Took the family up the road for the annual local Street Fair this morning. Amongst the usual assortment of overpriced rides, ‘chips on sticks’ and other sugary crap was something pretty clever I’d not seen before from an event company called Bike n Blend. Basically, it was a few guys with exercise bikes rigged up to blenders. They were offering free fruit smoothies to anyone who wanted one (paid for by the local council). There was just one small catch: you had to ride the bike to blend it yourself. Needless to say the kids had a ball, completely wore themselves out and got a free drink for their trouble. Perfect for your next kids’ birthday party….???
