A charity team building which requires participants to use collaboration to achieve the goal of building new bikes for needy children. The Team Building event culminates in a bike donation to children in your local area.
This exciting, challenging, and rewarding program is appropriate for existing teams, cross-functional teams, or a mixed group of individuals. Groups work through challenges to collect the parts to build bicycles. Their efforts are rewarded by the opportunity to meet and directly deliver the new bikes to the children who will own them. This fast, energetic event produces excitement and the warm feelings at the end will be remembered and talked about for years.
Bicycle Team Building is the most popular team building training in the United States, and for good reason! Following a humorous and enlightening Icebreaker, your team is divided into smaller groups. In the warm up activity that is sure to create many laughs, the groups engage in actions designed to get them to start seeing their smaller groups as separate from the whole team. This simulates the silo effect often seen in companies, and causes higher levels of competition among the teams. The groups are then provided with puzzles, challenges, and obstacles they must work through. They struggle until they begin to realize that in order to succeed, they have to work outside their small group. By communicating and sharing information among the entire team progress becomes easier. Once they recognize that there is only "one team", they finish the activity and reach their goal - building bicycles for needy children. At the completion of the event, the recipients of the bicycles, from a YMCA, Boys and Girls Clubs, or other local charity, will come to collect the bicycles, and your team will have the chance to meet the children who will own the bicycles.
Since we custom design each event, you are in control! For all of our events, we want to ensure not only that the participants are having FUN, but that they are also LEARNING, and leaving the event with information and skills they can take back to their lives and workplaces to benefit them for years to come. We will accomplish your goals and guarantee you a solid return on investment.
We always custom design the event and the outcomes to benefit the participants, and design the clues around those needs. Do the participants need work practicing their Communication skills? Their Attention to Detail? Their ability to Negotiate with others?
Engage your collaboration skills, your problem solving skills, and your bodies on a great adventure of building camaraderie!

Other Bicycle Team Building Options
Perhaps your team has already done a traditional bicycle team building event and you are looking for something new and exciting, or perhaps you just want to see some more options. Because of the demand from our clients to keep bringing them new courses, we have two additional types of bicycle team building programs.
Helping America's Heroes is similar to Bicycle Team Building, but the recipients of the bicycles are military children. At the conclusion of this program, uniformed military and their families will personally come to collect the bicycles, allowing your team to meet the children who will receive the bikes. This patriotic, energetic event has an emotional impact that will never be forgotten.
Cavalcade of Cycles is a truly unique charity event. In this version of Bicycle Team Building, your team will not only assemble the bicycles, but also to decorate them to best reflect the event theme, which can be connected to the conference, corporate goals, or seasonal. The bicycles will then be part of a parade for the children who will own them, all while the parade is 'broadcast' with colorful commentary.
