EagleRider Partners With Sony Pictures to Launch Easy Rider Movie Tour
Participants Will Get First-Hand Look at Movie Props and Filming Locations
HAWTHORNE, Calif., Oct. 4, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- More than 40 years ago,
the movie Easy Rider introduced us to the world of motorcycles. In 2013,
EagleRider, the world's largest motorcycle rental and tour company, is making
it a reality to re-trace the exact route of the movie with the launch of the
Easy Rider Movie Tour.
The company has teamed up with Sony Pictures and Easy Rider movie experts to
offer a two week motorcycle tour that follows the exact path laid down by
"Billy" and "Wyatt" during the production of the movie. The tour will offer
participants the chance to visit locations where the movie was filmed and ride
from the highways of Southern California, to Death Valley, and down to New
Orleans to experience the jazz and blues music that the city has to offer.
Furthermore, riders will get to see behind the scenes movie props. The tour
will be offered six times throughout 2013, starting in May and ending in
October. Click here for more information on the Easy Rider Movie Tour by
