rock the bike

Our neighborhood preschool had a fundraiser this weekend which was lots of fun. One of the big draws was that our music was amplified completely by bike power, thanks to the folks at Rock the Bike. Guests of the event had to keep pedaling so the speakers and mikes could keep working. No electricity was plugged in anywhere!

Rock the Bike also provided pedal-powered smoothies and spin art for the kids. They had to ride a stationary bike to either make the blender churn or the pin art whirl around. Tons of fun! And healthy, to boot.

How awesome!
I've been saying someone should connect the T.V. to a bike so if someone wanted to watch then they had to exercise. Come to think of why not add the computer for me?!!!
