In this terrific build a bike for charity event, teams armed with wrenches and enthusiasm as they race to construct the ultimate human-powered, no-gasoline-needed rocket: children’s bicycles. From the creative folks at TeamBonding – our facilitators have helped hundreds of companies just like yours build bikes for kids for charity (more than 12,000 bicycles and counting) around the world.
One of your fondest childhood memories is probably the day you received your very first bicycle for your birthday or Christmas, wrapped with a big bow around the handlebars. You probably spent all summer outside, cycling around with your friends, or going on rides through the woods with your family.
But for the many impoverished families throughout America, it can be tough to afford the cost of food and rent, let alone luxuries like toys and bikes. Although bicycling can help children build coordination and self-esteem, and provides a wonderful source of exercise, many kids are forced to go without this cherished childhood pastime.
For most of the children involved, typically ages 7-9, this will be their first bicycle! We partner with charities such as Boys and Girls Clubs and Bikes for Tykes. We’re also happy to partner with a local charity of your choice.
2 - 3 hours
20 square feet of open space per participant is a good guideline. The Charity Bike Build can be indoors or outdoors – your office building, a ballroom or a conference room.
Our Charity Build-a-Bike event was a huge success. Matt and his team handled everything beautifully, and our group had a ton of fun. I heard nothing but positive comments afterwards. One comment today was “After working here for 12 years and participating in many team building events, this one is at the top of my list”. Seeing the kids receive the bikes was huge! We will definitely recommend you to our colleagues.- A.R. – Genentech

We heard nothing but great things about our Bike Build! It touched a lot of people and they were truly surprised when the kids came through the door. We look forward to future events!- A.L. – The Dolben Company, Inc.
