    That Starbucks bike blender may look familiar because it is in fact the Byerly Bike Blender. Kudos to him for getting them out in the public eye.

    The mayor of Phoenix rode one of these at a Starbucks charity event last night. Comical to say the least.

    A well known bicycle powered blender can be found at the smoothy shop at “the end” of the drive to Hana on Maui, Hawaii. Here’s a picture of my wife making our smoothy…

    Here’s an article about a Starbucks Celebrity Blender Bike-Off Challenge for Charity held Thursday, May 25 at Trump Tower, Manhattan.

    And another mention, also from the Queens (NY) Gazette:

    Bunches Of Blenders Bike Across U.S.

    It’s not a bird, or a plane, or a school of Samba. It’s a blender bike! Throughout the summer months, Starbucks will peddle a virtual marathon across the country with a brigade of stationary bikes that when ridden, power an attached blender. Spin classes have nothing on this team of baristas. They’ll be “riding in” to various events and community gatherings around the United States, so keep your eyes peeled and don’t be afraid to flag down a cool Frappuccino drink. “Starbucks is always looking for ways to surprise and delight our customers, and what better way than to give traditional beverage sampling a new ‘spin’-literally,” Brad Stevens, vice president of Marketing, said. “Not only are these bikes engaging and entertaining, they really do blend up a tasty drink.”

    What would be great would be some universal-ish attachment for a KitchenAid mixer. Because then you could knead dough, grind meat, whip drinks, etc.

    Bikes similar to these are used at the Port Douglas markets (Australia) to crush fresh sugar cane to make a tasty juice, The market is a local handi craft market and doesn’t allow stalls to use electricity etc.
