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.
Bike n’ Blend is perfect for engaging and inspiring your audience through entertaining catering, brand exposure or promoting sustainability and health at events.
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 and Brisbane.
Before she started Bike n’ Blend, Leena was a full-time medical scientist researching stroke and epilepsy in major Melbourne hospitals. In March 2011 she shifted her focus to prevention. She left her job at the hospital for a role that now inspires people to live a healthier lifestyle in a fun a quirky way to prevent rather than cure disease.

Bike n’ Blend’s Mission
We believe in ethical and sustainable practices for a happier and healthier world for all to enjoy (and for a long time!)
To be Australia’s leading bike themed pop up company so we can support and donate to international and local organisations who share our vision
We put the planet and our people before profit all while delivering an outstanding service. We believe in “be the change you want to see”.
We do this by:
Providing outstanding professional pop-up bike themed activations;
Making health and wellbeing easy and fun for any demographic;
Adopting sustainable and ethical practices by buying produce locally using washable and biodegradable cups (and taking a stance on not using straws or lids), and donating to UNICEF and local organisations;
Partnering with businesses that share a similar mission.
Thus supporting us supports our wonderful planet.
We also hand built each blender bike in Melbourne.
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!”
