Pets Love Pedegos Too: Riding in Good Company
Suzanne rides her Pedego about twenty miles a day along with her Yorkshire Terrier, Bogie. “We go everywhere together,” she says, “He loves his bike, but he’s also a guard dog. This dog won’t let anyone near my Pedego.”
Before she got her Pedego, Suzanne was riding about three times a week on her traditional bike hoping to improve her health. She wasn’t getting the results she was looking for and the headwinds were devastating.
“There were a few times I was in tears, muscles shaking, and I had to stop and rest to continue on, thinking ‘oh, it’s gonna take me about three days to get home,’ ” she remembers. “Until I got the Pedego, and now it’s effortless. I ride longer, farther, and meet people along the way. It’s been an exceptional time for me.”
In addition to losing weight (and inches), Suzanne no longer has to take cholesterol medication, and she’s normalized her blood sugar levels — reversing a recent Type 2 diabetes diagnosis.
In fact, she lost so much weight that her doctor was worried and asked her to come in for bloodwork. When the results came in the doctor personally called Suzanne to ask what she had been doing because the test results were so phenomenal that she had them run twice.
“I said the only thing I had changed was my diet — I was eating better,” Suzanne explains, “and I was riding approximately twenty miles a day on my Pedego bike.”
“I love the fact that it’s getting me out there doing something I never thought I could do, or keep doing, and now I know I can.I can probably do this until the day they put me under the ground.”
