We rent our best bike blender, the Fender Blender Pro (Vitamix edition), for $250 per event day. Each comes with a commercial-grade, NSF-rated Vitamix blender pitcher, the same kind in use at smoothie shops. Extra pitchers can be rented for $20, and we recommend extras so you can increase the throughput of the activity.

For rentals in the Bay Area, the client is responsible for pickup and drop off. There is no charge to pick up a day before your event and return the day after. Our main pickup location is our workshop in Berkeley, but we can also arrange pickup in San Francisco. Our delivery fee starts at $100.
For out of town rentals, we package and ship the Fender Blenders to you, so they arrive the day before your event, then you ship them back the day after your event. The rental rate is $250 per event day + cost of shipping both ways (usually $150 – $300 per bike in the continental US) and a packaging fee of $85. If this cost is too great for your budget, we recommend purchasing a FB Universale, which starts at $249. Unfortunately, we do not rent the Fender Blender Universale.
**New: Pallet Shipping** Ship your rental on a pallet anywhere in the Continental US and receive your Fender Blender Pro ready to blend, no assembly necessary! Contact us today to get an estimate (please provide a destination address). Pallet packaging is $120 for 1 pallet (1-2 bikes) or $150 for 2 pallets (3+ bikes).
Rock the Bike can supply experienced crewmembers who can cover all aspects of this activity. We’ll bring the bike, coach the activity, and ensure higher volumes at your event. The crew fee is $550 / day for the first crewmember and $320 / day for each additional crewmember. We’re fun-loving and outgoing event people. We’ll make sure the smoothies are sweet and tangy, and that everyone gets a chance to pedal. Crew fees do not include the cost of ingredients.
Here’s what Cost Plus World Market had to say about Rock the Bike crewing their Health Fair: The smoothie bike was a huge hit and a lot of employees said that they loved you as the facilitator, that you were fun and friendly. Thanks for making our event successful!
Our Fender Blender Pro will need a 10′ x 6′ space, as well as a table to prepare ingredients. This space will fit the bike, crew, table, and some extra space for spectators.
We offer full vinyl custom wheel wraps for rentals, and they are quite eye catching. The fee for printing graphics, installation and post-event removal is $450 per bike. Artwork must be received in print ready format. For an additional $300 fee, Rock the Bike can assist with graphic layout, design and include a rendering proof.
