  • Occasionally we attempt a really big smoothie operation, in which we show up with hundreds of pounds of fruit, ice, juices, etc., and get lots of people bike blending.

    If this is what you’re going for too, here are the factors you’ll need to consider:

    – Time (prep, setup, and the event itself)

    – Ingredients

    – # of Bike Blenders and enough space to position them

    – # of pitchers

    – Other kitchen gear: tent, tables, washing system, banners, waste system.

    – size of your crew

    – will you be sampling (giving away the rest of the pitcher)? Or will each person blend their own smoothie?

    Last Wednesday we did a big gig at the Cal Campus in Berkeley. The client / partner was Under Armour and their event firm Engine Shop. The goal was 1000 smoothies in 6 hours with 10 . We nearly hit the goal. We got a lot of things right and learned a lot too, and here’s a report of all that.

    Set up time.

    We showed up with a fully packed van at 8:30AM for an 11 O’Clock start time. Unloading with 4 people took 30 minutes, including positioning the bikes. By 9AM we were up to 5 people. With this size group we were able to set up the entire smoothie booth operation in 2 hours with time for coffee!

    Crew size:

    I planned on having a crew of 5 at the peak, but this wasn’t enough. We really needed a crew of 7. The event provided us 1 coach and our crewmember Caleb came on as a floater midday, to bring some things we forgot from the shop, and to help with the lunchtime rush. He stayed till the end. We had an experienced crew. Only their staffer was a newbie.

  • Bike Blenders in Dubai at Car Free Day

    The Dubai Municipality’s Environmental Awareness Team took it to the people on Kite Beach as part of Car Free Day, an effort to pull over 30,000 private and government cars off the roads on February 21. Their custom branded were the focus of their well-organized activation, drawing in people to experience the joy of pedaling, and then drink the tasty results of their efforts. The man on the left raising his hand is a ‘‘ — a crew member responsible for helping people on and off the bikes, pulling them in to the activity, raising or lowering the seat so they get maximum efficiency from their muscles, and cheering for them when they put their all into the pedals.

  • The BlendTec Wildside + XR pitcher now comes standard with our for Fender Blenders. You can still buy Vitamix brand equivalent pitchers at the time of purchase or after, but they’re more expensive. Plus, we like the BlendTec pitcher better. Great news all around. Thanks BlendTec!

    This recipe comes from Jessa Hokayam of in Virginia. They whipped it up recently for a Bon Secours event, and it’s quickly becoming an e2 staple!

    Prep It In Your Pitcher:

    1. Place your banana in the bottom of the blender, closest to the blades.

    2. Add 1 cup strawberries and 1/2 cup blueberries.

    3. Add 1/2 cup fresh spinach.

    4. Squeeze 1 tsp of lemon juice in your pitcher.

    5. Add 1 tsp flax seeds and 2 tsp raw almonds.

    6. Top off with 1 cup of ice (if not using frozen fruit) and 1/2 cup of water .

    7. Cover with the lid and pop onto your ! Blend until smooth (roughly 30 sec – 1 minute, depending on how hard you pedal), adding more water for desired consistency.

    Serve immediately.

    Makes 24 oz of smoothies, or double the recipes for you 48 oz High Performance pitcher.


    For 120 -5oz servings this is what e2 recommends you buy:

    3 cups flax

    3 cups almonds

    2 pounds blueberries

    4.5 pounds strawberries

    9 pounds bananas

    50 oz (25 cups) spinach

    6 quarts water

    6 lbs ice

    1 cup lemon juice

  • bike-blender-apple-cider

    What You Need:

    – 8-10 lbs. fresh apples  (big-flavored, tangy, juicy varieties encouraged. We like Honeycrisp!)

    – water

    – two High Performance pitchers

    – 2 bowls or Cambros, 1 for apple pulp and one for juice.

