Smoothy Bike at Tenterden May Fayre 2012

A big thanks to the mighty Phill Piddell for both the construction of the amazing Smoothy Bike and the video above. People loved the bike and I think the best reaction came from Lindsay Groves, the chap who owns the USA Cop Cars - he said, as he stood gazing in wonder at the contraption, "Now I know how people feel who stand in awe of my cars - I'm lost for words." A great day was had by all at the May Fayre in spite of the windy and slightly wet weather and the muddy ground. See you all on June 2nd when more smoothies will be pedalled into existence, in (hopefully) more smoothy-appropriate weather!
