One-way ticket to Margaritaville

I was checking in on the Wheel Revolution blog when I read that Griffin just got herself a B3 bike-powered blender. Bloody hell, people, why didn't somebody tell me these things are available?

B3 stands for Byerley Bicycle Blender. It's made by one of those save-the-world, reduce-our-impact companies that's marketing it as a great way to make fruit smoothies.

I'm all for that stuff about protecting the environment, but smoothies? Are you freaking kiddin' me? Have you ever seen a bunch of bike riders standing in a circle, laughing hysterically and having the time of their lives while sipping smoothies?

Damn right you haven't.

This thing is a bike-riding margarita lover's dream. I want to put one of these suckers on a mountain bike and load up my BOB trailer with all the ingredients and a cooler full of ice.

Laissez les bons temps rouler, baby!

That would be great on a beach cruiser.

Trés cool. Does it make beer?

Sometimes it's hard to believe you technically live on the West Coast! Right here in Portland, Oregon-- home of the microbrew-- they had a couple of these up and running at last year's big bike fest in town... making smoothies!

Don't get me wrong... most cyclists here are the same booze-crazed bike riders you find anywhere else. However, we're still a bunch of tree-hugging, dirt-worshipping weirdos, and we like our fresh fruit blended, man.
