Ed Begley Jr. Riding at Outdoor Demo

Published October 16, 2007

CHATSWORTH, CA (BRAIN)—Actor and environmentalist Ed Begley Jr. will be at Interbike’s Outdoor Demo and at the convention center to introduce Currie Technologies new Izip Express line of high-speed electric bikes.

“Next to walking, cycling has always been my preferred transportation choice,” Begley said. “I’ve been involved with electric bikes since their introduction in Europe many years ago. I began working with Currie Technologies and IZIP because I really think their hybrid technology gets it right. It’s the kind of bike that can convince non-bike riders to get out of their cars and ride.”

With speeds up to 25 mph, the IZIP Express is a practical alternative to gas-powered vehicles for many people. Powered by a dual drive system featuring the patented Dolphin Hybrid Drive, it features extremely high power, range and speed.

Begley will join the IZIP team at the Outdoor Demo in Boulder City, Nevada, on Tuesday, September 25 for test rides on the IZIP Express. Begley will use the terrain of Boulder City to demonstrate the climbing pace and ease of ascending hills that the Express delivers. He also will be available for press photos and interviews during the demo. Begley will then appear at the Currie Technologies / IZIP convention booth at Interbike on Wednesday, September 26. He will be available to meet with the press and retailers on the convention floor, where all of the IZIP Express models will be on display.
