WILLIAMSBURG-Pedego Electric Bikes is the latest tenant to sign on to the new Midtown Row mixed-use development complex at the corner of Richmond Road and Monitcello Avenue.

Pedego Electric Bikes, which will open in the fall of 2021, will offer tours of Colonial Williamsburg, College of William & Mary, the Virginia Capital Trail, and the Colonial Parkway.

This is the third Pedego Electric Bikes location for owners Kevin and Amy Oliver, who first opened other bike stores in Norfolk in 2018.

“We are especially excited because Williamsburg and surrounding areas have so many beautiful riding areas, and there are so many fascinating scenic rides that are possible,” Amy Oliver said in a release.

Pedego Electric Bikes will offer sales, rentals, tours, and service of their electric bikes as well as accessories and safety wear. The company is also a dealer for Onewheel Boards & Accessories, Thule Racks & Trailers, Hollywood Racks, Thousand Helmets, Sena Bluetooth Helmets, Tannus Armour Tire Liners, and Lines Bikes of Venice.

Pedego Electric Bikes joins several other previously announced commercial tenants that have opened or plan to open in Midtown Row including the newly reopened Earth Fare as well as Queen Nails and Spa, Matchsticks BBQ Co., Shear Magic Salon, and Amiraj Indian Modern Kitchen.

The New Local News Model

On July 1, we started a new way to pay for news. Yes, we want you to subscribe, but we know nobody subscribes to every site they visit just because there's a paywall.

So if you don't want to subscribe (even at the low price of $39.99 for a year), you can pay for access to individual articles. Or just buy a 24-hour pass, as if you were buying a single copy of a newspaper. We use a new payment service called Transact, which lets you pay for individual articles in as little as three seconds. And you will get $3 in credit when you sign up (just an email address, no credit card required), which will let you pay for at least 20 articles.

This is new for everyone, so we're going to ease you into this. Initially, there won't be many articles that you have to pay for. Short ones will always be free. And even the longer stories will let you read the first half or so for free. We'd love to hear what you think, so send us a note at
