After doing a LOT of research on electric bikes, I decided to purchase one from Practical Cycle in Folsom. I have to say, my experience at this shop was FANTASTIC! Tim was available to me right away, and brought the bike that I was interested out immediately. He was very knowledgeable and answered all of the questions that I had. One bonus is that this bike shop is located at the entryway to the Folsom bike path, so I could take the bike out for a test ride safely, experience both straightaways and hills, and go for as long as I needed. SO FUN! Then, Tim went out of his way to make specific modifications (upgrades) to the bike that I wanted, even though it was at the end of the business day. AND, as if that wasn't enough, he actually DELIVERED the bike to me at no extra charge, working with me on a complex errand schedule. Now that I'm home, I just took the bike for a test ride on local roads here in the foothills of Nevada City - HILLS being the operative word. I was able to ride all the way from one end of town, into the neighboring town of Grass Valley, and home again, and the charge/bar indicator is still full! With the steep terrain here, my main concern was whether the Pedego Platinum Interceptor would have enough power & range to get me all around my area, and it did so with absolutely no problem. I tend to be a conservative rider, using all my gears and keeping the assist level fairly low at an average of "2". I still got a pretty good workout, but it was at my own pace, at a healthy level, on my own terms. Thanks so much to all the staff at Practical Cycle. I now have my biking life back after a long 25 year hiatus. ThankYouThankYou! :)

My wife and I had previously purchased 2 Pedego electric bicycles from the store in Old Sacramento. But we had moved to Granite Bay and wanted something closer and found the new store. I went to the new store in Folsom to get a tune up on the bikes. Tim was extremely knowledgeable and helpful. It was great to find the new store and to see Tim again.

Practical cycle is the place to go in Folsom, California to rent electric bikes. The bikes are like new and the location is perfect. The bike trails are right there on Folsom Alburn Road. You can go West along the American River or North up to Folsom Lake. The staff are very helpful and you will truly enjoy the experience.

I am 76 year old and not a bike rider. My wife and l and daughter rented bikes for two hours. We had a wonderful time. The location is excellent, next to bike path. To the right Folsom Lake to the left American River and Natomas Lake. The bikes are new, instruction great, power and battery lift more than adequate and owner and assistant friendly and knowledgeable.

What a beautiful way to see the American River, fish hatchery and aquatic center. They are located near the Natomas outlet center. They offer 2 hour bike rental for 30 dollars. The owner was very helpful getting us set up with the bikes. The throttle assist made up hill biking effortless. The equipment is new and the seats are comfortable. They open 10 am daily. This is the best way to go if people in your group are at different athletic levels. Everyone can keep an even pace and no one gets left behind or struggles to keep up.
