There’s a good reason the Bike-A-Thon™ Bicycle Team Building event is the most recognized concept in charity team building workshops.
It’s been around a good long time and it just keeps getting better with age! Building bicycles for local kids seems to bring out a certain cooperative magic in groups, one that leads to all kinds of good things.
Building bikes, making local connections.
One good outcome of the Bike-A-Thon™ bicycle team building workshop is the smiles we see when kids show up to receive their bikes. As the final activity for this workshop, a representative from the receiving charity is asked to attend a donation ceremony. Very often, they’ll bring some kids with them for an exciting exchange of bikes and smiles.
Most of our clients say this final ceremony is their favorite part of the entire workshop!
A lot goes into the building of bikes for kids.
Clients may love the donation ceremony, but they love the long-term effects of building teamwork skills too! You see, groups are building bicycles but this and all our charity workshops are designed in a way that teams are challenged to improve their skills while they have fun working for charity.
For example, we don’t just give teams the tools and parts they need to complete their bicycles. They have to earn them! It’s how we work in the skill-building components of this fun, engaging workshop. Teams are focused on achieving fun goals set before them so they can build their bikes, but facilitators are there to see that all this positive energy is put to good use on several levels.
The result is a fun day for teams who come away with an improved set of skills that easily transfer back to the workplace.