    – electric kettle or access to stove and pot

    – cheesecloth, or paint straining sack

    – cutting board / knife

    – cinnamon sticks and clove (optional)

    – Fender Blender bike blender (High Performance)

    – Staff of two (1 bike and 1 food handler)


    1. Core the apples and cut them into wedges. Fill the blender pitcher with wedges.

    2. Add up to an inch of water at the bottom of the pitcher. The water is necessary to help the wedges move, and reduce in size at the beginning.

    3. Blend, blend, blend! You’re done when all the ingredients are circulating in a vortex, but don’t worry you can’t over-blend it.
    Coach, please note: It’s likely that the blade of the blender pitcher will jam at the beginning. You may have to grab the wheel and move it back and forth to help the blade reposition and be ready to power through the apples. You may also want to whack the the side of the pitcher to shake apples down into the forming vortex. Adding more water can make this whacking step unnecessary. If you do the whacking step, do it with two hands where one hand stabilizes the pitcher while the other gives it a whack. That way the pitcher won’t go flying!


    4. Dump the whole contents into the cheesecloth and then squeeze! Clean hands or gloves are essential for this step and this is why the coach can’t be the chef/food prep person.







    If you stop here you have pedal powered apple juice, continue on to make apple cider.

    5. Add a stick or 3 of cinnamon and some cloves (to taste), and heat until warm and steaming. Take notes on how long it takes to heat the juice in your electric kettle or stove top and then don’t overheat (and risk scalding your guests). For the nearly quart of juice that’s likely to result from one pitcher full of apple wedges, you probably only have to heat it for 3 minutes or so.

    For those who don’t like to waste any food, the pulp can be used in a streussel topping.

    1. Peel your banana and place in the bottom of your blender pitcher

    2. Add 1 cup yogurt

    3. Scoop in 3 cups of frozen blueberries

    4. Pour in 2 cups vanilla soy milk.

    This recipe yields 32 oz, which can be serves in 8 small samples (4oz), 3 – 4 9oz samples, or 2 16 oz beverages.

  • We are offering a free upgrade to anyone whose Fender Blender Pro seatpost looks like the one on the left and is experiencing seat slippage:

    Old seatpost on left doesn’t hold angles well.

    The issue is that the older style, sold in 2012 and 2013, can lose the knurling that holds the seat angle you set. Once it has slipped a couple times, the problem gets worse. Even if you tighten its bolt with good torque, your seat may slip back and up, looking like this:

    The seat should be flat, not pointing up like this.

    The new seatpost has better clamping force and more pronounced ridges that hold angles better. Check it out:

    The new seatpost (on right) has better grip on angles.

    To take advantage of this offer, call us at 888-354-BIKE (2453) or email us through the page.

  • , our Australian partners, have been using the at all their events. A recent event they participated in promoted Melbourne city workers to get active during their lunch break, and to eat more colorful veggies. To stick with the theme of the event they whipped up some hummus and then served it in shot glasses with veggie sticks. Everyone enjoyed it and they got lots of complements on the hummus, so give it a try! photo 1


    Ingredients: 1 15oz can chickpeas, liquid drained
    1 large lemon, juiced
    2 teaspoons crushed garlic
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 heaped tablespoon tahini
    1 teaspoon cumin

    1/4 cup water or liquid from chickpeas Pinch salt, optional

    Prep It In Your Pitcher: Blend all ingredients together with your bike blender (we recommend the High Performance option for this). Adjust garlic, lemon juice and tahini to suit your taste buds. Serve with fresh veggies!

    Alternative Ingredients:
    Try making pink hummus by adding raw grated beetroot.
    If you don’t have tahini, use 2 tablespoons of roasted sesame seeds (simply put sesame seeds on a baking tray and roast for 5 minutes).

  • This smoothie uses more banana to make it thick and should be topped with granola and even fresh fruit to make it a filling healthy breakfast.

  • Ryan Carpenter gets the Sharks pedaling healthy smoothies as he pitches his Pedal Powered smoothie carts on National TV.

