Any colour of smoothie – just as long as it is green

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - COMMUNITY -

AN EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL group re­sorted to pedal power to make smooth­ies at Feast Day on Satur­day.

Peo­ple were able to have a go on Change4Chal­font’s bike pow­ered smoothie maker and take part in a com­pet­i­tive energy bike.

The harder the energy bike was rid­den the more lamps lit up, with a dis­play show­ing how much energy was gen­er­ated.

The win­ner was Paul David­off with 305 Watts with David Mof­fat fin­sh­ing in sec­ond place.

Roland Col­li­cott, oth­er­wise known as the Bike Doc­tor, said: “Paul is a reg­u­lar cy­clist and uses his bike to get to the sta­tion ev­ery day, which rather proves our point that cy­cling is a great way to get around and keep fit, at the same time as mak­ing a dif­fer­ence to our en­vi­ron­ment by leav­ing the car at home, sav­ing fuel and re­duc­ing CO2 emis­sions.”
