Smoothie Bike

What’s cooler than a bicycle? A bicycle that can make you a smoothie! Riding a bike has been shown to increase cardiovascular fitness, increase muscle strength and flexibility, improve joint mobility, decrease stress levels, improve posture and coordination, and strengthen bones. Come reap all those benefits AND enjoy a delicious custom smoothie made by YOUR own power and peddle your way to better wellth! We only have one smoothie-making bike so it will be used on a first-come, first-serve basis. How does it work? Well, you hop on the stationary bike and pedal to generate enough force to blend the smoothie apparatus attached to the bike. And, voila! We will then pour the smoothie you made into cups for all to enjoy. The whole process should take about five minutes per person.
