Dale, do you have time to add a link to this on the SFEVA website?
*Currie Technologies and actor / environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. launch the
new IZIP Express line of high-speed hybrid electric bicycles at Interbike
*Launch includes test rides for press and retail at Outdoor Demo 2007 on
September 25 and 'meet-and-greet' with Ed Begley, Jr. on the convention show
floor on September 26*
*For Immediate Release*:
*August 20, 2007* - *Chatsworth**, CA* - Currie Technologies, the North
American leader in hybrid electric bicycle innovation and sales, will launch
their new line of IZIP Express high-speed bicycles at the 2007 Interbike
convention in Las Vegas September 24-28 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas.
The IZIP Express is powered by a dual drive system featuring the patented
Dolphin Hybrid Drive, creating a unique bicycle with extremely high power,
range and speed. The IZIP Express will outdistance, outrun and outperform
virtually any other hybrid electric bikes on the market at speeds up to 40
km/h (25 mph), making them a practical alternative to gas-powered vehicles
for many people.
*Ed Begley, Jr.* will join the IZIP team at the Outdoor Demo in Boulder
City, NV on Tuesday, September 25 for test rides on the new IZIP Express.
Begley, a long-time supporter of bike riding for both fitness and
environmental impact, will use the terrain of Boulder City to demonstrate
the climbing pace and ease of ascending hills that the Express delivers.
Begley 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.
"Next to walking, cycling has always been my preferred transportation
choice" says Begley. "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. Now, with the Express, people have a bike that can
legitimately replace their car for many trips and errands. If I had to
identify my most important 'green' message for the coming year, it would be
to encourage people to 'get out of their cars'. With the Express, it's
"Currie Technologies' relationship with Ed Begley, Jr. and his TV series
underscores our company's commitment to reducing carbon emissions through
cycling-as-transportation" said Currie president Larry Pizzi. "Bicycles
have always been a sport and fitness activity, but we want to encourage
non-cycling enthusiasts to consider hybrid electric bicycles as a green
transportation alternative. The Express makes that possible - and helps the
overall cycling industry grow."
