Get a unique view of one of the most popular Hudson Valley towns with a new mode of transportation.

If you've traveled to any of the big cities recently you've probably seen motorized scooters scooting around town. One Dutchess County town took the hint and has added a pretty cool feature.

Pedego Electric Bikes has opened up shop in Beacon. On the Pedego Beacon Facebook page they write:

Pedego Beacon is a locally-owned store where you'll be treated like family. We are the region's foremost electric bike experts offering sales, rentals, accessories, and service.
