Fender Blender Pro

No one is responsible for bringing as many Bike Blended Smoothies into the world as Rock The Bike. We invented the Fender Blender, the only bike blender on the market. We have successfully produced all-day smoothie booths at festivals such as Whole Earth Festival and Harmony, and we regularly blend at our Pedal Powered Stage music events to keep the pedalers happy and cool during peak moments.

“We would like to thank Rock The Bike for allowing us to rent out smoothie bikes for this year’s FunFest at the SF Giants’ AT&T Park! We managed to serve over 2,200 smoothies and received more thanks and smiles than we could have ever asked for. This was a first for LIFT and you helped us pull it off! Thanks again for working with us in such short notice and for helping us make this past weekend a success!”     –Sincerely, The LIFT Team

A Bike Blender makes a huge impact at your event. The sound of ice crushing is a great head turner, and research shows that pedal power makes smoothies taste better.

Our event clients most commonly rent the Fender Blender Pro and man their own blender stations. Rock The Bike can also help you with a fully staffed smoothie station.

Rental cost $250 / day without Rock the Bike crew. We recommend a couple practice rounds before the day of your event.

We estimate the cost of ingredients to be $1 per 12 oz. smoothie.

Client is responsible for pickup and dropoff, which can occur the day before and the day after your event. The Fender Blender Pro is available for pickup in our Berkeley shop. It comes with a commercial-grade blender pitcher, the Vita-Mix. Extra pitchers can be rented for $20 per event day.

The Fender Blender Pro can be shipped and rented in other cities. It was designed with a detachable frame feature that allows us to ship it at reasonable rates while being easy to setup. 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 – $250 per bike in the continental US) and a packaging fee of $85. If our rental schedule permits it, we often work with clients to waive the transit days and only charge for the days of use.

If you want a Rock The Bike crewmember to be there coaching this activity at your event, the crew fee is $550 / day, plus $320 / day for each additional crewmember. Our crew will make sure the smoothies are tasty, the bike is set up properly, and that many event participants get a chance to take part. The cost of crew does not include the rental fee or cost of ingredients. For more smoothies, we recommend renting extra pitchers ($20 each), too.

Fender Blender Bike Blenders are also available for purchase from Rock the Bike, starting at $249.


Ice Cream Bike

Bike Powered Ice Cream Maker. We’ve seen the power of the Fender Blender, and we’ve kicked it up a notch. Serve up ice cream at your event, and allow guests to make their own flavors.

1.5 gallon capacity in 15 minutes, that’s 4.5 gallons of ice cream an hour! Ages as low as 12 can bike, all ages can enjoy.

$600 / day. Only available to rent, includes a 2 person Rock the Bike crew in Bay Area. Approved partners can rent the Ice Cream Bike without crewmembers for $400 / day.  Also available to rent through Ample Hills Creamery in Brooklyn, New York.

Ingredients for custard, mix-ins, ice, and rock salt not included. Costs approximately $1 / person, but depends on serving size and if you use organic ingredients. Custard must be prepared and chilled prior to the event. Also compatible with Frozen Yogurt and Sorbet recipes! Pair with a Fender Blender Pro and make milkshakes at your event.

Pedal Powered Spin Art

Great for smaller kids, who will be able to power the experience for each other. Spin Art is interactive, colorful, creative, peaceful, and inspiring.

With just a few pedal strokes, you can get the platter of your Pedal Powered Spin Art station spinning at 5000-10000 RPM, enough to produce dazzling spirals, circles, and streaks as you squirt paint on the paper.

Kids flock to the station, staring in awe as the colors spin and splatter across the paper. Older kids or parents can pedal for youngsters. Children as young as seven can enjoy this activity. Let them bring home artwork and memories from your event!

$800 / day for paint, paper, and Rock the Bike crew. Crew it yourself for $350 / day, and we’ll still provide you with the tempera paint and the paper. You can also use your own 8.5″ x 11″ paper with the company letterhead, or a stamp with your logo on it! Hosting a long event? We can provide you with extra paint for an additional paint. Please inquire about fees, as they are quantity-based.

Client is responsible for pickup and dropoff, which can occur the day before and the day after your event. We can arrange for pick up in our Berkeley shop or in San Francisco.


Pedal Powered Stage

If you truly want to showcase human power in its most social form, getting your event participants to power up a band, street performer, speaker, or DJ is probably the most powerful example there is. Bringing the Pedal Powered Stage to your event is a more significant effort, requiring a larger crew. We have full audio packages for Pedal Powered Stages.

Price: TBD

There are some questions we’d like you to answer before you call us.

Pedal Powered Knowledge Portal

Recharge Dome at Virgin Festival in Baltimore by you.

One person can easily generate the power to charge 5, 10, or even 15 cell phones at at time using our cell phone recharge station.  Seen above in use at the 2008 Virgin Mobile Festival as a “Recharge Bar.”

Rock The Bike’s recharge bar is either based on a Fender Blender Pro frame or a Mundo 500. Both have a wide size range to fit men, women, and most kids.
Pedal Power at Dreamforce

Don’t limit your possibilities to cell phones. Power a laptop and speaker and let the pedaler choose videos and web content to share with a small group. Great for conventions, meetings, and all-day events where people need power for mobile devices.
