Calling our best wrenches...

OK, I have a vision, and I know that there are many of you out there who can help make it a reality! I would love it if we could get a bike blender to use for Safe Routes to School - use it to make smoothies at school health fairs, on International Walk to School Day, etc.

The blender is retrofitted to be bike powered - set up a bike on a trainer, attach the blender, pedal away to make the smoothies. Kids would eat this up! (No pun intended.) (Well, maybe a little.)

We could buy one for $250; but better yet, we can go the "do it yourself" route and spend about $25 instead.

I think we have it in us to do this! We'd take a donation of time, materials or just good company as we try to figure this out. Would make for a fun evening. Check out the plans and see what you think. Who's in?
