Love Smoothie Bike’s pedal powered blenders now mixing things up across London

A small company in London have been providing a unique take on fresh drinks using custom UK built California Cruiser bikes that convert pedal power to high speed blending. These green machines are available to hire for events and will crush ice, blend healthy smoothies or mix up delicious cocktails.

In addition to the bikes there is the option of adding an arcade game that pits users in a game of pedal skill to see who can match the perfect pedal blend. The game is all about cadence control as the speed you pedal guides a character on screen, the closer to the ideal course on screen, the closer to the perfect blend and the higher the score! The bikes can be hired on their own, with the arcade game and customers can also choose if they would like to have ingredients and a member of staff provided to manage things.

The London based company is called Love Smoothie Bike and can be contacted for events at info@lovesmoothiebike.co.uk or by calling 0203 375 6208.

Love Smoothie Bike was started when a client asked founder Tom (while he was working for a smoothie supplier) if they could have fresh smoothies at the finish line of a charity run in the middle of Regents park with no electricity for a blender. Instantly cogs, chains and pedals started whirring in Tom’s brain and he discovered that it was indeed possible using pedal power. The first bike was built in time for the event and Love Smoothie Bike was born.

The smoothie bikes are a good way of injecting some energy into an event and have been used for health and wellbeing initiatives, sustainability events, community events, festivals, product launches and promotions. They are fantastic activity to add to a summer or Christmas party particularly as they are insured to cover guests blending alcoholic cocktails, so offering both healthy smoothies and cocktails at the same time is very simple which caters for different tastes.
