CHICO, Calif. -  Chico's very first electric bike store opened its doors for business on Saturday.

Pedego Bikes offers an alternative to the traditional mode of pedal travel.

Store owner Melissa Hudson said, "You can use as much of your own energy as you want."

She explains that the bikes offer a good "equalizer" for families who are at different levels of riding.

"Anybody can ride, even if they don't think they have the ability," Hudson said.  "If they've got issues with hips, knees, they can do it," she added.

The Chico store is located at 225 Main Street downtown. There is also a Pedego store in Redding located at 862 N. Market Street.

Aside from the haze and smoke, we've had beautiful weather in northern California today, and it will be just as nice tomorrow. A storm is coming our way, however, and we'll have very unsettled weather this weekend.
