Today in the news, music-producer Simon Cowell injured his back when he crashed in his $20,000 Swind EB-01 ebike. Hopefully this will raise the public’s awareness of ebikes.

1. Simon Cowell is well-known British music producer. He was a host and judge of the TV show “American Idol” and also more recently “America’s Got Talent”. Due to his work in the American entertainment industry, one of his homes is in Santa Monica, near the beach. In August of 2020, he injured his back badly (requiring surgery), when he crashed his powerful and expensive Swind EB-01 ebike.

2. Arnold Schwarzenegger needs no introduction, since he is world-famous. Bodybuilding champion, global action movie star, and Governor of California. He has been seen on many different ebikes, riding near the beach in southern California.

3. Martha Stewart built up a 100-million dollar publishing empire about cooking and crafting on her own. She was accused of getting inside stock tips, and because she refused to take a deal and snitch, the feds threw the book at her. She did time as a felon in a federal prison, but she’s out now. One of the funniest developments is her current friendship with Snoop Dogg, so I wonder if she’s tried any new brownie recipes?

4. William Shatner became famous as Captain Kirk on the TV show “Star Trek”. He also did a great job as Denny Crane on “Boston Legal”. He is a spokesman for Pedego ebikes, and there are dozens of pics available of him riding different models.

5. Jay Leno was the host of “The Tonight Show” for over 16 years, and he now has a youtube channel about his passion for cars and motorcycles, called “Jay Leno’s Garage”. Here is a link to his review of Vintage Electric Cruisers (click here), and here is his review of the Lightning electric motorcycle, below.

8. Gene Hackman has been in too many movies to list, and he is one of my favorites. If you can only see three of his movies, I recommend “The French Connection”, plus “Enemy of the State” and also “Unforgiven”.

9. Jason Momoa played Khal Drogo, the Dothraki king in “Game of Thrones”. The eighth season was a disappointment, but Jasons workout routine never disappoints. Schwarzenegger and Momoa both like fun fat ebikes, even after pedal-only bicyclists keep claiming that only the weak use ebikes.

10. Prince Charles‘ only job is to wake up each morning and check the newspaper to see if his mom has died. He is shown below at a fundraiser for green causes. Sadly, the UK has a power limit of 250W…

13. Miley Cyrus is a wildly successful singer/songwriter, but she is probably more famous for outrageous publicity antics.

Here’s Miley on a baby-blue Pedego beach cruiser. Someone should tell her to get some more air into her rear tire!

14. Richard Branson became famous when he started Virgin Records. He went on to start Virgin Airlines, and now that he’s a billionaire he’s funding Space Ship-1 to provide space-tourism to the wealthy, and also carry micro communications satellites.

16. Darryl Hannah Became famous as the mermaid with Tom Hanks in “Splash”. She was an android in “Blade Runner” with Harrison Ford and also a one-eyed assassin in “Kill Bill, Vol 2” with Uma Thurman. She dated John F Kennedy Jr, and is currently married to singer/songwriter Neil Young.

In this picture, Darryl Hannah is riding an Izip at an environmental PR event, but the pic is cropped because the Currie corporation used this pic in their advertising without permission, so she sued (then settled out of court).
