Unleash The Beast

A while back we put the word out that we were looking for a blender. We didn't say what it was for but rumours started circulating. Was it a TARDIS? A time machine? Some sort of solar powered scooter? Well, now it can be revealed. We took the blender, given to us by Kentish Express ace reporter Tricia Jamieson...

and a cruddy old bike with a seized-up chain...

and gave them to our mate Phill, who is a bit of a dab hand  with machinery and tools, and also a kind of Heath-Robinsoneque boffin, and said "Sort that lot out, mate".

So on May 7th at the Tenterden May Fair, we will be there, with The Smoothy Bike. Just needs a lick of paint and it'll be ready. Here's what it looks like now.

If you want to see more detailed pics, drop me a line at I assure you the thing not only works, but it's fast. You really only need pedal for about 20 seconds and that it is it. Phill tested it by making a batch of nettle soup, and he said it worked great. So as soon as it's ready in glorious T3 green and white, it'll be seen at various events. At the moment it is stationary, but hopefully we'll make another one that's mobile.
