Pedal or Cruise, An Electric Bike from Pedego Junction is the Way to Go When Touring Around Harrison Township

Clemens or, stop in at some of our local restaurants for some fine cuisine. You can select between a full day, half day or quarter day bike rentals. 

Arrive by boat or come by car; you can rent a Pedego Junction electric bicycle by the hour or by the day at a reasonable cost.  Get some exercise, cruise along, or use the "pedal assist" mode, it's your choice.

Greg offers several models of Pedego bikes, which look like normal bicycles, except they have a small, quiet motor on the rear wheel hub which propels the it forward when the pedal assist or throttle are activated.  One popular choice is the Pedego City Commuter which features an LCD display that shows the speed, ride time, odometer, trip distance, pedal assist level and battery power. The City Commuter is perfect for all skill levels, as you don’t have to pedal at all with the five levels of pedal assist that can reach 20 mph. 

Greg adds that once people try touring on a Pedego Junction bike, they're often back wanting to purchase one.  He will be glad to accommodate requests for sales, too!

The popularity and quality of these bikes is proven by the fact that Pedego now ranks number 1,836 on the 2015 Inc. 5000 Annual List of America’s Fastest-growing Private Companies in Recognition of its Exponential Sales Growth.

Pedego Junction is open daily from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.  They are located at 31785 South River Harrison Township, Michigan.  For more information, call  (810) 543-1111 or visit

Outdoor Hub : Lake St. Clair Offers Prime Summer Bass Fishing
Although mostly known for smallmouths, Lake St. Clair boasts excellent largemouths, too. Ask 10 bass fishermen to rattle off the best bass lakes in Michigan and if nine of them don’t mention Lake St. Clair right off the bat, there’s something wrong with your sample. Lake St. Clair is and always has been one of the best bass lakes—and not only in Michigan, but in the country. In fact, it’s one of the best bass lakes in two countries, as Michigan shares the 430-square mile Great Lakes connecting water with Ontario, Canada.

Lake St. Clair a great North American fishing destination
The Lake St. Clair fishery - which includes fish, people and habitat - is widely regarded as one of the best in North America, and provides significant social and economic benefits. Fish such as yellow perch (the favorite food fish in the Great Lakes) and walleye represent significant protein sources. Economically, the Michigan waters of the Lake St. Clair system generated $36 million in economic activity in 2004 alone. Fishing is, for many, a lot of fun, and as a recreational fishery, it provides many physical and mental benefits to people. Moreover, a healthy fish population equals a more stable ecosystem.
