Pedego Electric Bikes Aiken will hold a charity bike wash from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 15, at the store in the Village at Woodside.

For $20, Pedego Aiken will wash any bicycle and provide owners with refreshments while they wait. All proceeds will go to Paceline to fund cancer research. Based in Augusta, Paceline uses bike rides to raise funds for critical research and survivorship at the Georgia Cancer Center.

“This is a great opportunity to get your bike cleaned and meet other Pedego and bicycle enthusiasts,” said Freeman Coleman, the shop manager for Pedego Aiken. “Even more important, it’s a chance to help a worthy cause. We charge $20 for the wash and refreshments, and we give $20 of that to Paceline.”

Paceline will hold its main event bike ride on Oct. 24. Because electric bikes are allowed, Pedego Aiken is forming a Paceline team. Participants can choose to ride 25, 45 or 100 miles.
