Bike n’ Blend is a pop up events company promoting cycling, sustainability, health and happiness.
We are a team of passionate event organisers who believe in ethical and sustainable practices to create a happier and healthier world – one smoothie event at a time! We use washable or recyclable cups, purchase most supplies from local companies and regularly donate to UNICEF.
The business was started by Leena van Raay in March 2011 at small farmers’ markets with the help of her partner Gil Rind. She now has a team of dedicated staff running events in Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide and recently in Brisbane!
Bike n’ Blend is perfect for engaging and inspiring your audience through entertaining catering, brand exposure or promoting sustainability and healthy at events.
The blender bikes have been designed and hand-built in Australia specifically for smoothie and cocktail making. There are over 40 adult sized blender bikes plus 8 kid-sized blender bikes too.

What our happy healthy Bike n’ Blenders are saying
- “Bike ’n’ Blend turned out to be the perfect activity for us at the Sydney Rd Street Party. We ended up generating over 60 leads as well as selling a few hundred smoothies which offset part of the costs. Overall we spent less than we did last year and got a much better result. It also gave us a really natural way to interact with existing and potential customers. Your team had everything covered too, which meant we could just focus on our product without having to think about the ins and outs of smoothie making!”
“Bike n Blend was a fantastic extra at our breakfast event! I found Bike n Blend to be a very social and interactive experience which is great for anyone looking to add something a little bit ‘different ’to their next function. The service was fantastic and the product was delicious! Thank you Bike n Blend, look forward to hosting an event with you again soon!”
“Hi Leena, I just wanted to write to you and say thanks for providing the bikes for us for the Diamond Creek Fair. Your organisation was fantastic and I felt like we were personally looked after at every point, so I’m very appreciative. Stuart did a great job running the stall with our young people, and we’ll definitely be using Bike n Blend again. It was a hit! Thanks so much”
“Bike n Blend was an integral part of my recent event at Epping railway station. Leena and Angelique were both professional and fun, and really made the event come alive. The ‘bike blenders’ attract a lot of attention, and are an excellent way to promote your product. I have no hesitation in recommending Bike n’ Blend to anyone.”
“We used Bike n’ Blend at the largest events and meetings trade show in Australasia (AIME) and the feedback and engagement we got completely exceeded our expectations! Everyone who walked by had to stop to have a conversation with us, take photos or get on the bike themselves. We had people coming over telling us, ‘I heard about the bike and I had to see for myself’. Thanks to Bike n’ Blend’s help it was such a success that we won Best New Exhibitor stand. Thank you guys, you changed the game for us with your product and service!”