    In a sense, Moberi’s Shark Tank segment was the perfect microcosm of the current debate between environmentalists and pro-business voices. The conservative sharks grilled Ryan about his ability to grow his biz without electric blenders (fossil fuels), while Ryan insisted that his customers want a more organic experience of life, and prefer to pedal their own smoothies, using purchased from Rock The Bike.”Do you have a normal blender back there you can use if the line is long?”

    “No,” said Ryan “that’s the beauty of it!”

    Well said!

    Having produced large smoothie booths at events ourselves, we know that doesn’t hold you back from quenching the thirst of a crowd. You just need to have an efficient system, a good team, and plenty of spare pitchers. Although Ryan didn’t lure the Sharks into making an investment, he successfully defended Pedal Power!

    Wonder what those smoothies taste like? Visit Moberi in Portland OR. Or use our  to find a Fender Blender in daily use closer to you.

  • First: Check with your local health department on what they require at temporary food/beverage stalls. Requirements vary by county, so if you’re planning to travel, check every place you’ll want to set up.

    Below is a blend of our experience at large crowd events and working with Bay Area health departments.

  • ned-bell-raspberry-champage-sorbet
    Above: Executive Chef Ned Bell serves bike blended Raspberry Sorbet w/ Pink Champagne to hungry guests.

    From the Chef:

    This is an incredibly easy recipe!

    We make all our own Sorbets here at the , but you should just buy some excellent raspberry or strawberry sorbet from Bella Gelateria…

    In the bottom of your Blender Bike, add:

    • 1 cup fresh berries
    • 1 cup frozen but soft sorbet
    • 1 cup of your favorite sparkling wine!
      I love BC sparkling like Sumac Ridge or Blue Mountain! Rose Bubbles are perfect for a warm spring or hot summer afternoon of evening treat!

    Spin like a mad man (or woman) to incorporate well!

    Serve in a mason jar and top with some additional fresh berries, some fresh mint, a wedge of lime and bit more bubbles poured on top! Enjoy!

     Here’s an excerpt of the evening’s recap:

    Fresh Raspberry Sorbet – made with the Vega Blender Bike!

    The highlight of the night (for us and everyone else at YEW that night) was this fresh raspberry sorbet!  Chef Bell blended a “special” vegan dessert just for us– and by blended, we mean “cycled” using the infamous Vega Blender Bike.  Not only were we entertained throughout dessert, but we thoroughly enjoyed the layering of this treat.  Dehydrated strawberries on bottom added beautiful texture.  And the sparkling rose that accompanied the sorbet really hit the spot.

  • Here’s something our friends over at have been making lately. This smoothie is filling, but a bright energy booster to help through the busy holidays and winter season!

    Fill your pitcher with:
    1 Handful of Greens (mostly Kale and Collards)
    1 Cup Unsweetened Coconut Milk
    1 TBS Coconut Oil
    1/2 Cup Frozen Pineapple
    1/2 Fresh Banana
    1 TBS Almond Butter
    1 TSP Maca (optional)

    Pop on the lid, get the pitcher on , and blend until smooth (30 – 60 sec).

  • Nut butter is packed with protein and can be a healthier alternative to smoothies.

    FullSizeRender (2)

    Above: Cashew nut butter freshly pureed with Pedal Power!


    At least 4 ounces of your raw nut of choice (cashew, almond, pecan, etc.)

    If you desire roasted nut butter put a layer of nuts on a baking sheet and bake at 350°F for 12 to 15 minutes. Stir once or twice to prevent burning.

    Puree It In Your Pitcher:

    Pour raw or roasted nuts in your High Performance pitcher and begin pedaling. It’s that easy!

    If it feels like it’s getting caught up on the edges of the pitcher you can use a little water to help the blending process. You can also scrape down the edges in between blending to help. It should be completely mixed in about 10 minutes. Raw nuts require a little more pedaling.

    You can serve up as is, or mix in salt, maple syrup, cinnamon, vanilla, etc. for a little extra flavor.


    Watch the Fossil Fool blend it on the . Nut butter starts at 3:23:
