    An electric bike shop held its grand opening at the Jenks Riverwalk on Sunday.

    Matt Burkhart told FOX23 that he first rode an electric bike while on vacation in California. He tried to buy one when he returned home to Tulsa, but couldn't find any shop selling them.

    So, he decided to open his own.

    Pedego Bikes at the Riverwalk sells electric bikes that are powered by both battery and peddling.

    The store is one of many new businesses moving into the area. This fall, Bramble Breakfast and Bar will open and Burn Co. BBQ is expected to open later this month.

    Earlier this summer, Andolini's Pizzeria and Maryn's Taphouse and Raw Bar both opened at the Riverwalk.
