WHAT SPARKED THE INCEPTION OF SAN DIEGO ELECTRIC BIKE


1 man.
1 bike.
1 garage.


But this wasn't any ordinary man. And this wasn't any ordinary garage --- inside this garage... magic happened.
Pat, a retired Navy Vet, had a gift for converting pedal bikes into electric bikes. Now, this was in 2008 --- electric bikes had barely hit the scene. You could say that Pat was "ahead of his time"...... a "mechanical genius" of sorts ---  he had a knack for developing products that he knew his future customers would want.

Long story short, in 2010, Pat converted a bicycle into an electric bike for his customer, David and the rest was history! Pat's work was impeccable --- the best that David had ever seen. Both dedicated to excellence and the desire to be the leader in the "e-bike movement", it was only natural that David and Pat joined forces and opened up the first e-bike retail location in Solana Beach.

"Hi, I'm Cory. Along with my business partner, David, we are the proud Owners of San Diego Electric Bike. We are so glad you're here!

In 2018, I officially became a part of the San Diego Electric Bike family and spearheaded the operational side of the company. Pat decided it was time to pass the company torch, so he adopted the role of becoming my mentor and taught me everything he knew about electric bikes. As Pat's Protégé, I lived and breathed electric bikes for the next 2 years.

I make it my daily mission to carry on Pat's legacy of hard work and desire for excellence. Pat's energy and passion have inspired me to do better --- as a person and as the Owner of San Diego Electric Bike. 

Leading the operational side of San Diego Electric Bike has given me a tremendous amount of insight as to what my customers want. I am relentless when it comes to discovering new ways of improving the e-bike experience for my customers. It's important to me that we make our e-bike experience accessible to everyone.

Whether you're just beginning your electric bike journey or you're an Olympian athlete looking to purchase your 10th e-bike, we will patiently guide you through the process of what it means to be an e-bike owner. It's not just about owning an e-bike --- it's about living an e-bike lifestyle."

      --- Cory, Owner of San Diego Electric Bike

A PIONEER IN THE E-BIKE INDUSTRY

In 2010, the first factory-made electric bikes made their big debut to the public and the e-bike movement started gaining traction. San Diego Electric Bike was the first company to ride that monumental e-bike wave --- selling some of the very first factory-made electric bikes in Southern California. Known for resilience, friendly atmosphere and extensive experience in the e-bike industry, San Diego Electric bike is considered a PIONEER LEADER in the e-bike industry. San Diego Electric Bike is honored to hold that title and their dedication to providing the ultimate customer experience keeps getting stronger every year.
