Fun, Active Health Promotion!
How the Urban Smoothie Story Began
I've always been fascinated by food and its effects on health. And I've always wanted to care for people.
My background was in the catering industry but I was drawn to healthcare and worked professionally as a Homeopath for many years. I also set up a well known Complementary Health Centre in Cambridge with a host of practitioners. Happy to say it's still thriving though I moved on.
I moved into community healthcare, managing deprived inner city health projects for the NHS. I specialised in cycling based initiatives and was tasked to build a smoothie bike as part of a project in 2007.
It wasn't until the funding finally ceased and my contract ended that I decided to carry on working with the smoothie bike as a health promotion tool as I had seen first hand how much of a positive impact it had made to the families we had engaged with.
Hello Urban Smoothie Bikes!
It took awhile of doing other jobs and testing the market before launching Urban Smoothie Bikes in 2013. I had a simple mission: to run a small business which at its core encourages health and wellbeing. We started out with two humble smoothie bikes, a double garage and bucket loads of enthusiasm.
Now, seven years on with a fleet of smoothie bikes, a huge corporate and community following and a fabulous team of staff, the dream has unfolded into a dynamic and fast-paced reality.
Our drive and enthusiasm continues to weave its fruity magic and we are constantly developing new ideas and best practice as we provide fantastic pedal powered events across the UK.
It's definitely working!
With seven years under our belts and loads and loads of brilliant feedback it's very satisfying to know that our smoothie bikes can inspire and motivate people to make those small incremental changes that help to improve and sustain long term health goals.
Mothers anecdotes of their children who never ate fruit now starting to eat it and enjoy it too, or adults who had not ridden a bike since childhood suddenly bringing all their memories back having great fun pedalling and just the good vibe of people deciding to get their dusty bike out of the shed or start being more active - These are the wonderful rewards that truly makes it worthwhile for us, so lets have some positive healthy fun and encourage good healthy living, because we all need it!
Thank you very much for your time, please get in touch and see how we can help you and your team make some positive changes!
