Photos from the Activate Omaha Bike Blender construction, Part 1

Wednesday night, seven of Omaha's mad scientists, er, I mean brightest bike blender mechanics, showed up at the Community Bike Shop to begin construction of a bike blender. Among them were high school and middle school students looking to have some fun while making a difference in the community.

This device, or perhaps multiple devices, will be used to make smoothies at Safe Routes to School functions to show kids (and grown up kids) just how much fun bicycles can be.

If you'd like to get involved, there will be other events to finish the contruction of the blenders. Help will also be needed to get the blenderbikes (donated by the CBSO) cleaned up and in working order. Of course, moral support (i.e.: those of us who are social scientists rather than mechanical/mad ones) is also welcome!

There is talk about also building an bike-powered ice cream maker, as well!! Stay tuned!
