pedego electric bike, our guests love the scenery along the way and feeling empowered that they actually rode 30+ miles, which they couldn’t have done on a traditional bike.”
Kem and Bob have always enjoyed riding bikes, and discovered electric bikes in 2014. “When we were on vacation, we rented electric bikes and brought home the thought of opening an e-bike store in Franklin,” she says. They chose Pedego for its quality and customer service. PedegoElectricBikes.com/dealers/franklin
