The Charity Bike Build
TeamBonding partners with local children’s organizations (such as Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs, etc.), wherever your event takes place, to offer this charitable team building event. This activity will contribute a memorable gift to children who would otherwise never have the joy you experienced while riding your first bicycle.
The World's Greatest Team Building Program
IT’S THE BEST TEAM BUILDING PROGRAM YOU WILL EVER EXPERIENCE!
Take your corporate and social responsibility initiatives to the next level! Get your team in gear, armed with wrenches and enthusiasm as they race to build the ultimate human-powered, no-gasoline-needed rockets: children’s bicycles! For more than 12 years we have helped hundreds of companies just like yours build and donate more than 18,000 children’s bicycles and counting, around the world. It’s our favorite program, bar none.
Do you remember getting your very first bicycle, maybe as a birthday or Christmas present? Summers were spent riding bikes around the neighborhood with friends and family. So many children never get to experience this cherished pastime. That’s where you come in!
For most of the children involved, typically ages 5-9, the bikes you build will be their first one ever! The charity bike build program is powerful from the outset and engages people immediately in a way that they have never experienced before! Purpose allows people to work harder and with more passion than if the work were just for themselves. Work inter-dependently working with everyone on your team every step of the way. Often we are able to coordinate children on site to accept the bikes. The smiles, the tears, the perfect team building event!

I just wanted to thank you for your assistance with the bike build. The build went off without a hitch, the teams were really into the competition not knowing that the kids would be showing up later in the day. Once the kids arrived, it was just awesome and our folks loved it.
"Teambonding did a terrific job with our bike build event! Everyone at our company enjoyed the event, and the facilitators were terrific. It was one of our best events and people at all levels were very engaged. Highly recommend Teambonding's activities!"
"Awesome Bike Build activity! Paul did an amazing job facilitating this activity with our highly global team. He tweaked a couple of things at the moment to make sure everyone involved was able to participate and feel like a valued member. I would definitely recommend this company again"
"Overall, the bike build was a huge success, and many students said it was their favorite part of orientation. I'd be happy to provide more specific feedback to you in the next week or two. Have a great long weekend and thank you for everything, and I look forward to being in touch again soon!"
"It was awesome! We all had a great time answering the questions, doing the obstacle course and the “commercial”. It was hilarious. It was also great that Officer Drummy was able to accept the bikes on behalf of the organization."
Our Charity Bike Build donation 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.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I had my bike building/team building event yesterday. Our event was FANTASTIC!! My team enjoyed themselves and we were able to surprise them with the children receiving the bikes at the end that just brought home our efforts in such a phenomenal way. Sheryl and team were a pleasure to work with! I am shouting from the roof top this morning about your company and recommending you to everyone I know. Thank you again!
We had just a delightful time! All the team members enjoyed themselves and the experience!
Charity bike build event facilitated by TeamBonding was a great way to cap off a professional development day. From start to finish, TeamBonding's communication and handling of all logistics that allowed for a seamless event experience. Jayne and her team where great and participant feedback was positive. Thank you!
Had a great time doing the Charity Bike Build Event - Kevin and his team were super - professional and efficient and made sure all details were covered. TeamBonding was super easy to work with and provided us with a great event for our employees.
The event was a lot of fun and engaging and really brought our team together. The facilitators were great and kept everything running smoothly. The team thoroughly enjoyed the event and it was even better that we got to complete an event for charity and help the community. Great event by a great team and we will definitely reach out again for future team building events.
This year (our third with Teambonding) we did the charity bike build. Our facilitators were excellent (Christian, Olivia, Tommy) and our team of 62 had a fantastic morning. There was a nice blend of cerebral and physical challenges, and it really served to create opportunities for real collaboration. This activity was the culmination of a few days of working together (we have teams on both coasts) and I have already recommended it to others.
I heard from the lead Client that everyone enjoyed the activity, and were grateful it was for a local charity.
We had a great conference and the bike build was one of the highlights! Thank you so much for coordinating and putting us in touch with Wendy and the team. They did an absolute great job of preparing and getting our team engaged and excited. We look forward to working with TeamBonding in the future, maybe for another type of event. Please extend my thanks to Wendy and the onsite team who were a blast!
"This was a great team building event as everyone was participating and having fun! Doing an activity that also benefits the local community is very rewarding and we received several comments that this was the best team building event we have participated in."
"It was a wonderful part of our graduation module. Everyone really enjoyed it and our competitive group jumped right in! Look forward to doing it again next year."
"Thanks for reaching out! I’d say the teams really liked the program, it was fun, well-organized and it was great to be able to do something good especially in the context of Thanksgiving coming soon."
"My company had the best time. We actually had your company come to our Casino to do the Charity Bike Build. It was a huge success. We loved our Instructor, and I was able to contact the Boys & Girls Club myself and organized them to come to pick up the bikes with the kids. My team had a blast. We laughed so hard. It was a great bonding experience. We will definitely be using your company again. I have also passed out the company information to all of the other departments since we are all on separate budgets."
"TeamBonding created an incredible experience for our 600 graduate students. Of all our orientation activities, the TeamBonding Bike Build was by far the one students most enjoyed and rated the highest in their feedback. Paul and the whole team adapted the Bike Build on the fly to accommodate the specific challenges that our large and diverse group posed. It was a memorable event that helped start our school year off with service and community at the center!"
"The event was AMAZING. Everyone had a lot of fun, and the team bonding workers were fantastic. I’ve only heard positive feedback from the team."
"Program was very nice and everything ran smoothly. I really appreciate the work of you and your team."
"The event went so well yesterday, the team loved it and were very engaged and Ben and his group of facilitators were amazing!"
"We had a wonderful time in the bike build. I think it was the highlight of the day! The group had a great time. Here are some pictures from the night. It was great!"
"The entire experience was fantastic and I received nothing but great reviews from all of those that attended. Our host and staff were seasoned and did a great job of warming everyone up and guiding them through the exercise. The planning phase was also really smooth and you were able to deliver in a tighter time frame which I really appreciate. I will definitely be utilizing the service again!"
"What an amazing event! Truthfully, I was not sure what to expect but your team and the activity could NOT have gone any better. We had rave reviews from our executives and the folks who competed! I hope to work with you all again soon. Please feel free to reach out with new activities that we can incorporate into future events."
