PR Log - Dec 05, 2012 - Hollywood, California -- Pedego Electric bikes have been photographed a lot lately, as a growing number of celebrities are riding the colorful e-bikes around LA. The latest luminary to join Pedego’s constellation of stars is none other than the Captain of the Enterprise himself — actor, author and director William Shatner. In a move that proves a Pedego electric bike makes any trek worth taking, Shatner and wife Elizabeth recently took delivery of two new Pedego Interceptors at Metropolis Bikes in North Hollywood.
While waiting for her bike, Elizabeth exclaimed, “I feel like a kid again!” Her excitement escalated visibly when she saw hers, a spirited Step Thru Pedego Interceptor with balloon tires. When climbing on for the first time, she added, “It’s the same gray-and-blue color combination as our horse stables!” She was referring to the colors of the Shatners’ horse barn at the Belle Reve farm in Kentucky.
Shatner appeared thrilled when he took the helm of his powerful silver Pedego Interceptor. The experienced horseman and motorcycle rider easily leapt on his bike – a sure sign that his adventurous fun-loving spirit has kept him young. Admiring the frame, he said, “This bike is made of so much quality. You can tell. I really love the silver brushed aluminum finish.” The couple spent some time exploring their Pedego electric bikes’ style and workmanship. After that, they smiled for the camera before pedaling down the road on a new adventure together.
Metropolis Bikes owner Brad Wasser stood nearby, delighted, as the Shatners admired their Pedego e-bikes. His shop has supplied many celebrities with bicycles over the years, and he quipped, “It’s a pleasure to put a Hollywood icon on a quality e-bike that will boldly take him where no e-bike has taken him before.”
Other stars recently pictured on Pedego electric bikes include Michael Jackson’s daughter, Paris Jackson, 2004 Miss Universe Jennifer Hawkins and celebrity chef Curtis Stone, as well as Billy Ray Cyrus and daughter Miley Cyrus.
