Build A Bike is a team building activity that gives back to the community! Put down your devices and get hands-on with this rewarding and challenging event. This event is way more than just building bikes – it’s about teamwork and accomplishing a common goal together.
10 – 250 participants
We require an in or outdoor venue big enough for your group to play a series of games and build some bikes. Ask us for suggestions!
Recommended duration is 2.5hrs (min duration = 1.5hrs, max duration = 3hrs)
Build A Bike combines a rewarding team building activity with an even more rewarding donation to a local bike-distribution charity! The event is hosted by professional actors who bring all the heart and humour you could hope for. They get your group into teams and explain the task ahead: the game will begin with a series of challenges that are all themed around design & engineering to gear us towards the final building component.
These games can be in or outdoor and will require teams to work together and identify your individual strengths. We steer clear of trust falls or traditional workshop icebreakers and instead play a series of hands on, interactive and fun constructions challenges. These include using limited materials to problem solve your way to a puzzle that is just out of reach, building the tallest free-standing tower, creating a pulley system to transport M&M’s to a teammate, and piecing together giant puzzles. Each challenge will involve problem solving, innovation, creativity, communication, and a certain level of MacGyver-ness to really bring out the big kid in everyone.
The top performing teams for each challenge will earn points that go towards your total score! Just before we announce the winning team, we reveal the big surprise: the final task, worth no points but all heart, will see teams build a kit-bike that will be donated to a well deserving family in a local community. With a variety of bikes for both children and adults, you’ll not only be giving the gift of joy riding but also a means of transport to work, school, and important services.
With the bikes complete and the room full of feel-good vibes, all that’s left to do is reveal the winning team from the team building component of the day (although it’s hard not to feel like everyone is a winner with this activity!). With medals around the winning teams’ necks and “We Are The Champions” being sung loud and proud, we load up the bikes and go and make a local charities’ day. We promise to make yours in the process.
